COMING IN FUTURE MONTHLY ISSUES OF brutjournal
Above: In a region of Switzerland that is closely associated with the initial research about and exploration, decades ago, of art brut, a hitherto unknown cache of unusual garments and paintings was recently discovered in an old house. brutjournal will bring you an exclusive report, with photos and videos.
Above: The Canadian artist Aurora Robson is one of the leading advocates for and practitioners of a new way of art-making that is ecologically sustainable and calls attention to the natural environment’s current crisis moment. Robson uses plastic bottles and cast-off plastics that she “rescues from the waste stream” to make futuristic sculpture. We’ll visit her studio and learn about her philosophy, teaching, and working methods.
Above: Stone carvings by the Texas-based artist Ho Barron. brutjournal will exclusively publish excerpts from the travel journals and photos shot by two of the best-informed collectors in the U.S.A. of American outsider art, a couple of inveterate road trippers who are well known for their remarkable discoveries.
Above: Works by the American outsider artist Jesse Howard (1885-1983) on view in the Art Preserve of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. The new facility will open to the public on June 26, 2021. brutjournal will feature reports about the programming and extensive holdings of outsider art in this spacious, visible-storage venue, the first of its kind in the U.S. focusing on self-taught artists’ works.
