The Weight of Ghosts: Raphaël Lonné, Adolf Wölfli, and Augustin Lesage
Speaker: Dr. Valerie Rousseau, independent curator and researcher
Raphaël Lonné, Adolf Wölfli, and Augustin Lesage are among the masters of art brut studied early on by the Compagnie de l’Art Brut and Jean Dubuffet. This talk emphasizes their creative process and ingenuity in reshaping elements of their histories—personal and collective—into a complex new visual world.
This series of talks examines art and artists represented in the exhibitions Jubilation|Rumination: Life, Real and Imagined and Compass: Folk Art in Four Directions from multiple perspectives.
