African cosmos : stellar arts by Christine Mullen Kreamer( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A groundbreaking scholarly publication, accompanying an exhibition organized by the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, African Cosmos: Stellar Arts brings together exceptional works of art, dating from ancient times to the present, and essays by leading scholars and contemporary artists to consider African cultural astronomy: creativity and artistic practice in Africa as it is linked to celestial bodies and atmospheric phenomena. African concepts of the universe are intensely personal, placing human beings in relation to the earth and sky, and with the sun, moon, and stars. At the core of creation myths and the foundation of moral values, celestial bodies are often accorded sacred capacities and are part of the "cosmological map" that allows humans to chart their course through life."--Publisher's website

Life of bone : art meets science by University of the Witwatersrand( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book, Life of bone, is a digest of numerous engagements amongst a small group of artists and fellow academics, for whom bones are the evidence and symbols of hominid evolution, genetic bifurcations which have resulted in global genetic variety, and of man's oftentimes questionable ethical responses to others who are seen as not-the-same."

Re/discovery and memory : the works of Kumalo, Legae, Nitegeka & Villa( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication documents four chapters of the exhibition Re/discovery and memory. The retrospectives of eminent South African sculptors, Sydney Kumalo and Ezrom Legae - the first to be undertaken by any institution globally - chronicles their innovative artistic practices. They are presented alongside fellow sculptor and friend Edoardo Villa, whose work between 1958-68 gives insight into the interactions of these artists associated with Polly Street Art Centre and the Amadlozi Group. Working with his ongoing concern regarding the notion of displacement, Serge Alain Nitegeka's contemporary practice - as experienced through his immersive installation - offers us a means for reassessing Villa's own engagement with immigration, as seen in his early works"--back cover

Hair in African art and culture by Niangi Batulukisi( Book )

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

"The exhibition, Hair in African Art and Culture, and this book serve to introduce a mode of African art too little and too infrequently recognized or appreciated. Field photographs and sculptures sample the rich variety of hair arrangements that exist or have existed in traditional African life and art. Despite the many references to the abstract character of African masks and figures it is clear that two areas of the real world were accurately, indeed realistically, depicted: scarification and coiffures." "Essays and notes address a number of aspects of African and African-American hair and collectively hint at the variety, complex meanings and history of hair styles. Some of the essays are personal, some present the nature of coiffures in the cycle of life: from birth to death, from celebration to mourning." "In traditional and modern Africa, and the African-American diaspora, hair styles establish a personal identity that reflects both fashion and aesthetic choice."--Jacket
