This solo show presents the work of Eugen Gabritschevsky (1893–1979), a Russian artist and geneticist who remains relatively little-known in the field of art brut ("outsider art"). The Collection de l'Art Brut in Lausanne holds important and highly diverse examples of his work.
The exhibition is co-produced by the three institutions that will take turns to host it. They are la maison rouge in Paris (July to September 2016), the Collection de l'Art Brut in Lausanne (November 2016 to February 2017), and the American Folk Art Museum in New York (March to August 2017).
A publication presents recent studies of this rich body of work, accompanied by numerous illustrations.
