This museum opened in 1986 in the Halle Saint-Pierre, a metallic structure typical of the 19th Century built at the foot of the Montmatre Hill. With 600 works of art, the collection assembled by Max Fourny is very representative of the 1970s naïve art. It is the only museum in Paris dedicated to this unique art form. To emphasize its specificity, temporary exhibitions focus on themes and art movements going beyond the academic norm.
I stopped by on June30,2006 and went in. Being a self-taught artist who is very interested in the art brut movement,I got excited about my luckof discovering this place. But whoever was running the place that day would not let me up to the exhibition space so I missed it. I did browse the street level bookstore but that was not compensation for missing the original art upstairs. With the langage barrier, I never figured out why it was closed.
