An exhibition of paintings and sculptures by French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901–1985). Highlighting the varied exploration of subjects and materials in the artist’s career, the exhibition demonstrates the artist’s non-conformist attitude and boundless capacity for invention and experimentation.
One of the most important artists of the twentieth century, Dubuffet sought to create work which shunned traditional notions of beauty and favoured immediate forms of expression. He coined the term ‘Art Brut’ to describe the artistic expression that informed his own work, that of children and the mentally ill, believing that their innocent or untutored outlook gave them the most direct access to their emotions.
