Timothy Taylor is honoured to present an exhibition of Jean Dubuffet’s late works. The exhibition maintains the gallery’s interest in late-period European Modernism, and expands upon its programme that includes Antoni Tàpies, Hans Hartung, Serge Poliakoff and Simon Hantaï.
The exhibition brings together key examples of painting, sculpture and works on paper, including L’Hourloupe cycle works of the late 1960s, significant examples from the Théâtres de mémoire of the 1970s, as well as remarkable works from thePsycho-sites, Mires and Non-Lieux series of the 1980s.
Well-known for founding Art Brut – art produced outside of the confines of academic (accepted) art – Dubuffet championed, throughout his life, the need to continually question the established conditions of art, culture and society. He consistently challenged the canon and convention, and for this reason, Dubuffet’s work and ideas remain compelling and relevant.
