“Drawing as (the practice of) ethnography” is a new exhibition at the Musée de l’Hospice Saint-Roch which showcases the work of Nicolas Garnier, anthropologist and artist based at the University of Papua New Guinea. The exhibition, curated by Garnier, is organised thematically around “Masculinities in Melanesia” and features around 100 of his original illustrations and 70 of his field notebooks, displayed alongside re-working of the Museum’s permanent collection of ethnographic objects from Papua New Guinea. Some of the illustrations on display are reproduced in Garnier’s stunning book Motifs d’Océanie, which won the International Tribal Art Book Prize in 2012. This exhibition will run from late February to end of December 2013.
