Shona Art Gallery

Stone sculptures from Zimbabwe have been present on the international art scene for over 50 years and have influenced generations of artists far beyond their stylistic genre.

The artistic potential of this country is impressive. However, contemporary sculptors in their economically poor country have hardly any access to the international art market. The Shona Art Gallery in Brienz offers current Shona artists a platform in Switzerland.
