Barbican: Wed 28 Apr—Wed 2 Jun 2021

This six-week course online evening course will look at the life and work of French artist Jean Dubuffet.
The course has been programmed to coincide our upcoming exhibition Jean Dubuffet: Brutal Beauty. Curator and Art Historian Camille Houzé, who leads this six-week course, has been working on the research for the exhibition.
Dubuffet (1901–1985) was one of the most provocative artists in postwar modern art – yet he has not had a major public exhibition in the UK in over 50 years. This course will explore his illustrious career and focus on why he came to rebel against conventional ideas of beauty, in favour of capturing everyday life in a more gritty, authentic way.

Above all, Oh de Laval is interested in human behaviour; the decisions we make, why we make them and how we feel as a result. These decisions are windows into our very personalities. Laval's debut solo exhibition, Wild Things Happen in Stillness, acts as a window into her character, her pleasures and her imaginings. Unit London Website >
