Artisans on Taylor presents Internal Guidance Systems: 2006-2007 USA Visionary Art Tour; Curated by Anne Grgich with Colin Rhodes

Internal Guidance Systems is a "must see gathering of visionary, folk and outsider art. IGS includes an array of well-known and established artists from the Pacific Northwest, as well as, national and international visionaries, Raw Classics Folk and Emerging and Cross Over Artists.

"Internal Guidance Systems presents the best of that art which lives at the of heart of our lives and yet, curiously comes out of the margins. This is compelling work that grows out of its creators like a plant grows out of the ground, taking the very fabric of contemporary life, it transmutates into significant message. It speaks!"

Colin Rhodes.

INTERNAL GUIDANCE SYSTEMS.

What a perfect title for a show! So what is it that makes the outsider/visionary artist special?
It is this – the ‘allowing’ of that innate sense of creativity, spontaneous and unsullied by art school or other training – Internal Guidance.

In this age of hype and ego and promotion of the Self, how refreshing that artists are emerging for whom the most important thing isn’t self-aggrandisement, but rather the pure, choiceless expression of their artistic creativity.

All those in this touring show are extraordinary examples of artists who have surrendered to this inner intelligence and produced Art that is new, hugely imaginative and unfettered by cultural conditioning. Let us honour them and other creators of their ilk, as explorers of uncharted territories, fearless and prepared to risk all.

Henry Boxer 2007

Internal Guidance Systems runs all of September and October, with two openings. The first opening will be September the 1st, then IGS will be completely refreshed with new work and a new look for a second opening on October the 6th.

This is a good documentary about New York gangs from the late 70s. There are 8 parts so watch em all. When I moved to New York one of the first things I saw was a Savage Skull tag in the town close to where I lived.

A classic line in the movie is when the reporter asks the gangmember: Where do you get money from?From what?

He answers: From just being cool.

As global warming deepens, and a somber, new reality sinks in, people are starting to ask some uncomfortable questions: Why am I being told to buy a new car a dozen times every day? Why am I constantly being urged to splurge on myself ‘because I’m worth it’? Why, in this ecological age of ours, do we need a $500-billion industry telling us thousands of times each day to consume more? In the affluent West (where 80 percent of the global ad dollars are spent), don’t we already consume enough?-Kalle Lasn Adbusters
