This course takes a comparative historical approach to African arts, exploring the distinct art practices that emerged under British, French, and Portuguese colonial rule and as a part of postcolonial national projects. The course is organized thematically, addressing a number of major theoretical debates in African art history. Case studies in this course will allow students to encounter a wide geographical and historical range of practices, medias, networks and theoretical approaches, and to engage with a diverse array of African epistemologies and aesthetics, presenting complementary perspectives.
