The Collection de l'Art Brut lends two works by Danish artist Ovartaci to the Cobra Museum for Modern Art, Amsterdam

Featuring more than 70 paintings, drawings and sculptures, the exhibition Becoming Ovartaci provides an introduction to the art and life of Danish artist Ovartaci and it is made in collaboration with the Museum Ovartaci in Aarhus, Denmark.

The two works in the Collection de l'Art Brut were acquired by Jean Dubuffet in the 1950s. Filedunder the name "Gonzales", or "Louis Marcussen", frequently used by the artist, they were identified by guest-curator Naja Rasmussen during the researching and curation of the exhibition Becoming Ovartaci at the Cobra Museum. 

In 2022, thirty-seven years after her death, Ovartaci is gaining major international acclaim as part of the 59th Biennale di Venezia exhibition The Milk of Dreams. Some even appointed Ovartaci as that year’s revelation and greatest find.
