Paris Musée du Quai Branly devotes an exhibition to the inventory heritage of Kanak art across the world with Kanak Journals. The exhibition is delayed.

Kanak art fans are expected at Paris musée du Quai Branly to discover the latest exhibition of the museum, Kanak Journals. An exhibition returning on Roger Boulay’s work – collaborator at the Agence du Développement de la Culture kanake  (Kanak cultural development agency) between 1979 and 1998 and his work on the Inventaire du Patrimoine Kanak Dispersé (Dispersed Kanak Heritage Inventory – IPKD). The exhibition is delayed.

He is entrusted by Jean-Marie Tjibaou and his team this inventory mission and he will travel museums and public collections across the whole world to properly complete this inventory task. A genuinely titanic mission conducted in partnership with Musée du Quai Branly current president Emmanuel Kasarhérou. All in all, over 3,000 sketches and watercolors are part of this inventory.

This exhibition offers you, through a dialog between Roger Boulay’s original notebooks and works kept in the museum, to dive into a “catalogue adventure” to understand “the concrete reality and shed light on the stages, players and memory issues of this huge task”.
