Art buffs listen up, the conversation is about to begin.

Speakeasy cinema, one of Melbourne’s many outlandish art houses that prides itself on showing the most unlikely of films, is playing “Turning the Art World Inside Out” by Jack Cocker this month.

Focusing on the prominence of outsider art after the success of shows in Venice, London and Paris,some of the most well-respected curators and activists come together to look at why so-called outsider art has gone from being one of the most overlooked art-forms of the late 20th century, to one of the most essential of the 21st century, and what this compelling alternative art universe is all about.
