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.
