Description
Moving beyond the stereotype of African art as "primitive," these 33 artists from 14 countries demonstrate the continent's artistic versatility and modernist edge at the turn of the 21st century. Shown in nearly 100 illustrations, here are Calixte Dakpogan's parrot fashioned from found objects, Samuel Kane Kwei's custom-made wooden coffin shaped like an onion, Chéri Samba's Frida Kahlo–esque surrealist paintings, Rigobert Nimi's enchanting science-fiction constructions, and Malick Sidibé's joyous black and white photographs of dancers. The text includes an interview with collector Jean Pigozzi, along with an overview of contemporary African art and short biographies of the artists.
