Summary
"Angaza Afrika - the Swahili for 'shed light on Africa' - is a statement of this book's mission: to illuminate Africa's immensely fertile artistic landscape. Africa has emerged from its colonial past and is asserting its own identity. African art is not only confined to the continent itself, but has spread throughout the world. From the enforced migrations of the slave trade through the upheavals of the post-colonial period, African art and artists are also now established in Europe, North America, the Carribean and South America." "This book brings together more than 60 of Africa's most creative contemporary artists. Their work leaps off the page with more than 350 colour images. In addition to painters, sculptors and photographers, there are also a number of artists whose work embraces performance and installation. The materials they use range from the traditional to the highly unorthodox, as does their imagery." "This is the first book on contemporary African art to harness the creative energy pulsating from not only the continent but also from the rich global community that has developed outside it."--BOOK JACKET
