LOS ANGELES, CA. - This January, the Hammer Museum presents the West Coast debut of Dubuffet Drawings, 1935–1962, the first in-depth museum exhibition of works on paper by French artist Jean Dubuffet (1901–1985). Rejecting conventional notions of beauty and good taste, Dubuffet asserted that invention and creativity could only be found outside traditional cultural channels. Inspired by children’s drawings, graffiti, and the art of psychiatric patients, he emulated the immediacy of the untrained and untutored. He often turned to drawing, a medium in which he could indulge his passion for research and experimentation.
