An exhibition featuring nearly twenty works from the final two bodies of work by Jean Dubuffet.  After twelve years of working on his Hourloupe cycle with a palette of primarily red, blue and black, in 1983 Dubuffet unleashed an extended color palette across the canvas, removing the borders and a representational reference point.  From February 1983 to February 1984, the artist painted the Mires, or “Test Patterns,” exclusively, meant to evoke in viewers a visceral reaction that might rid the mind of the teachings of culture and tradition so as to see with a naked eye. Dubuffet entitled his final series (painted in 1984) Non-Lieux, a legal term meaning neither guilty nor innocent—in effect, “no verdict.”  The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by curator Harmony Murphy.
