Nudités Insolites

Through November 2014, the Barbier-Mueller Museum of Geneva will be exhibiting Nudités Insolites, a selection of unique pieces from the ancient world to the twentieth century, originating from Africa, Asia, Oceania and the pre-Columbian Americas. Throughout the centuries, in cultures across the globe, we find that images of nudity are often synonymous with maternity, power, virility, mortality, sexuality, and even comedy. This exhibition offers visitors an aesthetic and intellectual experience that explores the attitudes we bear toward nudity and the meanings we ascribe to it.
