The Studio Museum takes a fascinating look at the relationships in African-American art between self-taught and trained artists, making the point that the former occupy a far bigger position in the annals of black culture than white outsider artists do within the European canon. The show also points to the role of the Deep South,—and the legacy of slavery and segregation—in spawning the region's rich roster of talents who, compelled only by their individual vision and innate sense of craft, created amazing works of art.
