Aloïse Corbaz. La folie papivore

Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts
The exhibition takes us into a world that is rich in symbols, erotic, and sumptuously filled with flowers, animals, emperors, queens, and opera singers.
In the 1960s, MCBA became interested in the work of the exceptional outsider artist Aloïse (1886–1964), a native of Vaud who had been committed to the Cery asylum in 1918. The exhibition takes us into a world that is rich in symbols, erotic, and sumptuously filled with flowers, animals, emperors, queens, and opera singers. Included in the show are 8 notebooks (on display for the first time) that entered the Museum collections in 2016 thanks to the Jacqueline Porret-Forel Succession (gift in lieu of inheritance tax), covering every period of the artist’s output.

Curator: Catherine Lepdor.
