An unprecedented exhibition dedicated to the close links, past and present, forged between the Arab-Muslim world and sub-Saharan Africa. Treasures of Islam in Africa explores the processes by which Islam was appropriated and transmitted by African people.

Covering Morocco, Senegal, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, and others nations, the exhibition traces thirteen centuries of history through art, architecture, and rituals attested in more than 300 traditional and contemporary works, loaned from collections that are rarely exhibited in public.
