Course Description

This course surveys the arts of Sub-Saharan Africa from the 12th century to the present day. It will situate works of art firmly in the history, aesthetics, values, and motivations of the cultures that created it. Students will discover that each culture has its own unique relationship with art and history. The course will also address the process of ambiguities of living and making art in global, post-colonial world. Students will gain not only a strong foundation of art historical knowledge but also how that knowledge affects our current interactions with African art through museum exhibitions and collections.
