"The beauty of ideas is that they are like waves in the ocean and they connect with things that came before them, and I think it is very important to embrace things that interest you and influence you, and incorporate them into what you do, as all artists have always done."

"If he were in the prime of his career today and shooting digital, what camera would Henri Cartier-Bresson be using?
Answer: black Nikon 1 V1 with only the 18.5mm f/1.8 lens and the markings blacked out with electrical tape."

Turning the Art World Inside Out
Inspired by the activities of The Museum of Everything, Alan Yentob - the Creative Director of the BBC - travels across the world to discover why so-called outsider art has gone from being one of the most overlooked art-forms of the late 20th century, to one of the most essential of the 21st century.
In this episode from his acclaimed BBC documentary strand, Alan travels from Japan’s Miho Mountains to California’s Creative Growth Center, encountering artists like Paul Laffoley, George Widener, Dan Miller and William Scott, alongside Ionel Talzapan, Joe Coleman, Heinrich Reisenbauer and Shinichi Sawada.
Alongside The Museum of Everything are contributions by some of the genre’s many admirers and activists, including curators Massimiliano Gioni (New Museum, NY) and Ralph Rugoff (Hayward Gallery, London) and art critics Roberta Smith (New York Times) and Jerry Saltz (New York Magazine).
They are joined by gallerists Frank Maresca (Ricco Maresca, NY) and Henry Boxer (Henry Boxer Gallery, London) and pioneers John Maizels (Raw Vision, London) and Rebecca Hofberger (American Visionary Art Museum, Baltimore), who together try to assess the challenges posed by the alternative art historical narrative.
Turning the Art World Inside Out is a poetic and dynamic film, directed by award-winning filmmaker Jack Cocker, which has already been seen by over one million viewers.
