African masks

This is the second of our forays into exhibiting aspects of the art of Africa at The Hidden Lane Gallery.

‘A fascinating insight into the marvels of African art: masks, drums, and other artefacts, mostly from Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Mali, Congo and the Kingdom of Cameroon, where royal workshops are distinguished by their innovative beadwork.
‘Often looked on in the West as ‘primitive’, this exhibition will prove the opposite. The design, the endlessly varied interpretations of human (and animal) heads – these imaginative works provided inspiration to the great European artists, stimulating the emergence of Cubism.’
