An unprecedented celebration of contemporary art from Africa brightens the city this weekend and continues through spring. The work of 33 photographers, painters, sculptors, video and installation artists who live and work in 14 nations — South Africa to Mali, the Ivory Coast to Madagascar and countries in between — is the subject of seven exhibitions in five Houston museums.

Extraordinary collaboration reveals 'African Art Now'

By PATRICIA C. JOHNSON (C) 2005 HoustonChronicle.comJan. 26, 2005, 8:04PM

 

CONTEMPORARY ARTS MUSEUM
DAVID HAMMONS, BAG LADY IN FLIGHT, 1982

The core is the collection of Swiss businessman Jean Pigozzi who began acquiring contemporary African art in 1989. African Art Now at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, is a stunning selection from Pigozzi's rich holdings of an estimated 6,000 works.

Four of the artists in the Pigozzi collection are also highlighted individually in other institutions. Romuald Hazoume, a native of Benin, exhibits sculpture at the Menil Collection; stunning photographs by J. D. 'Okhai Ojeikere of Nigeria are at the University of Houston's Blaffer Gallery; the art museum at Texas Southern University features paintings by Chéri Samba from the Congo; and his fellow countryman, Bodys Isek Kingelez, fills the lower gallery of the Contemporary Arts Museum with his meticulous constructions made from cardboard and other materials.

And there's more.

The CAM also presents Double Consciousness: Black Conceptual Art Since 1970. The group exhibit spotlights seminal African-American artists, Howardena Pindell and Glenn Ligon among them, as well as emerging contemporaries like Karyn Olivier.

Houston artist David Mcgee was invited by the Menil Collection to curate an exhibit from its holdings in the Image of the Black in Western Art collection. Titled Deep Wells and Reflecting Pools, the exhibit presents approximately 25 paintings, works on paper and objects dated from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century, that address issues of slavery, racism and stereotypes.

The extraordinary collaboration among the museums extends to a free celebration this weekend with simultaneous receptions 6-9 p.m. Friday and an open house noon-5 p.m. Saturday. Free shuttle service to the five museums will operate both days. Complementing the exhibits is a full schedule of demonstrations and gallery talks on Saturday, including a noon-5 p.m. demonstration of traditional and contemporary hair braiding at the Blaffer Gallery, a 4 p.m. gallery talk by curator Andre Magnin at the CAM, and a 5:30 p.m. lecture by Hazoume at the Eldorado Ballroom.
