The Callan Park Gallery for self-taught and Outsider Art (STORAC) is based at Sydney College of the Arts, fronting directly onto Callan Park.
Self-taught and Outsider Art is art produced by people somehow excluded from the art game–not by choice, but by circumstance. The field is made up of a mixture of socially and culturally marginal figures; almost inevitably embracing or inhabiting unconventional or eccentric views or the world, usually undereducated and often with diagnosed mental health conditions.
Works of art and archival materials are at the core of STOARC. Recognising the importance of physical artefacts for study ad the often precarious future of work in the field, STOARC collects internationally significant art, concentrating especially on those artists not already represented in existing public collections.
