Modernity and Primitivism
Visiting Monaco this Summer? This is an opportunity to visit the gallery De Jonckeere which together with Lucas Ratton present an original exhibition in which modern paintings and african art are exposed side by side. From July 19 to August 10 you will be able to question and admire the aesthetic correspondances common to modern and ancient african art. For example, a Keaka statuette from Nigeria is exhibited next to a Dubuffet's “Texturology”, a nod to the decisive encounter of Lucas Ratton's grand-uncle Charles Ratton with the painter and his primordial role in the definition of art brut. Opening on 19 July at 18h.
