Constantine Petridis,  chair of the Department of the Arts of Africa and the Americas and curator of African art, Art Institute of Chicago

When considering the traditional or historical arts of sub-Saharan Africa, one notices a predilection for abstraction in the rendering of the human form that departs from nature. It is this particular characteristic that appears to have drawn Picasso and other members of the European artistic avant-garde to look at African art as a source of inspiration and innovation. Scholars of African art have attempted to understand the reasons behind these abstract preferences in Africa south of the Sahara. Some have proposed a relationship between art and landscape, others have emphasized the conceptual or ideological nature of most art in Africa. What is certain, however, is that meanings and qualities Picasso and his colleagues came to recognize and value in the works they first encountered in Paris in the early years of the twentieth century, rarely coincided with how artists, patrons and audiences had understood and experienced these same works in their original settings in Africa.

Activity free of charge first-come, first-served basis.
