The Agama gallery presents, from October 7 to November 19, the exhibition “Heritage and tradition”, in Toulouse. Dedicated to the Yoruba civilization, it will bring together a large selection of art objects from West Africa, from the archaeological origins of Nok art to the current masks of the Gèlèdé society.
The public will be able to appreciate the aesthetic heritage of Nigerian Nok statuary (- 1,000 BC / + 1,000 AD) which continues in the past and current ritual traditions of the Yorubas. T he Ibéji statuettes, celebrating the cult of twins, and the dance masks of the Gèlédé society, from Benin and Nigeria, will be particularly honoured.
This exhibition is also an opportunity for Guénaël Fassier to discover the spaces of the gallery transformed during the summer. After 11 years of presence in the Carmes district in Toulouse, as an event, the gallery will now be open all year round, from Wednesday to Saturday and by appointment. Alain and Guénaël Fassier will offer exhibitions of primitive art and contemporary art.
