The departmental museum of Asian arts in Nice offers its audience a unique exhibition, the first dedicated to the Naxi identity and dongba culture in Europe.
The Naxi are an ethnic minority living in southwestern China, at the junction of Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet Autonomous Region. An original society has developed in this crossroads of cultural, commercial and religious exchanges for centuries.
The exhibition presents the religious environment of the Naxi through the manuscripts, paintings, costumes and instruments still used today by the Dongba masters during ritual ceremonies. The event is also an opportunity to show the place of this tradition in contemporary creation with a selection of works by leading Naxi artists.
From pictographs to contemporary art to mythology and costumes, this ethnological and artistic exhibition is a real invitation to travel and takes us to the foot of the Himalayas, where the Naxi continue to live their traditions.
