Arab World Institute - Tresors de l’islam en Afrique

From Dakar to Zanzibar, and from Timbuktu to Harar, the Arab World Institute (Institut du monde arabe) is highlighting African communities that have benefited from thirteen centuries of spiritual and cultural exchange with the Maghrib and the Middle East. Focusing on archaeology, architecture, immaterial heritage, and contemporary art, this unprecedented exhibition brings together around 300 multidisciplinary works in an exhibition space of 1,100 m2 in order to highlight the cultural and artistic richness of the Islamic communities in sub-Saharan Africa.
The exhibition will be on view until July 30, 2017
