Like a K-Way from the 1980s, the ART ET MARGES MUSEUM turns itself inside out to unfold an expanse of colours and shapes that you never knew existed! At the bottom, a warning from Jean Dubuffet, the inventor of Art brut: “You will have to find another designation”. The letter dates from 1984. With this terminological marker in place, Art en marge began its search for art that grows on the edges. Since then, the association has become the ART ET MARGES MUSEUM. How did its collection develop, how have its ambitions evolved, and what about the whole field around it, filled with all the names born of the Dubuffetian ban? Some answers can be found in this exhibition, which will evolve throughout the year.
The ART ET MARGES MUSEUM takes you into its reserves, brings out works that taste had relegated there, serves you its new discoveries on a rotating tray and questions the margin with artists from the contemporary scene who resolutely ask us the question of the limits of Art brut. Oops! Don't call it Art brut, he said!
