Nigerian Arts (N° 19373)

The Barbier-Mueller Museum has invited anthropologist Nigel Barley, former curator of the British Museum, to study the museum's Nigerian collection, the fruit of the personal and informed "eye" of collectors Josef Mueller and Jean Paul Barbier-Mueller for more than a hundred years.
Without claiming to cover exhaustively the cultural production of Nigeria over two millennia of history, the Barbier-Mueller collection is very rich in several aspects. It offers a sample of the production of the major cultural centers of this country by illuminating, in chronological continuity, archaeological pieces from Nok, Katsina and Sokoto, productions from Ife and the Kingdom of Benin, and Yoruba, ijo and igbo objects from the Cross River and the Benue Valley.
Because of their rarity, some pieces of the collection form "monuments" of African art. Others, because of their emblematic strength, are among its great "classics". The exhibition intends to present these objects, several of which are shown for the first time, by highlighting their aesthetic quality while explaining, with the help of the catalog, the ethnographic context of their production and use. Nigel Barley offers new angles of approach to approach, understand and perhaps even better appreciate the art of Nigeria.
