    L'art partagé et l'art singulier

    November 9, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Dale and Lara finally got to a gallery walk on their last rainy Friday in Montpellier. We saw Yann Dumoget and his “peinture partagée” - Dale loved how you could recognize different places in his artwork (like the sea, a volcano, the desert), and then see how members of the public graffitied them. Then we went to the Musée d’art brut et d’art singulier (raw and outsider art) - it was filled with wondrous and creative paintings and sculpture - many of the artists were institutionalized with mental health issues, and were not initially recognized as artists for this reason. Dale noticed lots of cats, Lara loved the powerful colours and (sometimes playful, sometimes disquieting) creativity. We are posting a few photos here to “educate” (sorry, copyright reference...). Thank you in advance to the artists!Read more
