Henry Darger: The Room Revealed
On view through July 18, 2021
Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art
Chicago, Illinois

“Henry Darger: The Room Revealed” is a series of three six-week exhibitions that explore Chicago’s world-renowned outsider artist in collaboration with audiences and advisors. Due to growing concern about the fragility of the objects on view, Intuit will de-install the Room for conservation review. Before and during the de-installation, Intuit will engage audiences through these three successive exhibitions that serve as a guest-engagement laboratory to inform the Room’s future re-installation.
