MADISON, WI, (amnnews.com) — This exhibition features approximately sixty objects including masks, sculpture, ceramics, metalwork, and textiles from about twenty cultural groups across sub-Saharan Africa. Objects date from the eighteenth to early twentieth centuries. These objects have been chosen for their aesthetic qualities and how they illustrate ideas of performance, power, encounter, and design, just four of countless perspectives to regard the collection. Masks from cultural groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola, and Mozambique, as well as a pair of rare life-size wooden marionettes from Sukuma peoples in Tanzania exhibit the creativity African societies bring to performance. Such emblems of authority as leadership staffs and “power figures” from Songye peoples of the Democratic Republic of Congo demonstrate ideas of power. These dramatic figures were designed to embody spiritual and ancestral power to influence and protect individuals and communities. Another assortment of works from west and central Africa concern encounter and contact between Africa and the western world, through trade and colonialism. An eighteenth- to twentieth-century wood and bronze crucifix from the Kongo peoples of the Democratic Republic of Congo attests to the long and complex history of Christianity brought by the Portuguese at the end of the fifteenth century. A medley of personal arts such as pottery and textiles from west to central Africa demonstrate inventive and dynamic design, among which will be miniature, finely woven, covered baskets made by Tutsi artists in Rwanda during the twentieth century. By looking at objects relating to performance, power, encounter, and design in African art we find multiple ways to consider African art and the magnitude of the Bareiss Family Collection.

Bareiss Family Collection of African Art

Approximately 800 objects from various cultural groups from across sub-Saharan Africa make up the Bareiss Family Collection of African Art, which includes objects from Burkina Faso to Malawi, or from west to southeastern Africa. Collector Walter Bareiss, now 84, and his wife Molly have spent their lifetime collecting—artist’s books, Greek vases, Japanese woodcuts, Chinese ceramics, in addition to African art. Much of the African collection was formed during the 1970s and 1980s. His children carry on an interest in African art. This collection is on loan to the Elvehjem Museum of Art.read also: African art is Elvehjem 'niche' show
