Literatuuropgave : p. 137-145 Disquieting questions about the relationship between 'civilized' viewers and 'primitive' art objects. Arguments for reconsideration of such notions as the anonymity of primitive artists, the universality of aesthetic canons, the privileged position of literate civilizations, and the value of preserving culture for science. Exploration of the potential impact of contemporary ideology, politics, gender constructs and other social and cultural factors on our understanding of how art and art history differ in the 'primitive' and 'civilized' world

Paris primitive : Jacques Chirac's museum on the Quai Branly by Sally Price( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1990 Jacques Chirac, the future president of France and a passionate fan of non-European art, met Jacques Kerchache, a maverick art collector with the lifelong ambition of displaying African sculpture in the holy temple of French culture, the Louvre. Together they began laying plans, and ten years later African fetishes were on view under the same roof as the Mona Lisa. Then, in 2006, amidst a maelstrom of controversy and hype, Chirac presided over the opening of a new museum dedicated to primitive art in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower: the Muse;e du Quai Branly. Paris Primitive recounts the massive reconfiguration of Paris's museum world that resulted from Chirac's dream, set against a backdrop of personal and national politics, intellectual life, and the role of culture in French society. Along with exposing the machinations that led to the MQB's creation, Sally Price addresses the thorny questions it raises about the legacy of colonialism, the balance between aesthetic judgments and ethnographic context, and the role of institutions of art and culture in an increasingly diverse France. Anyone with a stake in the myriad political, cultural, and anthropological issues raised by the MQB will find Price's account fascinating
Narrative of a five years expedition against the revolted Negroes of Surinam : transcribed for the first time from the original 1790 manuscript by John Gabriel Stedman( Book )

8 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reisverslag van een Schotse militair in Nederlandse dienst die van 1773 tot 1777 deelnam aan expedities tegen ontvluchte slaven in Suriname
Equatoria by Richard Price( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A postmodern romp through the rain forest, Equatoria is both travelogue and cultural critique. On the right-hand pages the Prices chronicle their 1990 artifact-collecting expedition up the rivers of French Guiana, and on the left, stage an accompanying sideshow that enlists the help of Jonathan Swift, Joseph Conrad, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Alex Haley, James Clifford, Eric Hobsbawm, Germaine Greer, and even the noted anthropologist James Goodfellow (who asks for more sex). Also included are quotes from the nurses, doctors, tourists, convicts and countless others who live in this French penal colony turned space center in tropical South America."--BOOK JACKET. "Charged with acquiring objects for a new museum, the Prices kept a log of their day-to-day adventures and misadventures, constantly confronting their ambivalence about the act of collecting, the very possibility of exhibiting cultures, and the future of anthropology. By the time their expedition arrived in the villages of the Aluku Maroons, these African-American descendants of rebel slaves had become as comfortable in blue jeans and frilly mail-order dresses flown in from Paris as in breechcloths and trade cotton wrapskirts. What would they think of exporting material chunks of their artistic heritage to a glossy modern building in a suburb of Cayenne?"--BOOK JACKET. "Probing the nature of museums, collecting, and power relations between "us" and "them," the authors raise many troubling questions. Anyone concerned about cultural preservation, museums, "primitive" art, anthropology, indigenous rights, and the legacies of colonialism will be challenged by this playful, but eminently serious work."--Jacket
Two evenings in Saramaka by Richard Price( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the more general context of tale telling by the descendants of Africans throughout the Americas and of recent scholarship in performance studies, these Saramaka tales are presented as a dramatic script. With the help of nearly forty photographs, readers become familiar not only with the characters in folktale-land, but also with the men and women who so imaginatively bring them to life. And because music complements narration in Saramaka just as it does elsewhere in Afro-America, more than fifty songs are presented here in musical notation
Stedman's Surinam : life in an eighteenth-century slave society by John Gabriel Stedman( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This abridgment of the Prices' acclaimed 1988 critical edition is based on Stedman's original, handwritten manuscript, which offers a portrait at considerable variance with the 1796 classic. The unexpurgated text, presented here with extensive notes and commentary, constitutes one of the richest and most evocative accounts ever written of colonial life--and one of the strongest indictments ever to appear against New World slavery
Enigma variations by Richard Price( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the game of cat-and-mouse unfolds, the trail leads from the fashionable living rooms of French expatriates to the thatched huts of the Amazonian rainforest, from a Princeton seminar room to a cluttered warehouse not far from Devil's Island, from a chic Parisian cafe to the cobbled streets of northeastern Brazil. Are the objects in the collection worldclass masterpieces of primitive art? Or do they reflect the agile hand and twisted mind of a brilliant forger? Or might the ultimate enigma be of an entirely different nature? Under the equatorial sun, the anthropologists' obsessive pursuit of Truth gradually undermines their academic certainties about art and culture - and, ultimately, their vision of reality itself
The root of roots, or, How Afro-American anthropology got its start by Richard Price( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this pamphlet anthropological iconoclasts Richard and Sally Price crack the yellowing diaries of Melville and Frances Herskovits on their famous 1920s expedition deep into the South American jungle, exposing-with their trademark combination of deadpan wit and theoretical rigor-the origins of the field that has come to be known as African diaspora studies. (Taken from the back cover of book.)
