Paris Museum Announces Tarzan Display to Battle Stereotypes

 - Jun 17, 2009
The Paris Museum has announced a Tarzan exhibition for the summer.

The Musée du Quai Branly is set to expose some of the more ludicrous misrepresentations of Africa in Western society through the unlikely juxtaposing of comic, TV and films of Tarzan.

Using traditional African tribal artifacts, the exhibit aims to unravel the myth of Tarzan, whose character was created in 1912 by American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs.

The Paris Museum Tarzan exhibition hopes to bring out a different side of the infamous ape-man and offer a closer look at the man behind the myth.
