AWS 2330 Arts of Africa


This course examines the arts of Western and Sub-Saharan Africa, from its earliest moments to the modern era. We will study expressive wooden sculptures, fine golden objects, elaborate textiles, and colorful wall paintings, locating them in their social and ritual contexts. As we explore the diversity of African art, we will also examine its transformation in New World contexts such as Cuba, Haiti, and Brazil. Using the Ben Shahn Gallery’s Joan and Gordon Tobias Collection of African Art, we will have direct experience with African objects. This course is Writing Intensive.
