World of feathers

The spectacular exhibition Feathers takes you all over the world, to see and understand how feathers are used: to adorn objects and clothing, to enhance one's status, or just to add a little extra color to existence.

The exhibition will be on view at Världskulturmuseet/The Museum of World Culture in Gothenburg from February 10 - August 19, 2018 and will then travel to The Museum of Ethnography in Stockholm, where it will be shown from October 6, 2018 - March 3, 2019.
