Le Foyer de l’Art Brut: Jean Dubuffet and his search for artistic truth
As part of the first Reading Room series of events at Frieze Masters 2016, GalleriesNow.net co-founder Tristram Fetherstonhaugh and James Brett of The Museum of Everything talk about Jean Dubuffet’s radical Parisian salon Le Foyer de l’Art Brut, and the ways it inspired the artist on his lifetime journey of discovery.
The original Foyer attracted the attention of many of the best known artists and writers of that generation, including people like Joan Miró, Jean Cocteau, Tristan Tzara and André Breton - and the Gallery of Everything’s historical interpretation of the exhibition is part of Sir Norman Rosenthal’s Collections at Frieze Masters 2016.

Charles Saumarez Smith, Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Arts, at the breakfast launch
The Royal Academy of Arts today launched the Mayfair and St. James’s Map. The complimentary map highlights the area of Mayfair and St. James’s, one of the oldest and most important arts quarters in the world. From the south of St. James’s between Pall Mall and Piccadilly to the north of New Bond Street, the area is home to internationally renowned auction houses and leading art galleries as well as the Royal Academy of Arts.
The map has been produced in collaboration with GalleriesNow.net and features 145 art locations in total, including 139 commercial galleries, 4 auction houses, as well as the Royal Academy and The Photographers’ Gallery. Visitors to the area will be able to pick up a map from each of the listed venues and explore the vibrant breadth of art on display, from works by the Old Masters to today’s contemporary artists. The map will also be available to download from the RA website and GalleriesNow.net.
Charles Saumarez Smith, Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of Arts, said: “In the lead up to the Royal Academy’s 250th anniversary and the opening of the Elizabeth Line at Bond Street Station in 2018, we are delighted to be working with the galleries and auction houses in the area, to present the broad range of visual arts Mayfair and St James’s has to offer.”

About the Royal Academy of Arts
The Royal Academy of Arts was founded by King George III of England in 1768. It has a unique position in being an independent, privately funded institution led by eminent artists and architects whose purpose is to be a clear, strong voice for art and artists. Its public programmes promote the creation, enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.
The RA is undergoing a transformative redevelopment which will be completed in time for its 250th anniversary in 2018. Led by the internationally-acclaimed architect Sir David Chipperfield RA and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), the plans will link Burlington House on Piccadilly and Burlington Gardens for the first time, uniting and revitalising the two-acre site. The redevelopment will also reveal the elements that make the RA unique, sharing with the public the historic treasures in its Collection, the work of its Academicians and the RA Schools, alongside its world-class exhibitions programme.
