Jean Dubuffet Opening Exhibition, Luxembourg
SGG is proud to be sponsoring the Jean Dubuffet Art Exhibition, curated by Valérie Cueto and taking place at the Zidoun & Bossuyt Gallery in Luxembourg from 28th September to 4th November 2017.
Jean Dubuffet was a French painter and sculptor (31 July 1901 – 12 May 1985). He is known for founding the art movement Art Brut, and for the collection of works—Collection de l'art brut—that this movement spawned.
Dubuffet’s works, which are innovative and provocative, are among those that made their mark on the second half of the 20th century. While the artist’s works created a scandal in France, the American public showed a lively interest in them. After several stays in the Sahara, Dubuffet moved to New York, and then returned to France, where he spent his time living in Paris and Vence.
Dubuffet enjoyed a prolific art career, both in France and in America, and was featured in many exhibitions throughout his lifetime.
Nearly fifty works, paintings and sculptures, made between 1944 and 1982, from international collections, will be displayed to the public for the first time in Luxembourg.The exhibition is a key event in Luxembourg, placed under the patronage of the Prime Minister, Minister of Culture, Xavier Bettel and the Mayor of Luxembourg City, Lydie Polfer.
