‘Magiciens de la Terre’ 1989

An exhibition that united the work of over a hundred artists and which, since only half would be described as Western, radically challenged the Western art system from within. ‘Magiciens de la Terre’ argued for the universality of the creative impulse and endeavoured to offer direct aesthetic experience of contemporary works of art made globally and presented on equal terms.

Here are selected images and details of the exhibition alongside other relevant materials and media. Also featured are texts and materials from our publication Making Art Global (Part 2): ‘Magiciens de la Terre’ 1989.
