40th Anniversary of Collection De l’Art Brut

from Friday March 4

Featuring over 150 pieces exclusively from the Collection De l’Art Brut holdings, the exhibition will celebrate the origin of the Art Brut concept, as invented by French artist Jean Dubuffet. It will also celebrate the museum’s existence, instigated by Dubuffet’s donation of his collection to the City of Lausanne on February 26, 1976. The exhibition will feature many important works collected by Dubuffet between 1945, when Art Brut was fist conceived, and 1949. Artists include Adolf Wölfli, Aloïse, Walla and August Forestier
