PARIS, FRANCE.- The Réunion des Musées Nationaux, Paris, presents Indian Brazil - The Arts of the Amerindians of Brazil, on view through 27 June 2005. It is part of “Brazil-Brazils”, The Year of Brazil in France (March-December 2005). Sponsored in France by AREVA and supported by the Association Française d’Action Artistique/ French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Partners in Brazil: FIESP and Fundação Bienal de São Paulo.
Media partners: RFO, FIP, RFI, France 5, A Nous Paris, Le Parisien and Zurban, and supported by the Maison des Amériques latines.

Focusing on the identity of Brazilian Indians, this exhibition gives a broad view of the native cultures in Brazil from prehistoric times to the present day. Masks, feather finery, jewellery, weapons, statuettes, pottery, musical instruments… 350 particularly beautiful and significant works set in context in an exhibition that makes good use of installations, sound, photographs, videos, drawings, and various ethnographic documents.
Brazil numbers 220 Amerindian groups spread over almost its entire territory, a total of about 500,000 people, 60% of whom live in the tropical forest. The exhibition tries to show the extraordinary cultural diversity of these peoples, both in the past and in the present, through the latest research in anthropology and archaeology in Brazil.
