Alan Kaufman is an author-in-residence in The New York Public Library’s Frederick Lewis Allen Room and author of the groundbreaking ‘Outlaw’ anthologies. The fourth and latest in the series is The Outlaw Bible of American Art , a 700 page revolutionary art world alternative canon of marginalized or famed autodidactic paint-slinging loners who followed their own outrageous, sometimes catastrophic visions to the heights of fame or the depths of neglect. Documenting movements from the Post-war to the present, this anthological barbaric yawp contains manifestos, essays, interviews and biographies, plus hundreds of full color and black and white images and rare photos from some of the most cutting edge American artists, photographers, sculptors an art writers.
Kaufman will present highlights and rare images from this underground history, profiling such artists and moments as Boris Lurie and the NO!art movement, Forrest Bess, Ana Mendieta, Ed Clark, Sue Coe, Joe Coleman, Clayton Patterson, The Guerrilla Art Action Group, David Wojnarowitz, Jose ‘Cochise’ Quiles and others.
