HONORARY PRESIDENTS
SHARON & SAM SINGER
Sharon and Sam Singer are Californian tribal-art collectors, focusing on the Pacific, Himalayas and Indonesia. Both grew up in academic households and had the good fortune from early on to meet scholars, see traveling exhibitions and learn from returning Peace Corps members who brought back exotic artworks. This gave them an early interest in unusual and different arts and cultures. Their 20+ years of passion for collecting art together is enhanced by their company’s work in the fields of politics, advertising and public relations communications.
THE BOURGOGNE TRIBAL SHOW
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 DEALERS
While tribal art remains firmly at the heart of the fair, the Bourgogne Tribal Show is, more than ever, open to other artistic fields: contemporary and modern arts, Chinese, Indian and Japanese classical arts, classical and Egyptian antiques, Baroque and medieval European sculpture.
WHO ARE THE 2019 DEALERS?
THE EXHIBITORS
The Bourgogne Tribal Show invites visitors to discover the diverse array of actors involved in the tribal-arts world. Specialists, from pedestals makers to professional restorers to insurers – all those involved in the promotion of the art on display – will present the varied aspects of their work.

BESANCEUIL
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 an exhibition for which the dealers of the Bourgogne Tribal Show will loan the majority of artworks. The exhibition will run from 31st May to 28th July. The contemporary artist Coco Fronsac will be this year’s curator and will explore the theme of IDOLS.
Everyday from 9.30 am to 6 pm (last entry 5.15 pm).
