Opening: “Jean Dubuffet: Anticultural Positions” at Acquavella Galleries
Presenting early works in painting and sculpture by renowned French artist Jean Dubuffet, this compelling exhibition (organized by art historian Mark Rosenthal) focuses on the artist’s development of his signature Art Brut style, which was inspired by children’s drawings and the art of the mentally ill (what we now call Outsider
Art.) Made between 1943 and 1959, the expressive works in the show, which are accompanied by a catalogue published by Rizzoli, include major loans from museums and private collections.
Acquavella Galleries, 18 East 79 Street, New York, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
