Art is a word


The structure of both the exhibition Kanak, l'Art est une parole and its catalogue is based on five “faces”, that is, the five symbols of the Kanak word, and on “reflections”, which trace the evolution of the Western perspective of the Kanak world.

Edited by Emmanuel Kasarhérou and Roger Boulay, the exhibition curators, with texts and in-depth descriptions by Alban Bensa, Patrice Godin, Anna Paini, Paul Matharan, Mario Mineo, Cécile Mouillard and Élise Patole-Edoumba.
