Outsiderwear

OUTSIDERWEAR
Streetwear by Outsider and Insider Artists


Outsider artists tend to be a little bit different. They often sidestep a conventional arts education, and operate outside of the mainstream art world. Sometimes they face mental or physical disabilities, homelessness and vulnerability. 

Outsiderwear is a new collaborative project combining talented outsider artists with a range of fashion designers and creatives, both emerging and established.

For the first edition of Outsiderwear, some 40 out- and insider artists join forces: sometimes in pairs, as well as in other, larger compositions. In the coming months, these teams will undertake a diverse range of creative projects: from performances and exhibitions to a series of band shirts and an underwear line. The result of these experimental collaborations will be shown and sold during the multidisciplinary Outsiderwear Festival, running from 12 March to 25 April 2021 in Amsterdam.

Outsiderwear is an initiative of artist Jan Hoek and Foundation Captain Hoek, in collaboration with Foundation M-ODE and Outsider Art Galerie.

Outsiderwear Festival

Lasting six weeks, the first Outsiderwear Festival seeks to celebrate creativity in all its forms, combining the worlds of outsider and insider artists in stimulating ways. Multiple locations in Amsterdam will host surprising exhibitions, shop-in-shops, an activist photo campaign, and a number of tours and talks.
Confirmed festival locations include Outsider Art Galerie, Hermitage Amsterdam, Patta Store, Galerie Vriend van Bavink and Zeedijk60.

The participants come from a range of varied backgrounds, from niche artists and big streetwear labels to independent designers and visual artists. During the Outsiderwear Festival, the following collaborations will be presented:

Despite increasing attention for outsider art – now with its own museums, biennials and galleries – this world rarely experiences close contact with the creative industry at large. Outsiderwear wants to break this dichotomy, because many outsiders deserve wider recognition, whilst many insider makers feel a deep affinity with unconventional outsider practices.

Jan Hoek: "The first collaborations of Outsiderwear are beginning to take shape. It’s so special to see how logically the collaboration between outsiders and insiders works. I look forward to a future in which the boundaries between these two worlds fade away.”

Outsiderwear is supported by Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie, VSB Fonds, Rabobank Amsterdam, StimuleringsfondsCreatieve Industrie, Stichting DOEN, Prins Bernhard Cultuurf onds and Stichting Cordaan and works together with Outsider Art Galerie, Herenplaats, De Volksbond (GJ Scheurleerweg), Stichting ArtBRUUT / Makom inloophuis, De Witte Olifant, Bijzonder Amsterdams, TheatergroepLeBelle and De Meijboom.
