ART | Arthur Bispo do Rosário, Brazil. 13 August – Sept 30

This display at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum brings together over 80 artworks ranging from sculptures, hand-embroidered banners and garments, showcasing the variety and creativity of Arthur Bispo do Rosario (1909-1989), one of Brazil’s most recognised artists.

Admitted to a psychiatric hospital at the age of 29, Bispo’s creations were made in complete isolation from the art establishment. However his ‘outsider’ art has long been celebrated for its skill and imaginative approach to working with everyday, found materials. The work on show demonstrates his fascination for the reappropriation of objects such as buttons, bottles, paper, card and cutlery, which he manipulated to create elaborate sculptural pieces.

Venue: Rooms 17a and 18a @ Victoria and Albert Museum is located at Cromwell Road, London SW7 2RL

Admission free

Opening times: 10.00 to 17.45 daily /// 10.00 to 22.00 Fridays
