  • Spring 2004 Exhibit

    "AFRICA: A Legacy in Memory"

    To help celebrate Hamline University's 150th anniversary in 2004 a unique festival was held. The festival, Africa: A Legacy in Memory, explored Africa’s artistic and cultural heritage and honored the contributions of the continent of Africa in the humanities and the arts.
          
    The centerpiece of the festival was a special exhibition, Material Differences, organized and previously exhibited at the Museum for African Art in New York and curated by Frank Herreman, former Deputy Director for Exhibitions. This exhibition has been made possible in part through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts.  

    This exhibition examines the extensive range of materials used in the creation of African art and reveals the inherent relationships between the materials, their significance as media, artistic techniques, and the role of artists. The use of a wide range of different materials plays a major role in the creation of African art works. The choice may be religious, economic or socially motivated. Some materials are ephemeral, while others are chosen to last for generations. The exhibition is organized according to the type of materials used, technique, and artistic processes.

    Material Differences features over 100 objects from public and private collections. Visitors’ experience will be enhanced by contextual information, including photographs and video footage, that illuminate the factors that determine why objects are created in particular ways.
