African Art and the Shape of Time
African Art and the Shape of Time explores how African art gives material form to diverse concepts of temporality, history, and memory. It complicates conventional views of African art by considering diverse modes for reckoning time and its philosophical, social, and religious significance. Docents will discuss the five themes that explore the multiplicity of time in Africa: The Beginning of Things, Embodied Time, Moving Through Time, Global Time, and NOW.
