Kevin House: The Roadside Museum of the Mind

July 6 - 27, 2024

Outsiders and Others, 716 East Hstings Street, Vancouver

July 6 from 6-8pm Opening reception

July 20 from 2-3pm Artist discussion

Outsiders and Others is excited to present The Roadside Museum of the Mind featuring new artworks by Kevin House. 

Kevin House is a self taught artist, writer, and musician currently based in Vancouver, B.C.

"I like to think of my practice as private investigative work in a sense. Working intuitively through a multitude of mediums to uncover some kind of mysterious narrative. A book about a book that never got written, an artist who destroyed all of his paintings, photographs of sculptures of cameras that are not exactly cameras, the last ticket booth, letters to and from a star, conundrumology, the Phantom Crutch Co., are some of the works on display. 

This latest work is a collection of sculptures, paintings, and photographs that I imagine discovering buried in an attic, flea market, or museum in the mind. The subconscious will do much of the work, I just have to pay attention and put thehours in."

Kevin's work has been exhibited at the New York Outsider Art Fair, as well as being included in the private collections of actor Malcolm McDowell, singer Norah Jones, director Bruce McDonald, writer Katherine Dunn, writer Tomothy Taylor, and artist Joe Coleman, to mention a few. 

He is also featured in the recently published book Outsider Art of Canada, has been featured on CBC radio, in Geist magazine, Globe and Mail, The Province, and Elle magazine.
