Beyond Aesthetics: Use, Abuse and Dissonance in African Art Traditions

Beyond Aesthetics is a passionate discussion of the role of identity, tradition, and originality in making , collecting, and exhibiting African art today. Soyinka considers objects that have stirred controversy, and he decries dogmatic efforts – whether colonial or religious – to suppress Africa’s artistic traditions. By turns poetic, provocative and humorous, Soyinka affirms the power of collecting to reclaim tradition. He urges African artists, filmmakers, collectors, and curators to engage with their aesthetic mand cultural histories.
