“L’envol”

“An apt finale to the Red House’s high-flying 10-year run.”

The closing exhibition at collector Antoine de Galbert’s storied Maison Rouge, “L’Envol” (“The Flight”) brings together some 200 works of vernacular, tribal, folk, contemporary, and outsider art, each of which relates in some fashion to the idea of human flight. Pieces ranging from American visionary artist Charles August Albert Dellschau’s early twentieth-century plans for imaginary airships to Fabio Mauri’s sky-high wooden extension ladder on wheels, Macchina per fissare acquerelli (2007), provide an apt finale to the Red House’s high-flying ten-year run.
