Henry Darger toiled as a caretaker in Chicago until his uneventful death at the ripe age of 81. After his death, hundreds of watercolors and drawings, along with a completed book, were discovered in his apartment. Darger is the Hubert Hubert of outsider art. The 300 page book we have in store is a plunge into the fantastic, unsettling landscape of his imagination that will be sure to keep you awake at night.

If you're interested in seeing more of the wondrous landscapes artists can dream up, don't miss these two shows by a couple very talented Montreal artists:

Horror Vacui is a show at the McClure Gallery in which Simon Bossé, Kristin Eiriksdottir, Jim Holyoak and Patrick McEown combine their artwork in order to create an other-world of darkness, articulate brain wanderings, drawing and artistic fauna. Up till the 27th...

My Own Private Dante's Disneyland is Jacinthe Loranger's latest show. It is on till Monday at the Redbird Gallery. This show is extraodinary. Loranger has mounted a plural dimension of fun, rape, fantasy and food that leaves you stumbling, bumbling and confused. It is not to be missed.
