Pour l’Amour du Groenland
La collection d’art populaire du Prince Consort de Danemark

Past: February 21 → April 14, 2013

This exhibition focuses on the richness of folk art Greenland where ornamentation, shape and colors reflect a genuine sense of beauty.

Over many years, the Prince Consort has been interested in folk art from Greenland and he has built up a great collection, which one third is exposed here.

Another contribution comes from the ethnographic collection of the National Museum, with fine examples of east-Greenland costumes richly decorated from the late 18th century.

Conferences, documentaries, concerts, literary evenings, dance, on the theme of Greenland yesterday and today, are organized during the exhibition.
