Réserve africaine

Until 15 March 2016, the Museum of Archaeology of the Town of Tournai is hosting an exhibition on the theme of Africa. “African Reserve” showcases major exhibits from the institution’s own African collection. The exhibition will be held in two rooms. In tandem with the exhibition, Catherine Lavocat and Marianne Nolard will return as artists-in-residence. The first room focusses on prehistory, and features 200,000 years of human occupation – from the oldest biface tools made from sandstone to the recent arrowheads of herdsmen and farmers. The theme of the second room is the Dogon area in Mali and it features ancient artisanal everyday objects, but also astonishing sculptures which deal with magic and the spirits.
