African Art in The Worlds First Garden City"Good Art provides.., people with a vocabulary about things they can't articulate"

 

"If  art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his Vision wherever it takes him -  John F. Kennedy.

elephants_sunsetAfrican art has played an important role in the culture and history of the world. It's distinctive characteristics and inspirations have influenced many artists to adapt their own interpretation of the art in their own time period. Characteristics of African art had made its way into many paintings in the Cubist period, among others. If one examines the European avant-garde artistic movement of cubism, founded mainly by Pablo Picasso, you will find many themes adapted from African art.

 

We continue to revisit and provide latest updates on the series of exhibitions on African Renaissance - Spirits of Africa  during the year.  We look forward to covering a broad cross section of the artists in the coming year from the countries of South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania, - looking at the art movement, since their independence, tracing the development and progress! The collection will include Khoisan art, Ethnic tribal art , Wildlife art, Modern contemporary abstracts works to landscape paintings, and including a selection of Shona sculptures from Zimbabwe.

Our past exhibitions had guest artists from East, Central and .South Africa - Lisa Wendt, Quentin Allen,Muzu, and Millie Woods Swanpoel, We also look forward to adding more developments with NEW list of visiting artists to add to our portfolio of ICAS gallery artists.

 

Everyone with the slightest interest in modern art knows how powerfully African art impacted Picasso, Braque, Brancusi, Modigliani, the German Expressionists, and countless others. Numerous exhibitions, some grand and some humble, have addressed this issue. What is less well known is how this art influenced New York artists, many of whom had studied in Paris—just a step removed from Picasso and Braque. Click HERE to Request more info
