Jean Dubuffet. Mayor Retrospective at Fondation Beyeler (VIDEO)

Jean Dubuffet - Metamorphoses of Landscape at Fondation Beyeler in Riehen (Basel, Switzerland) is a comprehensive retrospective of the multifaceted oeuvre of the French artist Jean Dubuffet. The exhibition runs until 8 May 2016 and features over 100 works of the painter and sculpture, who is also known for founding the art movement Art Brut. Dubuffet's influence can still be felt today in contemporary art and street art, for example in the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Ugo Rondinone.

The exhibition at Fondation Beyeler focuses on Jean Dubuffet's idea of landscape, which in his hands can transform itself into a body, a face or an object. Portraits, female nudes and still lives turn into vibrant landscapes.
