Jean Dubuffet : the last two years

Open All Close All

  • "An exhibition featuring nearly twenty works from the final two bodies of work by Jean Dubuffet, who died in 1985. In 1983 Dubuffet unleashed an extended color palette across the canvas, removing the borders and a representational reference point. From February 1983 to February 1984, the artist painted the Mires, or 'Test Patterns,' exclusively, meant to evoke in viewers a visceral reaction that might rid the mind of the teachings of culture and tradition so as to see with a naked eye. Dubuffet entitled his final series Non-Lieux, a legal term meaning neither guilty nor innocent - in effect, 'no verdict.'--Pace Gallery website."
