"The Encounter Between the East and West: Collection de l'Art Brut and Japanese Outsider Art" Exhibition
This event has ended.
This exhibition has been made possible by the collaboration between Collection de l'Art Brut in Switzerland and Borderless Art Museum NO-MA in Shiga.
Art Brut (Outsider Art) refers to artworks created by artists without formal education in art. These works come from the artists and their strong desire to create art, and are rarely influenced by trends. Therefore, these works of Art Brut reflect an "impulse of expression" that is fundamental to humanity.
In this exhibition, the Art Brut in Europe and America and outsider art in Japan meet. The exhibition offers an opportunity to feel the universal dream, freedom, and power of creative activity that goes beyond differences in cultural and historical contexts.
