About the Museum

The Fondation Dapper is an institution fostering the cultures from Africa, the Caribbean and their diasporas.

Since 1986, the Fondation Dapper has designed and shown about 50 exhibitions, enabling various publics to discover or to rediscover masks, statuettes, insignia of dignity, etc. from the most important collections, including the foundation's collection itself.

For over 18 years, Dapper has also been actively involved in shedding the light on the cultural and art dynamics of an ever-changing Africa. Thus, in its former museographical space, the Fondation Dapper has regularly held group exhibitions or monographic exhibitions.

In 2017, the Fondation Dapper has become nomadic to focus on raising the awareness of a new range of public, including in Africa and in the Caribbean.

In line with its new orientations, the Fondation Dapper participates to the Dakar’s Biennials and has designed a major exhibition entitled “Africas, Artists of yesterday and today” hosted by the Fondation Clément in Martinique, showing ancient African arts for the first time in the Caribbean.
