Henri Michaux: The Other Side is a se­lected re­view of the six decades of vis­ual work by Henri Michaux (born 1899, Na­mur, Bel­gium; died 1984, Paris, France), an un­clas­si­fi­able fig­ure in 20th­cen­tury art and lit­er­a­ture, and a lead­ing cult fig­ure in the eyes of renowned artists such as Fran­cis Bacon or As­ger Jorn.

Start­ing with Michaux’s first ex­per­i­ments with draw­ing and gouache dur­ing the 1920s and 1930s, The Other

Side spans his mul­ti­ple stages of ex­per­i­men­ta­tion up un­til his last works on can­vas at the be­gin­ning of the 1980s. Or­ga­nized in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Michaux Archives in Paris, this ex­hi­bi­tion will present more than 200 works of art, in­clud­ing many works on pa­per never seen be­fore and archival ma­te­ri­als, along with im­por­tant hold­ings from pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions. Henri Michaux: The Other Side is the first sig­nif­i­cant ex­hi­bi­tion at a Guggen­heim in­sti­tu­tion on the work of this poet, writer and painter since the ret­ro­spec­tive or­gan­ised by the Solomon R. Guggen­heim Mu­seum in New York in 1978.
