PANNEAUX DE PALANQUINS SANTAL
which will be presented throughout September at 6 rue Visconti - 75006 Paris.
A vernissage will be held on Thursday 1 September 2022 at 6 p.m.
This exhibition is a tribute to François Boulanger and Françoise Bouhière
Most of the pieces on display were from their personal collection. This included a superb set of musical instruments, including 600 sanza acquired by the Cité de la Musique Museum in Paris and the MIM Museum of Musical Instruments in Brussels. The pieces from their collection that we are exhibiting are complemented by pieces from Annick Cical's collection, and are the subject of a catalogue available at the gallery during the exhibition and for download here.
