Have you ever been curious about how artists might interpret the fantasy work of reclusive outsider artist Henry Darger? The upcoming group exhibition Realms of the Unreal scratches that itch with an impressive lineup of imaginative artists who have created depictions of Darger’s various characters.

If you’re in Brooklyn this coming Saturday, September 12, you can see the works in person starting at 7PM at Gristle Gallery, located at 26 Bushwick Ave. Not in Brooklyn? View the online gallery here.

  1. I saw an exhibit of Darger’s work in Chicago back in the 90’s. They basically emptied out his entire apartment of anything one might consider art and put it on display. It was utterly fascinating. Some of his older journals had drawings of children in them, mixed in with weird advertisements that he clipped from newspapers. You could see he was clearly a bit ‘interrupted’ even back then. I know there was speculation that he was a pedophile…I have my own thoughts on that.
