The show highlights four distinct phases in Zinelli's oeuvre and new scholarship, through a selection of fifty-five paintings (many displayed double-sided), audio recordings of Zinelli, a film, and images by Life magazine photographer John Phillips. The exhibition brings together artworks from the American Folk Art Museum and other private and public collections from the United States and abroad, notably the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, the Fondazione Culturale Carlo Zinelli, Verona, and the collection of Audrey B. Heckler, New York. Curated by Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Curator, Self-Taught Art and Art Brut. An exhibition brochure is available. The museum would like to thank the Collection de l'Art Brut, Lausanne, the Fondazione Culturale Carlo Zinelli and Comune Di San Giovanni Lupatoto, Verona, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Gordon W. Bailey, Edward V. Blanchard Jr., Andrea Cairone and the John and Annamaria Phillips Foundation, Cavin-Morris Gallery, Audrey B. Heckler, Robert A. Roth, Amr Shaker, and the relatives of Carlo Zinelli for their generous loans to and support of the exhibition. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=213949 American Folk Art Museum: Branch Gallery American Folk Art Museum: Branch Gallery
