You may not have heard of Jean Dubuffet until now, but he is one of the defining artists of the latter half of the 20th century.
The Fondation Beyeler is dedicating a large scale retrospective to this French painter and sculptor who had left his marks in works from Hockney to Haring. As part of this carefully curated exhibit, you will get to see Dubuffet’s rich and multi-layered body of work.
The more than 100 pieces create a unique visual universe which should not be missed. Jean Dubuffet had a particularly fascinating idea of landscape: He thought it could transform itself into a body, a face or an object. As you will see, the artist experimented with a variety of techniques and materials, from sand to butterfly wings.
Take part of this guided tour in English and add even more value to your museum visit. The Jean Dubuffet exhibit will be on through May 8, 2016.
