The Collection de l'Art Brut at the Nuit des Images: "Jean Dubuffet and his relationship with photography"

In partnership with the Collection de l’ArtBrut, the Musée de l’Elysée is organizing a roundtable on Jean Dubuffet’s Albums photographiques, recently published in facsimile by 5 Continents Editions. In 1945, Dubuffet founded the “art brut” notion, defining it as “works made by people unscathed by artistic culture” and to reconsider the “art” concept. The highly diverse provenance of images in the first 10 albums (1945-1951)— reproductions of objects in institutional or private collections; reproductions commissioned by Dubuffet of works by identified authors; enlargements of photographs of tattoos obtained from the Paris Prefecture of Police; and 12 prints from Brassaï’s Graffiti series—reveal his wide range of interests. After the reactivation in 1962 of the Compagnie de l’Art Brut (dissolved in 1951), Dubuffet reorganized his earliest albums and increased his documentation. As for the archives of his own work, the photographs were numbered and listed in notebooks. These images help “shed some light on the art brut enterprise,” he said. They are intended “not to show art brut after defining it, but to look for where art brut is with a view to collecting documentation that could eventually define it.” 

Speakers:

  • Sarah Lombardi, art historian, director of the Collection de l’Art Brut since 2013 
  • Baptiste Brun, a senior lecturer in contemporary art at Rennes 2 University who has written a thesis on Jean Dubuffet and Art Brut 
  • Michel Thévoz, honorary professor at the University of Lausanne, was formerly curator at Lausanne’s Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts before becoming curator of the Collection de l’Art Brut since its foundation in 1976. 
  • Marc Donnadieu, curator in chief at the Musée de l’Elysée, he has coordinated several hangings of Jean Dubuffet’s work for LàM, the Lille Métropole Museum of Modern, Contemporary and Outsider Art
