Launched in December 2010, Museum TV is a French channel dedicated to the world of art and museums. It broadcasts works of art by different artists around the world in high definition. Starting this June, the channel will be available on the Canal + Afrique package. On this occasion, a 100% African art program will be offered throughout the month of June.
Museum TV: African art within the reach of the general public
In a context where many events such as the Dakar Biennale and the Africa 2020 season have been postponed, the integration of Museum TV on the Canal + Africa bouquet, as well as its Special Africa program, represent a real godsend for the continent. They will allow the general public to (re)discover effortlessly African artists, their works, their careers, and the philosophy that surrounds their creations.
A rich and varied program
To furnish these 30 days, the management of Museum Tv has concocted a varied program:
