Then and Now in West Africa
opening reception, Second Floor, Belk Library, 3 p.m.

Students enrolled in ARH 341 'Then and Now in West Africa' organize an art exhibition curated along the theme of the course and incorporate works from the collections at Elon and Guilford College. By juxtaposing so-called “traditional” and contemporary African art, the exhibition will consider cultural practices within certain ethnic groups and how these have informed contemporary artists’ styles, subject matter and conceptual framework. In so doing, the exhibition will explore “authentic” art and commodity, cross-cultural exchange, patronage, appropriation and the impact of Western expectations.
