Art Brut: its Biennial, its market… (article on artprice.com)

08.04.2014
 [04/08/2014 09:08]
The Art Brut collection in Lausanne was the first of its kind and is today the largest collection of “Outsider Art” in the world, making Lausanne the de facto capital of Outsider Art.Lausanne museum decided to launch a series of Biennial shows, the first of which (Vehicles, 8 November 2013 - 27 April 2014) presents 200 carefully selected works from the museum’s collection of no less than 60,000 works by more than 400 artists. Generally speaking, the works of the world’s most famous “Outsider” artists, like Séraphine DE SENLIS, Louis SOUTTER, Gaston CHAISSAC and Adolf WÖLFLI , are still rare commodities at the major prestige auction sales and the market for Art Brut is still tiny compared with other segments of the Modern art market. Nevertheless, it is currently expanding at a rapid pace and is also becoming much more structured.

A poetic labyrinth by Armand Schulthess - an exhibition at the Centre Dürrenmatt Neuchâtel

30.03.2014
Neuchâtel's Dürrenmatt Center presents The Poetic Labyrinth of Armand Schulthess, its third and last exhibition in the labyrinth series.

In collaboration with the Collection de L’Art Brut, the Dürrenmatt Center decided to highlight the labyrinthine poetics of this extraordinary creator who worked outside the beaten path and was little recognized during his lifetime.

Neuchâtel's Dürrenmatt Center presents The Poetic Labyrinth of Armand Schulthess, its third and last exhibition in the labyrinth series.

In collaboration with the Collection de L’Art Brut, the Dürrenmatt Center decided to highlight the labyrinthine poetics of this extraordinary creator who worked outside the beaten path and was little recognized during his lifetime.

A federal employee, for many years Armand Schulthess (1901-1972) led a routine life, creating no ripples.  His superior qualified him as "retiring, silent and humble...[who] accomplishes his tasks conscientiously." Still and all, at the age of 50 this office clerk suddenly cut himself loose, abandoning his professional ties to the Department of Public Economy and leaving Bern to settle on a private property of his own in the Ticino—a chestnut grove in Auressio. Here, in a self-sustaining fashion, he lived out an exile that was as geographic as it was social and mental. For over twenty years, until his death in 1972,  he devoted himself heart and soul to carrying out a utopian project attesting to his artistic and philosophic obsessions.

Loan by the Collection de l'Art Brut for the "1900 - 1914" exhibition at the Swiss National Museum

28.03.2014
"1900 - 1914 Foray into happiness" is the title of the next exhibition at the Swiss National Museum (Zurich).

Up until the outbreak of the First World War, few suspected that a catastrophe was about to befall Europe and much of the rest of the world. It was an era that gave rise to the avant-garde, the breaking down of gender roles, ground­breaking inventions, increasing prosperity, investigations into the unconscious, and a misguided belief in lasting peace. Although ‘the new’ triggered a surge of euphoria, under the surface there were feelings of insecurity and fear.

The Collection de l'Art Brut is contributing to this exhibition with the loan of an artwork by Robert Gie.

The Halle Saint Pierre is putting on this show to commemorate Raw Vision's twenty-fifth anniversary. Based in London, this Anglo-Saxon review was launched in 1989; it is the first journal to defend atypical creation on an international scale.
Bringing together works by eighty creators from Europe, America, Africa, India and Japan, this show in Paris will treat viewers to various forms of expression that are deeply rooted in human imagination of heroic inspiration. The resulting form of expression takes on a great variety of shapes that are at times highly intimate and secret and, at other times, vastly expansive, public and epic.

Works by Johann Hauser, Aloïse Corbaz, Adolf Wölfli and Unica Zürn on loan from the Collection de l'Art Brut to the Djanogly Art Gallery/ University of Nottingham (UK)

The Collection de l'Art Brut takes pleasure in lending out several works by Hauser, Aloïse, Wölfli and Zürn, to be shown at the Djanogly Art Gallery (University of Nottingham) exhibition "Art in the Asylum - Creativity and the evolution of psychiatry".

The exhibition presents the first examination of the evolution of artistic activity in British psychiatric institutions from the early 1800s to the 1970s.
With over 100 loans from national and international archives, it traces the historical shift from invasive treatments of mental disorders to a more humane regime in which creativity played a significant role.

Uncovering fascinating stories, this historical overview provides insight into the diagnostic and therapeutic use of patient artwork, its influence on the development of humane psychiatric practice, and its wider recognition by artists associated with Art Brut and so-called Outsider Art.

Confirmation of the appointment of Sarah Lombardi as Director of the Collection de l’Art Brut

The City Council has appointed Sarah Lombardi, the current director ad interim of the Collection de l'Art Brut, as director of the institution from March 1, 2013. Ms. Lombardi's wide experience in the realm of art brut, her in-depth knowledge of the museum and the many new projects that she plans to launch promise to enable this worldwide unique institution to face the various stakes of tomorrow.

Our October 2012 invitation to tender for the position of director of the Collection de l'Art Brut attracted 30 applications. After carefully reviewing the application files, we requested a selection of candidates to submit a development project for the museum, including such facets as conservation, programming and showcasing, as well as the public welcome service and the site's further development. Thereupon, and with the approval of the Collection de l'Art Brut's Advisory Council, the City Council decided to accept the candidacy of Sarah Lombardi.

Born in 1972, Sarah Lombardi took a degree in the history of art at the University of Lausanne, which she went on to complete with research and curatorial studies in the realm of art brut, in Quebec. She is totally familiar with the Collection de l'Art Brut, having worked there since 2004 as a research assistant, curator and, finally, director ad interim since January 1, 2012. During all her years with the institution, she has coordinated various exhibitions, both here in Lausanne and abroad—including, notably, "Dubuffet and Art Brut" in 2005 in Lausanne and Düsseldorf, and "Japan" in 2008 in Vienna. Ms. Lombardi has directed and participated in numerous publications on the subject of art brut, and has been acting as full director of the museum for one year now.

Ms. Lombardi is highly acclaimed for her skills in the field, for her rallying and energetic personality and for her enthusiasm on behalf of art brut. As such, she has in mind to highlight the museum's riches (some 60,000 works) to their best advantage through large-size two-yearly thematic presentations. Such exhibitions will feature exclusively productions stemming from the museum's collections, thus reintroducing certain historic creators to the wide public. The underlying idea is to reassert the unique status of the Lausanne Collection de l'Art Brut's "parent collection" at a time when art brut is gaining ever greater international recognition.

Art Brut authors: Ataa Oko has passed away

09.12.2012
We are sad to announce the death of the African Art Brut creator Ataa Oko (born ca. 1919 in La, Ghana) on December 9, 2012. The Collection de l'Art Brut is in possession of 93 of his drawings.
Ataa Oko's work was featured at a solo show at the Collection de l'Art Brut in 2010, accompanied by an exhibition catalogue with a wealth of illustrations.
A selection of his drawings is currently on display in our Permanent Collection, on the 1st floor (above the ground floor) of the museum.
Works by this creator can also be seen at the Museum of Ethnography of Neuchâtel (the "MEN"), under the auspices of its current "Hors-champs" (Off-Screen) show running from 3 November 2012 thru 20 October 2013.

"Holocaust" by Pascal Verbena: a Major Donation to the Collection de l'Art Brut.

03.12.2012
Generously donated to the Collection de l’Art Brut, Holocaust, a piece by the French self-taught artist Pascal Verbena (Neuve Invention) born in Marseille in 1941, will go on display at the Collection de l'Art Brut from 22 November 2012, together with works from Rosemarie Koczÿ and Michel Nedjar.

Generously donated to the Collection de l’Art Brut, Holocaust, a piece by the French self-taught artist Pascal Verbena (Neuve Invention) born in Marseille in 1941, will go on display at the Collection de l'Art Brut from 22 November 2012, together with works from Rosemarie Koczÿ and Michel Nedjar.

Verbena executed his masterwork, which recounts the Shoa (the Hebrew term for the Holocaust), as a tribute to his grandfather, who was deported to the Fréjus (France) concentration camp.

This monumental work, over four meters long, is Verbena's largest creation to date. It belongs to his Reredos Series, assemblage sculptures mainly of salvaged driftwood and comprising a multitude of drawers and secret compartments. The Holocaust sculptures contain graveyard soil and the photos of persons considered to have disappeared. Completed in 1988, until now this piece was set up in a private apartment in New York.

Beginning in November 2012, the Collection de l'Art Brut will feature a newly designed exhibition layout for its permanent collection: the 1st floor's room will present some works on the thematic of the Holocaust with Verbena's masterpiece in the center, together with pieces by Rosemarie Kocsy (Neuve Invention) et de Michel Nedjar.

The India ink drawings on the walls are by Holocaust survivor Rosemarie Koczÿ; they belong to her I Am Weaving You a Shroud series that draws on the simple white shroud belonging to the Jewish burial rite. Living in the United States, the act of sending her drawings by dozens to the Collection de l'Art Brut was her way of offering a worthy and respectful burial to those whose death she had witnessed in the camps. Later, she went on to produce carved wood bas-reliefs.

To accompany these works, the Collection de l'Art Brut displays pieces by Michel Nedjar. Although many members of his family suffered under the Nazis during World War II, it was only in 1960 that the extent of their devastation really hit Michel Nedjar. At that point he began creating works out of cast-off cloth rags he picked up in the Goutte d'Or district of Paris, going on to create dolls that looked more like gargoyles or terrifying totems. Subsequently, he took up drawing on supports salvaged from, in the main, flea markets.
