Sacred or profane, masks and the stories behind them can be fascinating. Some sixty masks from the exceptional Barbier-Mueller collection in Geneva are on show at the Muse Jacquemart Andr. The pieces come from all the continents : Youll find funeral masks from China, Iran or South America, as well as sacred theatre masks from Tibet or Nepal, or masks from Japanese profane drama Some of these works, visible here for the first time, have been especially selected by the poet and novelist Michel Butor. Tickets cost 9.50 and 7 with discount.
