for Westerners to fully understand the indigenous perspective given leading the way with her baule, african Art visual art traditions of the peoples of africa.
ART and MUSIC - Akwaaba Special West Africa Travel Art: In recent years it has become apparent to students of African Art that in order to understand the inherent complexities present in most African works of art, it is necessary to consider both the perspectives of the conventional Western assumptions and the indigenous perspective. This presents problems because it is difficult for Westerners to fully understand the indigenous perspective given the longstanding Western imperialistic involvement in Africa. In the traditional discipline of art history, the importance of African art has been long relegated to the role of catalyst or raw material for the creative genius of Western artists such as Pablo Picasso. However, with Susan Vogel leading the way with her Baule, African Art; Western Eyes , we are beginning to take steps toward a new look at African art - one which appreciates the methology in Western art history, but also considers the complexities of the visual art traditions of the peoples of Africa.

Photograph by Don Cole The only thing more vast than the elephant is the earth. They have also hunted it for its abundant meat, strong hide, hair, bone, and precious tusks. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that the elephant has nourished the African imagination. Its image is creatively transformed in African art and literature. The rich and enduring presence of the elephant in African art reflects as much about human society as about the animal itself. When elephant steps on trap, no more trap. The Image of the Elephant The image of the elephant appears on some of the most important ritual objects used in ancestor veneration, masquerades, and rites of passage. Yet it also adorns humble domestic objects (combs, food bowls, heddle pulleys) and commercial products (beer, detergent, and postage stamps). Sometimes the elephant is depicted in isolation, other times it is part of a complex scene. Elephant puppet-mask, sama kun. Bamana peoples, Mali. Length 73 cm. UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History.

  • To reach the National Museum of African Art (NMAfA) from Independence Avenue, one enters through the Enid Haupt Garden. Straight ahead, looming above formal knots of flowers, rise the neo-medieval turrets of the Smithsonian Castle; pansy baskets hanging from Victorian wrought-iron street lamps conduct museum-goers from the street to the green. On either side of this entrance stand handsome contemporary buildings of polished limestone and glass: the Sackler Gallery of Asian Art on the left, the NMAfA on the right. This highly organized entrance situates a visitor within a three-dimensional emblem of colonial history. Disciplining the view, the overdeterminedly faux-European castle, which recalls the Smithsonian Institution's foundational mimicry of Britain's Royal Geographic Society, presides over a strictly ordered architectonics, consigning the galleries enclosing imperially-acquired artifacts to the periphery of 'civilized' space. On the one hand, this entrance makes visitors complicit in a colonial vision of the world, a complicity increased by having to descend below ground in order to view exhibits at the NMAfA and the Sackler. On the other hand, experiencing colonial space is an excellent introduction to a recent show at the NMAfA, "Baule: African Art/Western Eyes." Curated by Susan M. Vogel and originating at Yale University, this is an exhibit

    African Beginnings
    The word Africa was used by the ancient Romans to refer to their colonial province in the area that is present-day Tunisia and eastern Algeria. Its possible derivations are the Latin word aprica , meaning "sunny", and the Greek word aphrike , meaning "without cold." Archeological finds suggest that Africa is the cradle of humankind. The earliest fossil remains of humans, however one defines human , have been found in eastern and southern Africa. For example, if being human is defined as bipedality ("walking upright"), then the remains found in Ethiopia in 1974 of a four-million-year-old apelike creature apply. If defined as "making tools" (tools from stones that were sharpened or flattened), then the fossilized remains unearthed in 1986 in Tanzania's Olduvai Gorge are particularly significant. About two million years old, they were those of Homo habilus , the first toolmaker. (Even more recent studies have led to the conclusion that humans first learned to fashion sophisticated tools in Africa, not in Europe, as many experts had thought. These tools, carved from the ribs of large mammals, include double-pointed blades with carved barbs and single points with ridges that could have been used for attachment to spear shafts. They were discovered in Zaire along its border with Uganda and are said to be between 75,000 to 90,000 years old.) If "using fire" defines being human, then the one-million-year-old remains found at Kenya's Lake Turkana of
