AUTOBIOGRAPHIC : Carlo Zinelli, Valerie Potter

12 Jan 2020–15 Mar 2020


'Autobiographic' explores the aesthetic diaries of two authors from the alternative history of 20th century art. Carlo Zinelli is the celebrated Italian image-maker, introduced to La Collection de l’Art Brut in 1963 by Professor Vittorino Andreoli, and championed by Andre Breton and Jean Dubuffet. Valerie Potter is a British illustrator and textile artist, whose idiosyncratic production of combined image and text was promoted by Monika Kinley and Roger Cardinal, the latter giving her work a significant platform in his seminal publication, Outsider Art (1972). This exhibition has been made possible in collaboration with La Fondazione Culturale Carlo ZInelli and Jennifer Lauren Gallery.
