“Artists & Patrons in Traditional African Cultures: African Sculpture from the Gary Schulze Collection” Queensborough Community College Art Gallery
May 15-September 1, 2005, Queensborough Community College Art Gallery, Bayside, Queens, NY
The Dengese statue is important as a royal figure and incredibly rare. The ivory leopard from Benin, which is a miniature version of the Queen’s leopards in the British Museum, may be the only one represented in a private collection. An almost identical leopard, in the New Orleans Museum of Art, is it’s only equal. The brass colonial pipe from Cameroon, depicting an early twentieth century German soldier, is one of the best examples of its genre.
Equally inventive are the metal-covered Malinke mask and the unusual Oubi/Grebo masks illustrated in the catalogue. Also included are several very rare brass Temne chiefs’ masks from Sierra Leone which have never been exhibited before.
The exhibition opens May 15, 2005 and closes September 30, 2005
