Nudité Insolite at the Barbier-Mueller Museum

23 May 2014 - 30 November 2014
A museum dedicated to tribal and Classical art, the Barbier-Mueller Museum is showcasing a new collection of works and objects around the theme of nudity.

Dating from ancient times to the 20th century, the works displayed invite viewers to examine the symbolism of the nude form, in contexts ranging from fertility totems to pieces that examine motherhood and sexuality. Diverse in medium and in region of origin, the works on display will include everything from funerary relics hailing from Madagascar and wooden tobacco mortars from the Democratic Republic of Congo to modern sculptures from the Western world. Other pieces include relics from the indigenous Americas and Oceania.
