Agatha Wojciechowsky in "Vestiges & Verse: Notes from the Newfangled Epic"

Exhibition poster, American Folk Art Museum
"Vestiges & Verse: Notes from the Newfangled Epic" unites more than two hundred and fifty works by twenty-one seminal and recently discovered self-taught artists, who will be introduced for the first time through the examination of the idiosyncratic structures of their lifelong, intricate narratives—notably, their sequential and developing aspects. Rare manuscripts, series of drawings, illustrated notebooks with coded texts, expanding cartography, journals, and multi-part collages will provide an art historical and pluridisciplinary perspective on the mechanisms behind visual storytelling.
