Détails sur le produit: Broché: 144 pages, 240x165 mm. - Editeur: Five Continents Editions (3 décembre 2009) - Collection: Visions of Africa Series - Langue: Anglais - ISBN-10: 8874394047 - ISBN-13: 978-8874394043
Descrizione libro: This title offers a fascinating and essential overview of the Kuba people and their art through fifty exemplary pieces. The latest volume in the Visions of Africa series, it explores the intriguing sculpture and decorative art of the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Best known for their king figures (ndop), considered among the greatest sculptural achievements of Sub-Saharan Africa, the Kuba actually produced little freestanding sculpture. Instead, they focused on a variety of decorative works that indicated success and achievement, and initiation-related pieces such as masks. The first book dedicated exclusively to this subject, Kuba examines the tribe's artistic development from the 17th century through the turbulent colonial and post-colonial periods. The authors also explore the impact of Kuba beliefs on their art and discuss the pervasive concerns that inform the tribe's art making. With 50 beautifully reproduced examples and an engaging, informative text, Kuba is a fascinating introduction to African

Arte primero
Las expresiones arte primero y arte primitivo son empleadas para designar las producciones artísticas de las sociedades dichas "tradicionales", " sin escritura " o "primitivas". Por extensión, el término(plazo) designa comúnmente la producción artística tradicional de las culturas no occidentales.
La expresión " arte primitivo ", atada(vinculada) al colonialismo es distintamente despectiva y desde hace algunos años ha caído en desuso en provecho de " arte primero ". Pero esta expresión más valorizante queda controvertida en la medida en que traduciría también un diseño(concepción) evolucionista y ethnocentriste sociedades humanas: las sociedades occidentales producirían un " arte acabado " que se opondría a las " primeras artes ", que serían la obra de los pueblos quedados próximos de un estado arcaico de la humanidad. Además, las formas mayores de arte primero (en África o en Oceania, por ejemplo) distintamente se distinguen de formas mucho más antiguas de arte (arte prehistórico o arte neolítico). Del

Art premier
Les expressions art premier et art primitif sont employées pour désigner les productions artistiques des sociétés dites « traditionnelles », « sans écriture » ou « primitives ». Par extension, le terme désigne communément la production artistique traditionnelle des cultures non-occidentales.
L'expression « art primitif », liée au colonialisme est nettement péjorative et est depuis quelques années tombée en désuétude au profit d' « art premier ». Mais cette expression plus valorisante reste controversée dans la mesure où elle traduirait aussi une conception évolutionniste et ethnocentriste des sociétés humaines : les sociétés occidentales produiraient un « art abouti » s'opposant aux « arts premiers », qui seraient l'œuvre des peuples restés proches d'un état archaïque de l'humanité. De plus, les formes majeures d'art premier (en Afrique ou en Océanie, par exemple) se distinguent nettement de formes d'art beaucoup plus anciennes (art préhistorique ou art néolithique). Du point de vue chronologique, l'expression est donc aussi contestable.
Si cette vision est largement remise en cause aujourd'hui, les expressions subsistent notamment dans les pays anglo-saxons. L'appellation « Musée des arts premiers », initialement envisagée, a été abandonnée pour désigner le Musée du quai Branly.
Les expressions « art sauvage », « art tribal », « art ethnographique », « art traditionnel » ou « art archaïque » sont également utilisées, sans être

THE NEW CONGO COLLECTION

During the summer of 1912 the Museum acquired by purchase a collection of about two thousand 
specimens consisting of weapons, utensils, ornaments, clothing and images from a number of African 
tribes living in the Congo basin.  This collection was, for the most part, obtained from the natives by the 
well-known German traveler, Frobenius.

‘African Vision: The Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection’
 
This female figure, made of ivory and standing 37 inches tall, was made in the early Nineteenth Century by Edo peoples in the Benin kingdom court style, and was probably intended for an altar to a queen mother. It is one of the first two objects purchased by Paul and Ruth Tishman in 1959. "Ivory can be almost universally interpreted as a symbol of importance and wealth,” says exhibition curator Bryna Freyer.
WASHINGTON D.C.:Most Americans know little about the vast and diverse continent of Africa, much less the arts created there. Dark and primitive, the arts of the African peoples reflect the rituals of life, stripped to the most basic interpretive forms both conceptually and artistically.
Celebrating the arts of Africa and the profound role that they have played in molding Twentieth Century Abstraction and Modernist art in the "West" is the Smithsonian's newest exhibition, "African Vision: The Walt Disney-Tishman African Art Collection." It is on view through September 7, 2008, at The Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art (NMAA).
 
"African Vision" showcases 88 outstanding artworks, part of a larger collection donated to the NMAA, that represents the largest gift of sculpture in the museum's history.
 
In 1959, Paul and Ruth Tishman began their collection with the purchase of two pieces of art from the Benin kingdom — an early Nineteenth Century ivory female figure standing 37 inches tall, made in the court style by the Edo peoples, and a 28-inch-tall, Eighteenth Century copper alloy mask that was worn by a divine-healer in masquerade
