Discover the history of over 300 headdresses from Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. You will follow a path punctuated with images and videos, allowing you to understand what these hats mean to each person and, thus, to have a unique window into cultural diversity.
In addition to a cultural journey, you will also have an artistic journey, since these pieces testify to exceptional know-how and great creativity. The artisans who made them combined fabrics, feathers, wood, hair, precious stones, and more to create true works of art. Reminding us of the thousand-and-one reasons why we have covered our heads since the beginning of time, the exhibition raises questions about notions that make up the universal nature of humankind.”
