6. Expositions

This page has an overview of temporary art expositions in Europe which payed attention to creators of outsider environments. Since an art environment as such is not transportable, it cannot be exhibited in a museum. So, in the expositions listed below in general one will see photo's and video's of environments, maybe supplemented with some transportable items from these sites.

Because weblinks to temporary exhibitions are usually also temporary in nature, such referrals mostly could  not be activated in this overview. Some museums have a list of past exhibitions on their website.
