The gallery is the only Parisian one focusing solely on Art Brut; in 2014 they opened a second space in New-York. christian berst follows on from Harald Szeemann (« Quand les attitudes deviennent formes », 1969) who marked a turning point in art history. In line with his train of thoughts the gallery promotes Art Brut in every shape and form, without boundaries of any kind.
As such the gallery exhibits the traditional artists who “made” the movement and have entered institutions as well as their younger contemporaries. christian berst art brut presents a strong and dynamic programme throughout the year with 7 exhibitions besides its participation to international art fairs (FIAC, NADA New York et Miami, YIA Bruxelles, Dallas Art Fair…).
