This discussion will explore the theme of narrative seriality in self-taught art, with particular focus on works in which text and language intersect in innovative ways. It will give attention to artists Henry Darger, Malcolm McKesson, A.G. Rizzoli, and Adolf Wölfli—all of whom attempted to create magnum opuses by continuously building upon a single story.
