The Bourgogne Tribal Show is the first commercial and international tribal-art fair to be held in a countryside location. Set in idyllic rural surroundings, with a relaxed atmosphere that naturally lends itself to discovery, exchange and discussion, the Bourgogne Tribal Show offers a resolutely different experience.
The art dealers, collaborating in groups of two or three, share magnificent exhibition spaces where they present artworks from Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas, to an audience of experienced collectors and amateurs alike.
The Bourgogne Tribal Show is hosted at Besanceuil, just a few kilometres from Cluny, on the private estate of contemporary art dealer Bruno Mory. The farm buildings – dating from the 15th and late 18th centuries – have been magnificently restored to house exhibitions, while the contemporary sculpture park and views from the Clunisois hilltops provide the most remarkable surroundings for visitors.
EXHIBITION AT CLUNY ABBEY
As every year, Cluny Abbey welcomes a tribal-art exhibition for which the dealers of the Bourgogne Tribal Show will loan the majority of artworks. This year curated by Aurélien Gaborit – in charge of the African collections of the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac –, the exhibition broaches the theme of bestiary. The exhibition will run from 24th May to 24th June.
Everyday from 9.30 am to 6 pm (last entry 5.15 pm).
The Bourgogne Tribal Show offers the perfect occasion for a springtime break. For long walks in the fresh air through beautiful villages and farms: a way to discover Southern Burgundy’s cultural heritage – its castles, the town of Cluny and its Abbey, the Romanesque churches and the great wines.
