Art of Being Tuareg:
Sahara Nomads in a Modern World

October 29, 2006 to February 25, 2007
The “art” of being Tuareg, a semi-nomadic people of Niger, Mali, and Algeria, has fascinated travelers and scholars alike throughout history. The elegance and beauty of the Tuareg peoples—their dress and exquisite ornament, their large white riding camels, their refined song, speech, and dance—all have been subjects of rhapsodic descriptions that suggest a Tuareg “mystique.” Art of Being Tuareg, the first major U.S. exhibition on Tuareg art and culture, considers the history and evolution of these peoples by exploring silver jewelry, leather works including purses, bags, and saddles, and other highly decorated items crafted by them.

This traveling exhibition is organized by the Fowler Museum at UCLA and the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University. Major support was provided by C. Diane Christensen and Karen Christensen. Additional generous support to the Fowler Museum was provided by the Shirley and Ralph Shapiro Director’s Discretionary Fund; the Ethnic Arts Council of Los Angeles; Manus, the support group of the Fowler Museum; and the Yvonne Lenart Public Program Fund. Support to the Cantor Arts Center came from the Halperin Director’s Discretionary Fund, the Bill and Jean Lane Fund, and the Phyllis C. Wattis Program Fund. The exhibition was curated by Thomas K. Seligman and Kristyne Loughran. Media sponsor KJAZZ 88.1 FM.

The Fowler's collections comprise more than 150,000 art and ethnographic and 600,000 archaeological objects representing prehistoric, historic, and contemporary cultures of Africa, Native and Latin America, and Asia and the Pacific. From Yoruba beaded arts of Southern Nigeria, to pre-Columbian ceramic vessels of Peru, to elaborate batik textiles of Indonesia and the vibrant papier-mâché sculptures of Mexico, the Fowler's collections offer a comprehensive resource for exhibitions and scholarship central to the Museum's mandate.

"Spanning centuries of multicultural creativity, this exhibition is the kind of art experience that might restore your faith in the sad old human comedy. How nice that the installation is on long-term view."
