« L’Art Brut et la fièvre créatrice tardive » [Art Brut and the creative fervor late in life] - a lecture by Mali Genest
It is at a relatively late age—at times upon their retirement, when they have more time available—that many creators of Art Brut first get/got started in the field. Self-taught, these people are cut off from fashion or institutional art circles. Instead, they seek to fashion an entirely personal world that pays no heed whatsoever to outside opinions: theirs is a thoroughly unsociable, magic and even subversive world.
Ms. Genest's lecture will dwell on works by Ataa Oko, Emile Ratier, Marguerite Sirvins, and Helga Goetze.
