Jean Dubuffet will be the focus of two concurrent exhibitions in Amsterdam opening July 1, 2017. Jean Dubuffet: The Deep End will present the entire collection of works by Dubuffet held by the Stedelijk Museum. Beginning with paintings and lithographs in the 1950's, and moving through the artist's shift to emphasis on paintings and sculptures in the 1960's, the exhibition is unified by the driving interrogation behind Dubuffet's artistic expression: "How can you capture thoughts that shoot off i

The Brooklyn Rail features Alana Shilling's review of Jean Dubuffet: Excursions en no man's space in the October issue. Here's an excerpt: Excursions is a potentially intoxicating experience. Artists are arguably in the business of forming fantastic visions, and Dubuffet has a talent for railing against aesthetic mores with the conviction of a revolutionary and the whimsy of a child. In these drawings, the tidy separation between art and life deliquesces into a thousand narratives. As we

The works here retain that inescapably French refinement but are also vital, spontaneous, yet looser than his early style. They confirm Dubuffet as a bridge between Surrealism – Miró, as well as graffiti art, was a key influence – and the post-1960s sensibility; in
ean Dubuffet (1901 – 1985) began his professional life as a wine merchant, but by age 41 he had devoted himself full-time to painting—his true passion, and one that had begun years earlier when he briefly attended the Académie Julian in Paris. After the French liberation, Dubuffet developed a “Surrealist desire” to seek inspiration from street artists, reclusive madmen, and other eccentrics, as well as from the art of children all over Europe. He called this work “l’art brut” or raw art; it posse
It was the 1980s, and Jean Dubuffet wanted to be something of an artistic bad boy again. He'd become France's most famous and critically adored artist—best known for messy, tactile paintings that read like expressive updates of cave drawings and tribal totems. By then, the artist had lost interest in his most controversial early works. "He told me that their vitality was only in the period of time where they were provocative," says Arne Glimcher, Pace Gallery founder and chairman. But he still h
