Les Musées d’art et d’histoire de Genève, l’Office des Nations Unies et ART for The World présentent une exposition de l’artiste béninois Georges Adéagbo conçue en deux volets pour le Palais de Nations et la Maison Tavel. Premier artiste africain à recevoir le Grand Prix du Jury à la Biennale de Venise en 1999, son oeuvre révèle les affinités et les similitudes, parfois insoupçonnables, pouvant exister entre différentes cultures. Dans ces deux installations inédites, l’artiste met en relief la collection permanente présentée au sein de la plus ancienne demeure de Genève, ainsi que les archives de l’ONU conservées à la Bibliothèque du Palais des Nations.

 

The Museums of Art and History of Geneva, the United Nations Office and ART for The World are jointly presenting the work of Beninese artist, Georges Adéagbo, through two separate exhibitions at the Palace of Nations and the Maison Tavel. Adéagb is the first African artist ever to receive the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Biennale in 1999, and his art reveals the often surprising affinities and similarities that can exist between different cultures. In these two brand new installations, the artist highlights both the permanent collection on display at Geneva’s most ancient private residence and the archives held at the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) Library.
