Synopsis: New York’s now-defunct Museum of Primitive Art opened its landmark exhibition Senufo: Sculpture from West Africa in February 1963. Under the directorship of art historian Robert Goldwater, the museum displayed together for the first time a stunning array of arts attributed to Senufo artists: face masks, helmet masks, and figurative sculptures, all from a region spanning the borders of present-day Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, and Mali. Now, more than 50 years later, this new book draws on archival, museum, and field-based data, including previously unpublished letters, photographs, and objects, to look back at that tour-de-force exhibition, and offers a fresh, expanded view of a dynamic region’s arts and identities. 

About the Author: Susan Elizabeth Gagliardi is assistant professor of art history at Emory University in Atlanta. She earned her PhD in art history from UCLA, and her current research is based on nearly two years of fieldwork in Senufo- and Mande-speaking communities of western Burkina Faso.

Book Description Die Senufo, ein in der nördlichen Elfenbeinküste, in Mali und Burkina Faso lebendes Volk, gründen ihren Glauben auf einen Schöpfungsmythos, wonach fünf Totem-Tiere am Anfang der Schöpfung standen: der Vogel, die Schildkröte, das Chamäleon, das Krokodil und die Schlange. In Maskentänzen und Riten wurde dieser Schöpfungsakt »wiederholt«. Seit den 1930er Jahren beschäftigen sich Forscher mit den Kultobjekten der Senufo und schon um 1900 wurden sie von Künstlern wie Pablo Picasso and Fernand Léger als Inspirationsquellen entdeckt. Dieser Band verfolgt die Kulturgeschichte, die Verschiedenheiten und Gemeinsamkeiten der »Senufo« sprechenden Ethnien. Etwa 160 Objekte, darunter Masken und andere Kultobjekte werden präsentiert und vor allem ihr kultureller Hintergrund erläutert. Außerdem wird ein kritischer Rückblick gegeben auf die Ausstellung »Senufo Sculpture from West Arfrica« des New Yorker »Museum of Primitive Art« von 1963, die damals von dem Kunsthistoriker der Moderne, Robert Goldwater, kuratiert wurde. (Text engl.) 24,5 x 28,5 cm, 272 S., 250 farb. teils ganzs. Abb., gepr. Leinen mit Schutzumschlag. Bookseller Inventory # 709700

Book Description Five Continents Editions, Italy, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. New York s now defunct Museum of Primitive Art (MPA) opened its landmark exhibition Senufo Sculpture from West Africa in February 1963. Under the directorship of modernist art historian Robert Goldwater, the MPA displayed together for the first time ever a stunning array of arts attributed to Senufo artists, patrons, and audiences. Exaggerated yet delicate face masks, composite yet integrated zoomorphic helmet masks, and geometric yet gentle figurative sculptures exemplify the MPA s vision of the Senufo style. In the book accompanying the exhibition, Goldwater described a cultural context for Senufo communities in a region spanning the borders of present-day Burkina Faso, Cote d Ivoire, and Mali. More than fifty years later, Gagliardi s Senufo draws on archival, museum, and field-based data, including previously unpublished letters, photographs, and objects, to look back at the MPA s tour de force. Senufo investigates the making of Senufoness since the late nineteenth century when the French government seized cities and captured political rivals as part of its colonization efforts in the region. The book explores a mid-twentieth-century convergence of Catholic missionaries, an art dealer; and an conoclastic movement in northern Cote d Ivoire that led to an exodus of iconic objects from Africa to Europe and North America. And it examines the presence and absence in communities identified as Senufo of poro, a great patron for the arts and an institution at the core of certain constructions of Senufo identity. Joining historical analysis with eye-catching sculptures, Senufo offers expanded views of a dynamic region s arts and identities. Bookseller Inventory # AAH9788874396665
