ExhibitionTreasures of the Spirit
Treasures of the Spirit
Under the patronage of HE Ian Kemish, Australian Ambassador for Switzerland and Jean-Frederic Jauslin, Director of the Swiss Federal Office for Culture
This exhibition is unique in Switzerland in that it is exclusively dedicated to Australian Aboriginal art. Indeed, the Burkhardt-Felder Foundation Arts and Culture presents a part of its collection to the public in form of a voyage across Aboriginal Australia, introducing the visitor to the diversity and richness of Aboriginal artwork in Australia. Aboriginal art may look back on a continuous tradition of 60’000 years. The works of more than fifty artists are on show in the museum « La grange ». Being an annex of the Château d’Ivernois (1721), it was carefully renovated to create a mystical space to accommodate the Aboriginal art collection.
