Pays-Bas : The Museum of Everything

le 22 avril 2016

[Kunsthal Rotterdam] The Kunsthal Rotterdam is proud to present The Museum of Everything, a major overview of international work from over a hundred alternative artists from the 19th, 20th and 21st century. Famous for its powerful and emotive installations, The Museum of Everything celebrates private and non-academic art-makers whose creations remain independent of art history and language.

The installation invites audiences to discover the mighty fairy-tale panoramas of Chicago janitor Henry Darger, the recycled kingdom of visionary Indian roads-engineer Nek Chand Saini, the towering visions of Chinese factory worker Guo Fengyi, and Sam Doyle, the African-American whose graphic visual histories inspired Jean-Michel Basquiat.

This monumental exhibition also includes some of the mid-20th century authors made famous by the artist Jean Dubuffet, such as Augustin Lesage, the miner and spiritualist, and the anonymous faces known as Les Barbus Müller. More recent discoveries include Romanian street collagist Ion Bîrlădeanu and Japanese wrestling fanatic Tomoyuki Shinki. There are artists from the Netherlands too, from the self-obsessed biographic illustrator Willem Van Genk, to emerging studio creators like Marianne Schipaanboord and Paulus de Groot. Throughout the space, these artworks are accompanied by short films and easy-to-read essays from internationally renowned artists, including David Byrne, Ed Ruscha, Marlene Dumas, John Baldessari, Grayson Perry and many more.
