Patagonie: Images du Bout du Monde

Currently on view at the Musée du quai Branly, Patagonie: Images du bout du monde (Patagonia: Images from the End of the World) presents a diversity of representations, narratives and myths attached to the great southern tip of the Americas.  Departing from historical accounts and centuries-old, fantastic reports of the furthermost reaches of South America, the exhibition seeks to separate fact from fiction, providing a contemporary perspective on a land and group of indigenous cultures once obscured by fable. The objects on view, which include a marvelous group of rare photographs regarding Hain ceremonials, are drawn from the quai Branly's own collection as well as French and German private collections.
On view through May 13.
