In 1945 French painter Jean Dubuffet said: “Art does not lie down on the bed that is made for it. It runs away as soon as one says its name: it loves to be incognito. Its best moments are when it forgets what it is called.” So it’s probably just as well he gave it a name, L’Art Brut. The concept was developed with Outsider Art, which is where the latest exhibition at Plymouth Arts Centre comes in.
In January, Plymouth Arts Centre and Marina Abramović will present six new live performances, based on ‘the preservation of performance art’, which will set the premise for the Marina’s institute – the Institute for Preservation of Performance Art.
The U:1 Studio artists in Plymouth are holding a Canapes and Fancy Garb event as A Collaborative Performance on What We Love and hate About the Art World! on Friday, December 11, at Plymouth Arts Centre between 6pm and 10pm.
