At a time when the links between the Arab world and sub-Saharan Africa are flourishing, the IMA will be devoting a major exhibition (in the spring of 2017) to the cultural, spiritual, and commercial exchanges that developed between the north and south of the Sahara, from the eighth century to the present day.
From Dakar to Zanzibar, and from Timbuktu to Kinshasa, visitors will be able to discover culturally diverse societies whose artistic and intellectual creativity reflects these influences.
More than 200 works from collections that are rarely exhibited in France—relating to archaeology, manuscripts, sculptures, masks, contemporary art, craftsmanship, architecture, and immaterial heritage—will attest to the richness and multiplicity of the relations between these cultures.
As a complement to the ‘From Tombouctou to Zanzibar, the Arab World and Africa’ exhibition, there will be a diverse programme of concerts, shows, conferences, film cycles, and educational workshops that will highlight all the dynamism of this multicultural and effervescent continent.

Each quarter, the Arab World Economic Forums are attended by around a hundred prominent figures (business leaders, ministers, ambassadors, international organisations, etc.) who discuss major contemporary economic issues.
These exclusive events, which can only be attended upon invitation, enable the invitees to gain a better understanding of the commercial aspects of the Arab world and give them exclusive access to strategic actors through networking.
