The Paris Musée du Quai Branly was forced to close its doors during the early stages of the coronavirus epidemic and lockdown. This was disappointed for all those looking forward to seeing the Helena Rubinstein exhibition on primitive art.
Helena collected this art across her life with an eye for the things deemed ugly for others. The show brought 60 pieces of art and sculpture together to help visitors learn more and give their own view on their beauty.
Thankfully, the museum reopened on June 9th and visitors can still come and see these pieces. There will be some alterations to the experience as all visitors over the age of 11 must have facemasks and you can only see the pieces through a one-way system in limited numbers. Still, this is better than missing out completely.
All those that have craved the museum experience in lockdown will appreciate this opportunity to learn and discuss these pieces.
