Julie Mehretu in conversation with Camille Houzé

Join artist Julie Mehretu in conversation with Dubuffet scholar Camille Houze, as they discuss the legacy of Jean Dubuffet’s painting practice.

This talk will address the ways that abstraction and mark-making can be used as a means to express things for which we don’t have a language.

This has been programmed to coincide with Jean Dubuffet: Brutal Beauty, an exhibition celebrating French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985), one of the most singular and provocative voices in postwar modern art.

This is a live online event. Please book for more details. Information on how to join will be sent out in the week before the event.
