barbier muellerBirds & Felines in Barcelona

27th April 2005 to 15th March 2006

Birds and felines often occurred in the daily life of Pre-Columbian civilizations and inhabited their legends in such a way that they are very often represented in works of art and objects from this period.

 These immortal pieces express the close and complex connections between men and animals in Pre-Columbia America. In an aesthetical approach, the exhibition presents to the visitor's curiosity and proposes to his thought various aspects of Pre-Columbian as well as other old civilizations, which also represent their familiar animals on daily and ritual objects.

barbier mueller-MasquesL'Homme et ses Masques à Genève

17th October 2005 to 15th March 2006

Thanks to the rich collections of the Barbier-Mueller Museum in Geneva and Barcelona, an exceptional selection of 125 masks from all around the world could have been gathered for the first time in Europe, illustrating 5000 years of history of art. The poet Michel Butor staged sensitively the initiation, shamanism, theater, carnival or protection masks which enter into dialogue with chosen words. Thus these faces of wood, fibers and iron come into life. They reassure or terrorize, their faces light up with a smile or freeze into a tense grimace.

 

African seats Barbier-MuellerAfrican seats barbier-mueller African Seats
15th November 2004 to Spring 2005

Seats constitute one of the most widespread forms of art in Africa. Whether they are destined for everyday use or for exceptional or official occasions, the incredible diversity of seats testifies to the existence of a variety of styles and aesthetic values.

Seating manners reveal the relations of power and domination at work within a cultural scheme that is based on hierarchy and social stratification: it is a privilege to sit.

And in the basement downstairs…

Art of Oceania, Indonesia and Africa

For the first time, portable altars (assin) are on display.
These metal works were made by the Fon of Dahomey (the modern Republic of Benin). The assin were used to bridge the divide between the living and the dead, and the latter were honoured by means of this intermediary. The benefactor and the craftsman decorated each assin with comprehensible symbols of the deceased.

Of the three remaining basement rooms, one is dedicated to Africa while the other two are dedicated to Oceania and Indonesia
