SENUFO exhibition at the Fabre Museum: a unique milestone in France!

With an outstanding selection of 160 pieces on loan from some of the greatest public and private collections in Europe and North America, including masks, statues, objects, photographs, etc., reflecting a variety of techniques and styles, the Senufo: Art and Identity from Western Africa exhibition takes visitors into the heart of the native peoples of the poro and sandogo in northern Ivory Coast.

This exhibition is organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art, based on research by Susan Elizabeth Gagliardi, lecturer at Emory University in Atlanta. It will be exhibited at the Fabre Museum of Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole, as part of the French Regional and American Museum Exchange (FRAME) network, after having been on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Saint Louis Art Museum. Coming off a hugely successful appearance at the Quai Branly Museum in Paris, the exhibition is a perfect fit for the Fabre Museum, which has become a fixture in the mediterranean art circuit.
