African Art: Building the Collection

African Art: Building the Collection Выставки Атланта

Atlanta’s High Museum of Art owns an incredible collection of African art which is still growing. It includes quite a number of interesting pieces reflecting various cultural, religious, social and economical aspects of life in different centuries and parts of this vast and mysterious continent.

With this collection, you can travel across Africa, take a look at the beliefs, troubles, and goals of its people. Put together, the exhibition narrates a long and more often than not difficult history of the continent, wrought with disaster, but also immensely beautiful and poetic.

The pieces from the ancient times to our days help create a picture that may never be truly complete but helps nevertheless build a linear narrative, a story of myth, struggle and hope. Some of what we see is truly peculiar to this continent, but there is a lot that we will recognize as universal.
