Exhibition: Henry Darger
The Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris (MAM), located a few minutes away from the Green Hotels Paris, features the works of American painter and writer Henry Darger (1892-1973). This representative of Outsider Art has spent his entire life in Chicago, Illinois, where he has, among other things, written a 15,000-page literary and pictorial novel, “The Realms of the Unreal”. This retrospective focuses on 45 works donated to the museum in 2012. Self-taught, Henry Darger long remained a marginal figure on the art scene. His works are recognizable through their realms mixing imaginary and unusual.

Late opening on Thursday until 10pm.
