A fine Eastern Pende Panya-Gombe African mask. Coll.: David Norden
Parcours des Mondes is getting mature. The 4th edition of Kaos was the best ever. Most dealers showed only genuine pieces, or did fine thematic exhibitions ( Lobi, Burma, abstract masks, ...) This made people more confident to buy, and so I saw tens of red dots.
Also, in France, the new "defiscalisation" law that allow companies that expose art to the general public to deduce 0.35 % from their benefits, added to the good mood from the French buyers. So I saw French business captains like Louis Schweitzer (Renault) or Mr. Mrs.Bernard Arnault (LVMH) walking around with ... their body guards.
And they bought. I have heard that some pieces like a Hemba sold for 1,000,000 euros.
Also, this year the Americans came back on a buying trip.
There were more participants than ever with more than 50 dealers. The price level was strong, but so was the quality of the pieces on offer.
Very fine pieces on view, indeed, with dealers from France (Valluet, Monbrison, Dulon, Ratton-Hourde, Bovis, ..), England (Entwistle, Bacquart, Conru), Australia, Belgium (de Buck , Christiaens, Visser,, ...) , Canada ( Jacques Germain) , Spain (Arte Y Ritual, Giltsoff,...), Italy (Manfredi, Somare) , Switzerland ( Fröhlich ) and the USA (Pace, Tambaran, Dimonstein, ), etc...

Tribal Art Fair Amsterdam
28,29,30 and 31 October 2004
This will be the second Tribal Art Fair in Amsterdam organised by two Amsterdam dealers Finette Lemaire and Willem Zwiep. There will be around 15 mainly Dutch dealers who will show Tribal Art from Africa, Oceania and Asia. The fair is held in an impressive 18th century church and the contradiction of Tribal Art in the religious iconography makes this event very special.
The fair shows objects from many different areas and is not only interesting for collectors but also for people who are just started to be interested in tribal art.
28 October 18.00 – 21.00
29, 30 and 31 October, 11.00 – 18.00
