The Galerie Christian Berst first opened its doors in 2005. Since then, as Paris’s only specialist Art Brut gallery, it has worked tirelessly to promote creators of exceptional talent, exhibiting the “classic” names of Art Brut already featured in museums and collections and discovering the stars of the future.
The gallery, a short walk from the Pompidou Centre, holds regular exhibitions and is present at major international art fairs. It offers a wide range of publications as well as hosting numerous conferences, screenings, and other cultural events with the aim of initiating an ever wider audience into the mysteries of Art Brut.
