NileGuide Expert Says:
Sonja Holverson, local expert, loves this museum for the beauty of the primitve art that comes from the souls of troubled people.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Watch for the exhibition schedules as they change often and works of artists from around the world are displayed.
- The notion of Art Brut (crude/raw art) was introduced around 1945 by French painter Jean Dubuffet. The term applies to pieces created by those who have not been influenced by other artists, people who have escaped cultural conditioning. The painters and sculptors whose work is exhibited in this museum are therefore outcasts (prisoners, psychiatric patients, etc.). The exhibition on offer is complemented by temporary ones, each more original, surprising, even more overwhelming than the next. Call ahead for more details.
