Opening of the Afropea Gallery


In 2023, the Royal Museum for Central Africa (AfricaMuseum) is turning 125 years old. The museum also reopened its doors 5 years ago after a renovation. For this occasion, many events took place. The museum concludes the 125/5 year programme  with the opening of Afropea, a Gallery that maps the African presence (from Sub-Saharan) in Belgium.

Afropea shows the place and role of Africans from sub-Saharan Africa and persons s of African descent in Belgium since the 16th century. Its name is a tribute to the album Adventures in Afropea 1 by the Belgian-Congolese group Zap Mama.

The Gallery opens to the public on Sunday, December 17, with works by the following artists: Aimé Ntakiyica, John K Cobra, Moke, Henri Logelain, Pierre Muanza and The (in)convenience Store, installation by Rachel Hansoul.

Two guides will be present in the Gallery to inform visitors about the flow and content of Afropea.
