Things I Like: In the Realms of the Unreal (Henry Darger) ⁞⁞⁞ Blog ⁞⁞⁞ Things I Like
I’ve been interested in Henry Darger’s work for a while now, but I never knew anything about who he was. After watching the 2004 documentary, In the Realms of the Unreal, his paintings have taken on a whole new meaning for me. The documentary does an amazing job (and you can stream it from Netflix) but if you don’t have the time to watch it, it’s worth reading through his Wikipedia page to get an idea of what an interesting man he was. Now I need to get to the American Folk Art Museum—they have a few Darger shows up until September 19.
