Discovering African Art

Eighteen objects, which represent African artists from different times, regions and ethnic groups, challenge common notions, and encourage a re-examination of African art and culture. The objects profiled range from early fifteenth century to the present, and offer a variety of media and techniques.

Each topic details two works, which allows students to compare and contrast representations and ideas from different regions.
