    Mr. Ntphe - I am personally disappointed that you have (probably) considered this to be your last on this.  Yes, it is nearly futile addressing

Group Description

The African Art & Culture discussion group provides an open forum for sharing ideas, insights, questions and announcements regarding a broad range of African creative expressions from historical works originating within and among “traditional” cultures on the African continent to more recent and contemporary ‘tradition-based” objects and performances from Africa and throughout the increasingly global African cultural Diaspora.

Exploring traditional African cultural and aesthetic forms AND modern tradition-based works (with an eye toward the future), it is our goal to facilitate discussion of all content focusing upon African artistic production and expression as well as the dynamic contexts of history and migration through which the traditional forms have arisen and evolved. We encourage open, respectful discourse on and inquiry into 1) objects of African traditional material culture 2) the ceremonial, ritual, economic and day-to-day events from and for which these objects have historically been generated and 3) more recent and/or contemporary works (objects and performances) through which these tradition-based forms persist.

We seek to include all diverse interests, knowledge and curiosity of forum participants and to encourage thoughtful contributions and thought-provoking queries regarding African objects, visual and performance arts, ritual and aesthetic productions, at rest or in motion, from any point in time. While remaining open to a broad range of perspectives, disciplines and styles of analysis, we request that submissions be offered with the goal of illuminating an area of inquiry and respect at all times the varied perspectives of all participants and visitors.

The group is moderated and presented by Lee Rubinstein and RAND

Welcome!
