Located at Rue NG-34 in Ngor, northwest of Dakar, in Senegal, the Musée Boribana is the only museum in the country whose mission is centered upon modern African art.

It was founded and curated in 1997 by acclaimed anthropologist, Boubacar Koné and his award-winning actress wife, CCH Pounder.  Beginning at the grassroots level, the Musée Boribana has two purposes: to support Senegalese artists and showcase artists of the Africa Diaspora.  Accordingly, the institution features works of local artists as well as those throughout the world, including Guadeloupe, Haiti, Jamaica and the United States.
