On 10 September 2015 in Paris, the association Détours des Mondes, specialised in tribal art, will organize a conference by François Neyt around the sidelines of the fair Parcours des Mondes.
With the theme of art from the Ivory Coast—rich with innumerable ethnicities, from the Sénoufo to the Baoule through the Gouro —a book signing with François Neyt presenting his latest book Trésors de Côte D’Ivoire will follow the conference.
François Neyt is a Benedictine monk, art historian and tribal art specialist—often presented as an anthropologist, philosopher, archaeologist and Africanist. He was born and grew up in Africa. He has notably published various works on the Hemba, the Luba, the Songye and arts around the Congo River. He is also Professor Emeritus at the Catholic University of Louvain and member of the Royal Academy of Overseas Sciences in Belgium.

Launched by a handful of Parisian dealers in 2001, the Parcours des mondes has, in less than fifteen years, succeeded in attracting the most important tribal art dealers from France and the rest of the world, and has re-established Paris as the center of the tribal art world.
Widely recognized as the most important international tribal art fair, in terms of the number of visitors it brings in, the quality of the works shown, the level of the exhibitions, the publications produced in association with it, and the diversity of its participants, Parcours des mondes celebrates its 14th anniversary this year from Tuesday September 8th through Sunday September 13th in the heart of Paris.
Some fifty dealers from Europe, the Americas, Asia, Australia and other parts of France join their colleagues with permanent galleries in the Beaux-Arts of SaintGermain-des-Prés.
Altogether 84 galleries with specialties in the arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas will be represented.

From 10 until 14 June, Brussels’ Sablons district is to host three different fairs at the same time: BRUNEAF (Brussels Non European Art Fair), BAAF (Brussels Ancient Art Fair), and AAB (Asian Art in Brussels). Around 100 international arts and antiques dealers, some of whom are the most prominent in their field, are to be gathered in Brussels for the events during this period.
The oldest fair, BRUNEAF, is celebrating its 25th edition. This fair, dedicated to African, Indonesian, and Oceanian art, is to host two events: an exhibition which is to display the best pieces sold at the fair over the past 25 years, and another event with the guest of honour, the Sindika Dokolo Foundation, from Luanda in Africa.
For its 13th edition, BAAF, the fair dedicated to archeology (mainly from Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Middle East, and Europe), has decided to focus on quality and aesthetics. They are doing this through a partnership with the IADAA, the International Association of Dealers in Ancient Art, which [.../...]See more

A block of earthy colours tucked away in a corner of the Grand Palais, the booth of the Galerie Arts d’Australie is irresistibly welcoming: the gallerist Stéphane Jacob welcomes visitors there to discover contemporary Aboriginal art. AMA invites you to discover a relatively unknown but fascinating universe.
S. J.: Ever since it was founded in 1996, the gallery has specialised in Australian arts, with a particular focus on contemporary Aboriginal works and those from the isles of the Torres Strait. I founded it when I returned to Australia, with the wish to make collections directed towards museums as well as private collectors. I contributed particularly to making the collections of Aboriginal art in the Musée des Confluences in Lyon. As a gallery, we especially aim to teach our spectators whilst trying to have a maximum number of well-informed assistants present to reply to questions from both [.../...]See more
