Paris' Musee du Quai Branly Calls for African Artists


Focused on the approach of promoting contemporary creativity (especially photography), the “musée du quai Branly” has launched since 2008 an artistic creation program. Each year, this program will allow contemporary Non-European artists to present a project that offers a connection with the musée du quai Branly‘s mission in Paris. The museum is a cultural centre and place for research and education all rolled into one. The musée honours non occidental cultures and civilisations. Comprising a collection of some 300,000 objects, the permanent exhibition is organised into four geographical areas: Africa, Asia, the Americas and Oceania. The museum has made an open and dynamic choice for its slogan: “Where cultures meet in dialogue”. This slogan guides the work conducted by the museum in most of its areas of activity: cultural programming, the dissemination of knowledge and expertise, and sharing of this knowledge with cultures from where the collections originated, international cooperation and making the collections available to others.
