Marwencol: photographs from Mark Hogancamp and David Naugle
May 21 - June 25, 2011
“Hogancamp’s project is undoubtedly a textbook example of outsider art, and enthralls for that genre’s particular reasons — aesthetic innocence, genuine otherness. But even without knowledge of the artist’s life, the photos step beyond neo-kitsch into a realm where child-like transference merges with a dramatic grandeur to create both a feeling of vintage Hollywood artifice and authentic pathos.“ -- Michael Atkinson, The Village Voice, October 6, 2010
