SPECIAL ISSUE #1 La fondation Beyeler : Visual Encounters
The first special issue of Tribal Art magazine, entirely dedicated to the exhibition Visual Encounters at the Beyeler Foundation (January 25 – May 24, 2009). This first Special Issue examines the major points of this exhibition through different visions and columns. Oliver Wick unveils the aesthetic principles that guided the spirit of the exhibition. An interview with Samuel Keller, director of the Foundation, reveals the little-known relationship that Ernst Beyeler had with tribal art early in his career. And the prominent dealers and collectors of tribal art Ana and Antonio Casanovas offer a connoisseur’s view of the objects that are amazing both in their quality and their pedigree.
