African and Caribbean Art

The Musée Dapper is a museum specializing in African art. Ever since it was opened in 1986, the Musée Dapper has been helping to bring the African arts to a broader audience by mounting numerous exhibitions, each rigorously researched and expertly installed. As a result, it has become one of the best places in Paris to see African sculpture at its finest. As well as promoting the arts of Africa, its remit has now been extended to cover all the other cultural aspects of the diaspora of the African Continent. The museum opened as an effort of the Olfert Dapper Foundation, and is named in honor of a Dutch humanist who in 1668 published an encyclopedic description of Africa. In addition to its ongoing series of art exhibitions, the museum sponsors dance, concerts, plays, children’s shows, and seminars.
