Jean Dubuffet Exhibition update

Alongside the Outside In: National in October 2012, Pallant House Gallery will hold a major exhibition of paintings, drawings and sculptures by the influential French artist, Jean Dubuffet, who was known as the father of Art Brut.  This will be the first major review of his work since the mid-1960s and will feature key loans from the Tate, the National Gallery of Scotland and the Pompidou Centre, the Museum of Decorative Arts and Foundation Dubuffet in France.  The exhibition will focus on a particular moment in Dubuffet’s career when his Art Brut collection returned from the United States and the impact this had on his work.

The Dubuffet exhibition being displayed at the same time as the Outside In: National will provide a unique opportunity for the public to see the work of Dubuffet alongside work by artists who find it diffcult to access the art world. 

There will be a talk on Jean Dubuffet in our events programme by leading French curator Laurent Danchin at Pallant House Gallery.
