On the Very Idea of  “Outsider Art”

The Montréal’s Reflections on Art and Aesthetics Workshop  (MRAAW) aims at bringing together those who share an interest for questions regarding art and aesthetics. Whether  it  is a matter of reflecting on artistic practices, art history, or  the experiences  that artworks elicit,  the MRAAW  is a  special  forum where researchers from various fields are given the chance to share the state of their research with other members of Montréal’s academic community. The heart of MRAAW’s activities consists of meetings held approximately every month. Each meeting comprises a 30 to 60 minute presentation held in French or English, followed by an hour of discussion. The texts of the presentations are made available at least one week in advance. Extraordinary meetings will also take place that will feature guest speakers from outside Québec.
