Outsider Art : Paris
Hands down one of the things I miss most about living in Baltimore is the American Visionary Art Museum. It’s my favorite museum in the world for the mere fact that it’s anything but your typical museum, full of outsider art with amazing stories. Lucky for me, I’ve found two places in Paris to help fill my AVAM void. At the base of Sacre Coeur lies the French, more subtle version, of AVAM – Halle Saint Pierre. Then in the 10th, not far from Canal Saint Martin, one can find the charming little Galerie Impaire [translation: “the odd gallery”]. The gallery – an extension of Oakland, CA based Creative Growth – exhibits the artwork of artists with disabilities, self-taught artists and contemporary artists from around the world. Regularly new shows go up in Paris, with a celebratory opening “vernissage.” The newest show, Projects, opens tonight!
