Thanks to Jessie and Khaya at Bone and Ink Press for publishing three of my pretty weird poems from a new chapbook I’m working on. Perfect for this gray Autumn day.

I was reading #thelonelycity by #olivialaing when I read about this exhibit. I remember writing it down, thinking that’s a place i should see during my lifetime. And then I just decided to see it? To make it happen? What a dream to stand here today.

Had the best time wasting time with @lismonise for the last few days. Didn’t take a lot of photos, but here are a few. #badkids #henrydarger #intuitmuseumchicago #tikibabe #slayer

What’s inside the box? Who cares cuz we’re thinking outside the box I thought, another gone piece that didn’t make the move. It’s a study of Tony Smith’s Die models he made in 1962 in preparation for the final Die piece fabricated in 1968 and drawing on the xerox collage work of Basquiat al la Dargeresq figures so one big pile of almost everything with a side of scotch bonnet sauce #construction #sculpture #Tonysmith #basquiat #henrydarger #xeroxart

Utterly unknown during his lifetime, Henry Darger led a quiet, secluded existence as a janitor on Chicago's North Side. When he died, his landlord discovered a treasure trove of more than three hundred canvases and more than 30,000 manuscript pages depicting a rich, shocking fantasy world―many featuring hermaphroditic children being eviscerated, crucified, and strangled.
While some art historians tend to dismiss Darger as possibly psychotic, Jim Elledge cuts through the cloud of controversy and rediscovers Darger as a damaged and fearful gay man, raised in a world unaware of the consequences of child abuse or gay shame. This thoughtful, sympathetic biography tells the true story of a tragically misunderstood artist. Drawn from fascinating histories of the vice-ridden districts of 1900s Chicago, tens of thousands of pages of primary source material, and Elledge's own work in queer history, Henry Darger, Throwaway Boy also features a full-color reproduction of a never-before-seen canvas from a private gallery in New York, as well as a previously undiscovered photograph of Darger with his lifelong companion William Schloeder, or "Whillie" as Henry affectionately referred to him.
Engaging, arresting, and ultimately illuminating,  Henry Darger, Throwaway Boy brings alive a complex, brave, and compelling man whose outsider art is both challenging and a triumph over trauma.

As you may have known, art is a big part of our lives. It was fun to view the exhibit of Outliers and American Vanguard Art at the High museum of modern art, Atlanta. SWIPE for my favorite Henry Darger and some other pieces. .
