British-market-primitive-art Certain objects are today dubbed "primitive art." They are bought by people who value them. Others sell these objects for profit. Once this market exists, historians can employ themselves describing and interpreting this "primitive art." The objects gain pedigree, the collectors prestige, the historians jobs, and the dealers money. Collectors, experts, and dealers coexist and mutually support one another. They cannot be separated.

African-Dazzle When an exhibition of African art and design travels from the Hayward Gallery to the Pompidou Centre, and African designers win coveted space at Milan's Salone del Mobile, and Selfridges devotes a window display to Afro-chic, you know you are witnessing a trend. In Londonv (United Kingdom), the rising influence of Africa, not only in the worlds of art and fashion but also in interior design, has manifested itself in a series of events billed as Africa 05.

Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

Kongo figure, Liverpool MuseumLiverpool World Museum World Cultures Gallery

Kongo figure, Central Africa, 19th century

Opened on 29 April 2005. The World Cultures Gallery will take you on a journey around the globe. Drawing on our huge ethnographic collections, the gallery will introduce you to the peoples of the world. Their traditions, beliefs and religions will be explained through the objects and artefacts they created.

Manchester-Museum Some of the anthropology collections were obtained in the field by professional anthropologists. Frank Willett, Keeper of Ethnology and General Archaeology from 1950 - 1958, collected pottery, masks and ritual regalia in Nigeria in 1956 for the Museum. Some of these pottery types are no longer being made.

Oxford-Pitt Rivers The Museum displays archaeological and ethnographic objects from all parts of the world. It was founded in 1884 when General Pitt Rivers, an influential figure in the development of archaeology and evolutionary anthropology, gave his collection to the University. The General's founding gift contained more than 18,000 objects but there are now over half a million. Many were donated by early anthropologists and explorers.

Sainsbury Centre The Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection features work spanning 5,000 years of human creativity. Modern work by artists such as Henry Moore, John Davies, Alberto Giacometti and Francis Bacon sits alongside art from Africa, the Pacific, the Americas, Asia, Egypt, medieval Europe and the ancient Mediterranean. The Lisa Sainsbury Collection of Modern Pots includes work from Lucie Rie, Hans Coper and Rupert Spira.

Exeter Museum-Devon These galleries concentrate on the finest objects covering a 200 year period as well as a gallery for the display of ancient Mediterranean and Egyptian civilisations going back over 5,000 years, including a re-constructed Egyptian tomb. The display sections highlight many hundreds of items of the highest quality from each continent. For example, the range of items from Southwest Nigeria includes two beaded royal crowns and fans, masks associated with cult groups, 19th century wood carvings and cast bronze as well as everyday objects like cloth, stools, musical instruments and weapons.


The Royal Museum EdinburghRoyal-Museum-Edinburgh The colonial expansion in the third quarter of the 19th century helped increase its collections as officials and explorers sent back thousands of items from Africa, India, Far East, Australasia and the Americas, thus giving the museum its present international flavour.
