Description

The Outlaw Bible of American Art is a 700 page revolutionary art world shocker: a Who's Who alternative canon of marginalized or famed audodidactic paint-slinging loners who followed their own outrageous, sometimes catastrophic visions to the heights of fame or the depths of Hell. Documenting movements from the Post-war to the present, this anthological barbaric yawp contains manifestoes, essays, interviews and biographies from some of the most cutting edge American art writers plus hundreds of full color and black and white images and rare photos that bring together everything from NO! artists, Blackstract Expressionists, Beats and Beckettian Distortionists to Dystopic Futuristic Pranksters, Subcultural Gonzo Anthropologists and Self-Mutilating Visionary Unigenderists in a rollicking visually gorgeous celebration of the reclaimed no-holds-barred spirit of American Art. Includes Boris Lurie, Forrest Bess, Gertrude Stein, Tom Wolfe, Dash Snow, Carlo McCormick, Annie Sprinkle, John Yau, Allen Ginsberg, R. Crumb, Claes Oldenberg, Thomas Nozkowski, Richard Kern, Joe Coleman, Molly Crabapple, Nick Zedd, David Wojnarowicz and hundreds more.show more
