The artists of the gallery
Outsider Art since 1992
The term “singular”, Outsider for Anglo-Saxon countries, is said to have appeared at the “Les Singuliers de l’Art” event, organized in 1978 at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. This contemporary art movement brings together a number of self-taught creators who have voluntarily or did not establish a distance from official art. It is linked to a vast “post-art” movement, which has also been referred to in various ways: “art on the margins,” “raw art,” “open creation,” “out-of-standard art.” The singular artists claim a certain spontaneity in the face of the intellectualism of established artists.
