The 47th edition of the FIAC is postponed to 2021. See you next year at the Grand Palais Éphémère.

Our initial project

The gallery’s proposed installation will be design around four highlights. The presentation will feature an exceptional « letter to his mother » by Harald Stoffers that is over four meters long and flanked the works of two renowned figures of contemporary art brut : Carlo Zinelli and Luboš Plný. Additionally, a selection of art brut works from around the world will be displayed in the form of a panorama flanking both sides of this central installation, a visual reminder that this field has no formal, geographical, or historical limits.

The artists

The letters of Harald Stoffers, whose first monographic exhibition was hosted by the gallery in 2009—accompanied by a catalogue written by Michel Thévoz—have since been exhibited in prestigious institutions including the Mona (Australia), the Hamburger Kunsthalle (Berlin), the Dox Art Center (Prague) and the Maison Rouge (Paris).

Carlo Zinelli, whose works were exhibited at the 2013 Venice Biennale, was formally recognized by Breton, Dubuffet, Buzatti, and Moravia. His work represents a veritable formal revolution built on iteration, dislocation, atrophy, stylization, lack of perspective, variations in plan and scale, and the presence of text in the interstices that beats like a pulse.

Luboš Plný’s work has been exhibited by the gallery since 2009 and was acquired by the Pompidou in 2013, years before its inclusion as an official selection of the Venice Biennale in 2017. Several monographic exhibitions have also been organized in recent years including shows at the museums of contemporary art in Kobe and Hiroshima (Japan, 2012) and at the Dox Art Center in Prague (Czech Republic, 2017).
