Instructor: 
Powell, Richard

Explores traditional, modern, and contemporary African art from the ever-shifting perspectives of prestige, power, and identity. The conceptual framework guiding this survey is both a broad introduction to the major artists and artworks of Africa across millennia, as well as probing specific questions about the changing definitions of African art, individual versus state identities in African art, and the impact of religion, colonization, and trade/commerce on African art.
