Dream Traces. Australian Aboriginal Bark Paintings
September 17, 2010 – February 17, 2011
Musee d'Ethonographie de Geneve
The “Dream Traces” exhibition brings together the Musee d'Ethonographie de Geneve’s fascinating collection of bark paintings – 43 paintings gathered between 1955 and 2010 – and 30 artworks borrowed from other Swiss institutions in Basel, Neuchâtel and Môtiers. These works, which were collected on site in northern Australia, are presented through seven themes covering secular and sacred life, animals, spirits and myths as a better way of questioning the relationship between art, identity, politics and the market.
