"The Western eye continues to be captivated by the powerful message of the African statue, the mystery of the carvings of Oceania, and the implicit aggression of the Toraya statue." "The book presents the best examples of these arts (mostly from the prestigious Barbier-Muller collection in Switzerland), and is an invitation to discover their beauty in all its forms, whether in a Nok head from Nigeria, a Batak horseman from northern Sumatra, or a drum from New Guinea."--Jacket

Tribal art by Bérénice Geoffroy-Schneiter( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From cave painting to aboriginal body art--the first tattoos--and from statues to masks, this volume covers the spectrum of tribal art and sets misconceptions straight. Gauguin, Picasso, and Giacometti were inspired by it--but what exactly is tribal art? Exposing old clichés and outdated ideas, this clearly written and vividly illustrated volume explains the art form's key concepts--from the basics of material and form, to underlying beliefs--and takes the reader through its history, geography, and techniques, from the bright blue statues of the Solomon Islands to pre-Colombian abstract feather artwork. A section on the artists and movements inspired by tribal art attests to its lasting influence, while an illustrated list of the world's thirty most significant works of tribal art allows the reader to discover their impact firsthand. A glossary of terms, a list of where to see tribal art, and a chronology of major ethnological expeditions and exhibitions complete this indispensable guide to the world's oldest art"--Amazon.com, viewed July 1, 2013

Africa is in style by Bérénice Geoffroy-Schneiter( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and French and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is not unusual to see the colors and hear the rhythms of Africa at runway shows in Paris, New York, or Milan. But despite its influence on Western designers, African fashion is still struggling to make itself known. With the ambitious pursuit of reinventing urban fashion, many young African designers are breaking away from the expectations imposed on them to infuse ethnic and folkloric themes into their work, without ignoring rich textiles and fashion heritage. Bringing together archival images, illustrations, and photographs, Africa Is In Style paints a lively picture of this constantly evolving world, looking at designers and labels from Alphadi to Xule Bet, from Oumou Sy to Juliette Ombang, Mickael Kra, and others. This book accompanies the competition of young African stylists organized by the French Association for Artistic Action (AFAA) at the 2005 International Festival of African Fashion (FIMA) in Niamey, Niger

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book is divided into three broad geographical areas - Africa, Oceania and the Southeast Asian islands - which explore in thorough detail the history and cultural significance of each region's art. It is magnificently illustrated throughout with photographs of the best pieces held in the world's greatest museums, most notably the prestigious Barbier-Mueller Collection in Switzerland. The book also carries previously unpublished documentary illustrations - prints, photographs and drawings - of the art 'in action', be it a photograph of a piece of jewelry adorning the neck of a Nok warrior or an engraving depicting a Maori war canoe being cast off into the Pacific." "With a select bibliography and maps of all the areas covered, this invaluable publication is an accessible introduction to a truly remarkable canon that was for years considered the preserve of ethnologists and cultural historians."--BOOK JACKET

Micromonumentalité : l'éloge du minuscule dans l'art africain = Micromonumentality : a tribute to miniature works of African art by Bérénice Geoffroy-Schneiter( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and French and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Micromonumentality is the first title in a series, Micro-Africa, that highlights the artistic and cultural value of miniature objects created in Africa. The first volume introduces the concept behind the series, offering a broad overview of objects and materials created and used by a large number of different African ethnic groups. With superb full-page photographs and close-ups of individual details, Micromonumentality extols the wealth of expression found in talismans, weights, boxes, containers, fetishes, jewels, and other objects made from wood, ivory, bone, bronze, iron, aluminum, and stone. None of these exceed 6 inches in height or length, and though they are indeed "microscopic," they are as expressive as much larger works, and "monumental" in their own right. Here, approximately 150 objects from a unique collection of 20,000 pieces represent the quintessence of African thought, religiosity, and prodigious formal inventiveness."--Publisher's website
