Descriptions du produit - Présentation de l'éditeur:
Depuis un siècle, des arts non européens sont entrés dans le patrimoine culturel occidental. Ce livre propose une démarche novatrice: à partir d'une étude pluridisciplinaire de la statuaire des lobi et des Dagara du Burkina Faso, présente une analyse critique sur la place de l'oeuvre «d'art africain» en général dans l 'esthétique classique occidentale. Bien qu'elle ait une dimension philosophique, la critique se nourrit de considérations anthropologiques. En somme. cet ouvrage est l'occasion d'une confrontation de deux expériences culturelles qui établit un nouveau regard sur les arts non européens; regard qui n'est pas sans conséquences pour l'histoire moderne de l'art en

Descriptions du produit - Présentation de l'éditeur.
Enchevêtrements de cordes, petits tas innommables, accumulations d'éléments hétéroclites qui subliment toute représentation figurative, tels sont les objets de divination africains présentés dans cet ouvrage. Ces figures de l'informe, faites de matériaux souvent périssables et incontrôlables, peuvent être perçues parfois comme repoussantes et étranges. Elles évoquent une esthétique de l'effroi que suscite le chaos, la crainte associée au désordre du monde. Ce catalogue invite à les regarder autrement, car, bien plus familières qu'on ne le suppose au premier abord, elles ne parlent pas d'autre chose que de la vie et des innombrables fils de l'existence, qui ne cessent de se nouer et de se défaire. Il ne sera donc pas question de rendre un quelconque hommage à une Afrique mystérieuse et fétichiste, mais d'honorer la créativité humaine et la variété des formes qu'elle sait emprunter et qui nous étonnent toujours et

Kilengi: African Art from the Bareiss Family Collection
Détails sur le produit: Relié: 419 pages - Editeur: University of Washington Press (1 juin 1999) - Langue: Anglais - ISBN-10: 0295978228 - ISBN-13: 978-0295978222 
From Library Journal: Kilengi is a Bantu term meaning "joy arising through beauty," a telling insight into the importance of art in Africa. This catalog in coffee-table format was produced to accompany a traveling exhibition of Walter Bareiss's African art collection, previously in Iowa City and now in Purchase, NY. The collection, although only recently assembled, is intriguing because of its high quality and because it focuses on East and South Africa, regions often overlooked. Roy's introduction incisively criticizes scholars' and collectors' overemphasis of West African art. His essay describing the major categories of objects represented in the collection is not innovative in approach but will be useful for the general reader. This book's greatest strength lies in both George Meister's exquisite photography, which highlights the visual power of the collected objects, and in Roy's extensively researched catalog entries. Overall, this is a visually stunning, very reasonably priced publication; highly recommended for any library with an interest in African art.AEugene C.

Descrizione libro: 
A comprehensive introduction to the vast range of tribal sculpture from Africa is presented in this photographic survey. Ashanti fertility dolls, Bambara dance headpieces, Bachokwe staff heads, and Bakuba boxes are included in 347 works from Senegal to the Congo regions, Mali to Sierra Leone. This book provides a tremendous opportunity for Africans and non-Africans alike to view the diversity, expressive quality, and sheer evocative power of African art, and to gain a better understanding of one of the great heritages of mankind. Warren Robbins presents the pieces from the perspective of two civilizations -- Africa and the West. Believing that the works are classical rather than primitive art, his sensitive analysis of the stylistic refinements of the various tribes past and present emphasizes the importance of preserving this art for posterity.

Langue: Anglais - ISBN-10: 0878466592 - ISBN-13: 978-0878466597
 
Book Description: How the "unique" look of African art captured the imagination of artists such as Picasso and Stieglitz is well known. But how do art aficionados today see African objects? And how does our view compare to the way in which these objects were seen in Africa? Presenting the William and Bertha Teel Collection for the first time, this book provides a chance to think about how our vision of such objects is shaped by the "ethnographic," "primitive," or "modern" labels that have been applied in the West, and to compare it to how those same works were viewed in their birthplace. Lavish, full-color illustrations of over 100 choice objects combine forces with essays by leading African art specialists Suzanne Preston Blier, Michael Kan, and Edmund B. Gaither, and object descriptions by the collector himself, to provide a thoughtful and visually stimulating examination of these important African forms--as well as of the dynamic relationship among their creators, their original cultural contexts, and the Western viewing public. Essays by Suzanne Preston Blier, Michael Kan and Edmund B.

From Library Journal
Associated with an exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, this book provides a survey of 100 visually spectacular objects from Africa. As befits current thinking, the catalog (and exhibition) surveys the entire continent, including ancient Egypt and Nubia and north and northwestern Africa as well as the sub-Saharan region. Each object is reproduced in color and accompanied by extensive catalog entries written by over 60 expert contributors. The catalog section is preceded by five essays contributed by major scholars in the field. The essays discuss the nature of African art and its appreciation. Gates's article on the ambivalence displayed by 20th-century Western appreciation and Suzanne Blier's essay on the myths and misconceptions surrounding African art are especially valuable contributions. Highly recommended for any library with an interest in African art.?Eugene C. Burt, Art Inst. of Seattle Lib.

Note Libraio 
Hardback with jacket, 120 illustrations, 100 in colour. Revealing the powers immanent in works that the West long regarded only as exotic or abstract, Constantine Petridis looks beneath the surface of the arts of the Luba, Songye, Chokwe and Luluwa peoples to find, literally embedded in sculpture, the forces that enable the spirit world to intervene in daily life. Ritual use of these objects is expected to ensure a healthy birth, successful hunt, or triumph over an enemy. Analysis of the scholarly record illuminates the changing visions of leadership and prestige that fostered the development of the majestic, elaborate figure styles long prized in the

Descrizione libro: I Punu, stanziati nella regione sud-occidentale del Gabon, fanno parte di un gruppo di popolazioni essenzialmente conosciute per le maschere bianche. Questi oggetti non hanno mai cessato di impressionare, dai collezionisti agli appassionati di arte africana, fino agli artisti occidentali dell'inizio del Novecento; Picasso, in particolare, ne possedeva una. Il volto ricoperto di argilla bianca, gli occhi leggermente a mandorla, la bocca dalle labbra rosse finemente contornate e l'acconciatura sofisticata composta di varie ciocche di capelli intrecciati, fanno parte delle caratteristiche stilistiche delle maschere. Gli autori studiano il contesto di uso rituale di questi importanti oggetti, che i Punu e le popolazioni loro collegate utilizzavano in occasione di danze chiamate, tra gli altri nomi, "mukuyi". Le maschere appartenevano al "bwiri", congregazione di soli uomini, e coloro che le portavano erano scelti esclusivamente tra gli iniziati. Costoro eseguivano danze acrobatiche su trampoli, il più delle volte in occasione di riti funerari e in onore degli antenati, incarnati dalle maschere. Questi ultimi assumevano, così, un ruolo di vigilanza allontanando le forze del male. Le danze esistono anche attualmente, ma in un contesto di festeggiamenti, senza rispettare più l'anonimato di chi le indossa. La ricerca delle tradizioni e delle loro correlazioni con il contesto della regione del Gabon meridionale, passa in rassegna altri oggetti, molto meno

Descrizione libro
Fin dai tempi della "scoperta" delle arti africane a opera di Braque e Picasso l'arte dei Fang è considerata una delle più emblematiche tra le arti dell'Africa nera. Ma la subitanea celebrità di alcune effigi ha portato, paradossalmente, a misconoscere le molteplici fonti ed espressioni dell'immaginario fang. Il presente volume analizza finalmente tutti i manufatti a carattere sociale, rituale o simbolico. Statuette o semplici teste connesse al culto degli antenati, maschere da danza dei vari riti, insegne di potere, copricapo e ornamenti, armi, strumenti musicali ornati, utensili della vita di tutti i giorni testimoniano, con i loro diversi materiali, una creatività estetica straordinariamente diversificata, in armonia con il variopinto universo di credenze e
