GALLERY TALK

IT’S A WRAP! West African Textiles 
Thursday, November 10, 6 p.m.

Join Professor of Fine Arts Michelle Gilbert, Department of Fine Arts, Trinity College, for a fascinating tour of the newly installed exhibition, IT’S A WRAP! this Thursday, Nov. 10th at 6p.m.  Sponsored in part by the Maxwell African Scholars Union, Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, Syracuse University. This lecture is free and open to the public.  For parking information, please visit parking.syr.edu

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Michelle Gilbert (Trinity College, Hartford, CT) received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of London (School of Oriental and African Studies) and her M.A. in Art History from Northwestern University. Her long-term research project on a complex ritual cycle in a small kingdom in southern Ghana has led to numerous publications on divine kingship, art, religion, and political power. She has also organized several traveling exhibitions on “popular” urban art from Ghana.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION 

It’s a Wrap! features examples drawn from geographically proximate locales in West Africa- Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, and Cameroon – that exemplify woven, stamped, appliqued, and resist-dyed textiles. The exhibition textiles and costumes are on loan from the collections of Michelle Gilbert, CT; Joseph Knopfelmacher, NY; and Amyas Naegele, NY. 

Now on view in The Study Gallery through December 23, 2016.
