From the fifth millennium BC to the present day, it evokes the roads, fluvial, land or sea that contributed to the circulation and contacts of men, materials and works. Engraved tanks from the Wadi Djerat of the Sahara to the Chinese porcelains of Madagascar, cults and rituals of South America to the contemporary works of the Nigerian Yinka Shonibare, this exhibition portrays a continent in the heart of history.
