Exhibition: The Color Line

The Quai Branly Museum's new exhibition called "The Color Line" looks at a hot topic: black identity in Segregated America. This important retrospective pays tribute to all those African-American artists and thinkers who struggled to erase this discrimination through their art and their actions. There are nearly 150 years of artistic production represented here, from music, cinema, literature and painting, to photography and sculpture. They testify to the creative richness of black protest. They look back on the black activism of Booker T. Washington and Frederick Douglass, but also on the Harlem Renaissance of the early twentieth century and the indictment of the singer Billie Holiday. An unmissable event that is not far from Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.

Exhibition "The Color Line, African-American artists and Segregation", from 4th October 2016 to 15th January 2017.
Open Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday from 11a.m. to 7p.m., and Thursday to Saturday from 11a.m. to 9p.m.
