On 10 September 2015 in Paris, the association Détours des Mondes, specialised in tribal art, will organize a conference by François Neyt around the sidelines of the fair Parcours des Mondes.
With the theme of art from the Ivory Coast—rich with innumerable ethnicities, from the Sénoufo to the Baoule through the Gouro —a book signing with François Neyt presenting his latest book Trésors de Côte D’Ivoire will follow the conference.
François Neyt is a Benedictine monk, art historian and tribal art specialist—often presented as an anthropologist, philosopher, archaeologist and Africanist. He was born and grew up in Africa. He has notably published various works on the Hemba, the Luba, the Songye and arts around the Congo River. He is also Professor Emeritus at the Catholic University of Louvain and member of the Royal Academy of Overseas Sciences in Belgium.
