This compendium engages art critics, art educators, and art therapists in a conversation about artists with disabilities in non-traditional settings. For the sake of clarity, this population is subsumed under the term 'Outsider.' The idiosyncratic, often passionate and self-taught nature of 'Outsider' art has captured the interest of the members of these fields, posing provocative questions about the social order and its inherent exclusion. The contributors to this volume hope to arrive at not further division, but a continuum suitable for the human condition.
