A painting by Jean Dubuffet, entitled Paysage aux Argus

An exhibition celebrating Jean Dubuffet, one of the most powerful and provocative voices in the post-war avant-garde.

Spanning more than four decades in the studio, this exhibition brings together powerful work by the French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985). This show is the first in the UK in more than 50 years, highlighting Dubuffet’s radicalism as he experimented with materials and aimed to create what he described as:

an art that is directly plugged into our current life, that immediately emanates from our real life and our real moods.’

Dubuffet was one of the first to champion ‘Art Brut’ – a phrase he coined, which literally translates as ‘raw art’. The exhibition explores his lifelong pursuit of authentic expression, featuring rarely exhibited pieces from international museums and private collections.
