Image 'N Magie

Image 'N Magie, now on view at the Château-Musée de Tournon, is the second in a series of collaborative exhibitions produced by the Musée du Quai Branly that intends to foster an intercultural dialogue transcending time and space. Curated by Yves Le Fur and Jean-Michel Geneste, this exhibition seeks to decipher codes embedded in magical imagery. Divided into three global regions  –  Oceania, Africa, and the Americas – Image 'N Magie highlights the talent and ingenuity of artists from many cultures and time periods through a selection of forty hitherto unseen works, including masks, shield, bark paintings, sculptures, rattles, and more, all sourced from the collection of the Musée du Quai Branly.
