Exhibition Art brut from Japan, another look, presented at the Collection Art brut de Lausanne (30 november 2018 - 28 april 2020).
Curated by Edward M. Gómez, a specialist in Japanese art and culture, and the senior editor of Raw Vision, the international magazine about Art Brut and Outsider Art, Art Brut from Japan, Another Look brings our understanding of contemporary Japanese creators in this field up to date.
As Gómez observes in the exhibition’s bilingual, French-and-English catalog, this revealing exhibition “draws upon a deeper understanding of the particular social and historical conditions, and of the critical context [...] in which Japanese Art Brut creators have produced their works.” This exhibition, he notes, has emerged out of all-new, independent relationships developed by the Collection de l’Art Brut with institutions, artists, collectors, and other sources both within and outside Japan.
As Sarah Lombardi, the museum’s director, also points out in the catalog, Art Brut from Japan, Another Look “broadens our vision of Japan’s culture by introducing us to works that are at once sophisticated, amusing, powerful, inventive, and dissident.”
