Barbican Announces Jean Dubuffet Solo Exhibition

Barbican Centre, London

Sep 30, 2020 – Jan 17, 2021

The Barbican Centre in London announced its 2020 programme today, which includes a solo exhibition of works by Jean Dubuffet, one of the most powerful and provocative voices in the post-war avant-garde. Spanning more than four decades of the artist's practice, the exhibition will be on view in the Third Floor Art Gallery from September 30, 2020 – January 17, 2021. It is the UK's first exhibition dedicated to Dubuffet in nearly 50 years.

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.
