Item description for Arts of Africa: The Contemporary Collection of Jean Pigozzi by Jean Pigozzi...
Nurtured by historic aesthetic roots, sub-Saharan African artists have continued to absorb and transform external influences in extraordinary ways. The Jean Pigozzi Collection, the best-endowed contemporary African art collection in the world, shows how the rich values, forms, and cultural history of Africa have been incorporated, even into new media. This catalog of the collection included in the Grimaldi Forum exhibition profiles the work of 30 leading artists-painters, photographers, sculptors, and video artists. The artists featured include Seydou Keéta, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Malick Sidibé, Moke, Chéri Samba, Romuald Hazoumé, and Bodys Isek Kingelez.
“Once I opened the book, I was not only impressed by the unique work being cataloged, but also the progressive layout… So smart! Really, really, lovely.” ~melbar
