Africa Explores: 20th Century African Art

A publication to accompany the exhibition Africa Explores, held simultaneously at the Center for African Art and the New Museum for Contemporary Art, New York, 1991, and later travelling to other venues. Vogel’s exhibition sought to define categories of artistic practice on the African continent: Traditional Art, New Functional Art, Urban Art, International Art, and Extinct Art. The book’s chapters analyze the various forms of artistic expression in Africa since 1900 in terms of the political and social forces that shaped artistic development.
