Acquisitions 2012-2018 - June 8, 2018 through January 27, 2019



Our Acquisitions 2012-2018 show invites visitors to discover a selection of works that include several pieces added to the Collection de l'Art Brut holdings since Sarah Lombardi became the museum's director in 2012. The over 150 drawings, paintings, sculptures, textile pieces and photographs highlight the museum's dynamism.

Some works are being shown for the first time, while others have already appeared in various thematic or monographic shows held at the museum between 2012 and 2018. 

Bringing into play both the variety of the creations themselves and the highly diverse origins of their creators, this show reveals the museum acquisition policy's two main focus points. These are, on the one hand, to reinforce the existing bodies of works by such historic creators as Aloïse Corbaz, Philippe Dereux, Marguerite Burnat-Provins and Henri Salingardes and, on the other, to integrate works by new creators — the likes of Karl Beaudelaire–KXB7, Manuel Lanca Bonifacio, Charles Boussion, Gaël Dufrène, Davood Koochaki, Mehrdad Rashidi and Melvin Way — all of whom bear witness to the vitality of current Art Brut creativity.

This presentation also gratefully acknowledges the vital role that donors have played over the last seven years in enriching the Lausanne museum's holdings.
