Original Poster for the ground-breaking show of outsider art at the Hayward Gallery in 1979. ‘In May 1977 the poet and filmmaker Victor Musgrove approached the Arts Council with the suggestion of mounting an exhibition of outsider art, or ‘what Dubuffet calls Art Brut’. Musgrove, who had recently helped artist Jean Dubuffet establish his museum dedicated to Art Brut in Lausanne, France, proposed ‘a large documented exhibition, including photographs and large objects, as well as paintings and drawings. The result – two years later – was an exhibition of over 400 works by 42 artists from France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, England and the USA. The exhibition was selected by Musgrove and Roger Cardinal, a professor at the University of Kent, and author of Outsider Art (1972).’

Condition: edges a little worn with some creasing and marks to corners. Some slight spotting and the remnants of Blue-tack to verso.
