fIn Africa there is no such thing as art for art’s sake! This course examines traditional and contemporary African art objects and the roles and functions they fulfil within the communities that created them: objects that are not only vehicles to display wealth and status, but that are imbued with royal, ancestral and spiritual powers that help to ensure the future prosperity and heath of society. Sessions will include an in-depth exploration of figurative sculpture, masks and masquerade, royal and shrine art, and textiles.
