ART 211 - Expressive Arts of Africa


Explores the symbolic and aesthetic representations, implicitly understood and explicitly expressed by selected African peoples in cultural communication. The concepts discussed will center around the relationship between art, ritual, and symbols in cultural expression. The focus is the expressive cultures of sub-Saharan Africa as communicated mainly in the sculpture of the region. The aim is to read culture through art and to understand how Africa’s visual arts constitute the cultural encyclopedia of specific African groups.
