This January, the Hammer Museum will be presenting the exhibit Dubuffet Drawings! This exhibit brings together close to one hundred works on paper from the Jean Dubuffet's most innovative years.

Dubuffet was a leading French artist of the twentieth century. He eschewed traditional notions of beauty in art in favor of what he perceived as more authentic forms of expression, inspired by graffiti, children’s drawings, and the creations of psychiatric patients. This is the first in-depth museum exhibition of Dubuffet’s drawings. He applied his radical approach to subjects ranging from views of Paris and its metro to nudes, portraits of writers, majestic beards, and scenes from the Sahara desert. His art has been influential on later generations of artists up to today.

'Dubuffet Drawings, 1935-1962' is organized by the Morgan Library & Museum, New York. The exhibition is curated by Isabelle Dervaux, Acquavella Curator of Modern and Contemporary Drawings at the Morgan Library & Museum. The Hammer’s presentation is curated by Connie Butler, chief curator, with Emily Gonzalez-Jarrett, curatorial associate.
