Friends of Naive Art, you have landed at the right place. Whether a professional artist, a Sunday painter, a collector, a gallery operator, a researcher, an educator, a student or passerby, there is something new to stir your curiosity. A wind of another kind is blowing from the paintings of our featured artists. You will be hard pressed to discover how everyday life can become a philosophical quest.
Around 800 art works, more than 250 artists, 32 countries, 5 continents! Is there some serious thinking in this naive form of expression? Playfulness can rightly be expected, but subtle questioning of an era or society? Are there strange relationships to your own concerns and whereabouts? Dreams, empathy, desire to better the world and this strong urge to travel into foreign lands and minds are all there, ready to challenge you, as seen in this animation showcasing the actual Exhibition or our permanent collection
Come visit us!
While you can have a lot of fun exploring and personalizing the virtual Collection on this web site, to decipher the unusual and connect it with your personal mindscape, you must come face to face
with our astonishing array of visual experiments at the Museum itself.
