The Alliance Française exhibition walls are resplendent with African Art from 8 Francophone African countries: The Ancient Kingdom of Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Gabon, and Mali.

Dates: Until April 28, 2013
Venue: Alliance Française, Ground Floor Gallery

The Arts of Africa constitute one of the most diverse legacies in the world. The objects on display are part of the commercial collection of Aberahaman Njingou and Mounchigam Arouna from West Cameroon.
The diversity of ritual and ceremonial masks on display highlight the importance of masks as mediators between the living world and the spiritual world in traditional African societies.
