Parcours des Mondes is widely recognized as the world’s most important tribal art fair due to the quality and diversity of its participants. Since 2002, each year it has brought together some sixty galleries specializing in the arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas.
For art lovers from around the world, the Biennale des Antiquaires is a meeting place for over half a century and the epitome of the "art of French living".
Founded by Touria El Glaoui in 2013, 1-54 is the leading international art fair dedicated to contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora with annual editions in London, New York and Marrakech. Drawing reference to the fifty-four countries that constitute the African continent, 1-54 is a sustainable and dynamic platform that is engaged in contemporary dialogue and exchange.
At the Tribal Art Fair you can find objects from Oceania, Africa, Indonesia, South America, Tibet and The Philippines. The exhibition include jewellery, sculptures, textiles, masks, implements and furniture. All objects at the Fair will be judged by experts of that region.
AKAA proposes to highlight the diversity of the links that unite Africa with other regions of the world, both spiritual and cultural, commercial or ideological, and to examine their resonance in contemporary artistic creation. Our 2018 cultural programming will focus on this theme. The AKAA Meetings will dedicate a first day to the Muslim world, bringing together the cultures of Africa and the Middle East. We will then look to the West with a second day around Afro-descendant cultures of the Americas. During the last day we will focus on the economic and cultural links between Africa and Asia. Echoing this programming, we encourage participating galleries to play these openings in their artistic programming to open the dialogue from one continent to another within the AKAA fair.
