For This World and Beyond: African Art from the Fred and Rita Richman Collection
ATLANTA • High Museum of Art • Ongoing
|The exhibition demonstrates how, in Africa, art serves many purposes from educating youth to mediating relations between men and women to tapping divine power. |
Half of the approximately 100 works of art included in the exhibition are promised gifts to the High Museum from the Fred and Rita Richman collection.
Photographs as well as audio and video components help visitors better understand the varied contexts within which these works of art, made primarily during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, once functioned.
