      Authors: Jones L.

      Abstract: I grew up in a family of journalists, so I take the daily routines of writing, editing, and producing a publication as a given. It's hardly a surprise that, after graduate school, I wound up in academic publishing, mostly working on journals. Yet it's always a shock to me how little most academics understand about the nitty-gritty of publishing—after all, one of the things that inspired me to get a doctorate was the realization that, “Hey, ‘publish or perish’ is already my motto!”

  • Beyond Listening: Systemic Transformation in Fashion Studies and Fashion
           Collections

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Akou H.
      Pages: 6 - 7
      Abstract: In their First Word essay, “Listening as a Radical Act,” Erica de Greef, Shayna Goncalves, and Angela Jansen (2021) argue for the importance of listening as a means to overcome our legacies of colonization. Without listening, it is too easy to assume that “fashion” is inherently capitalist and modern, created by genius designers (artists) in Western fashion capitals (Paris, London, New York) and that everything else is just a pale imitation. The way I have stated this might seem like an exaggeration—surely it can't be that bad in fashion studies—but as the authors have pointed out from their own diverse perspectives, it really is that bad. Too many people have experienced the study and curation of fashion as a devaluing gauntlet.

      Abstract: On October 8, 2021, I had the pleasure of conversing with Maman Monique Misenga Ngoie Mukuna in Kinshasa on her recently published autobiography, Cradling Abundance: One African Christian's Story of Empowering Women and Fighting Systemic Poverty (2021). We had discussed the nonprofit organization Femme, Berceau de l'Abondance (FEBA), or “Woman, Cradle of Abundance,” founded by Maman Monique, Maman Agnes Anekumba Umadjela, Maman Marie-Jeanne Kapinga Kayuwa, Maman Pauline Mfulu, Maman Jacqueline Ndidila, and Maman Baila. One of FEBA's main programs is its sewing school, which equips girls and women with the skills to become self-sufficient tailors. Thus, FEBA utilizes fashion as an avenue through which girls and women can earn a living to support themselves and their families.

  • William Fagaly March 1, 1938-May 23, 2021

      Authors: Peek PM.
      Pages: 8 - 9
      Abstract: Little is left to know about William Fagaly after the publication of his autobiography, intriguingly titled The Night Crawler King: Memoirs of an Art Museum Curator (2021). Given his well-deserved reputation as a devoted party goer in New Orleans, that title immediately brings to mind wild images; but, no, the title refers to his childhood “business” of harvesting worms to sell to local fishermen. The book is not only a guide to Bill's rich life but an important record of philanthropists, collectors, dealers, museum directors, as well as artists and fellow-travelers in New Orleans. This lively record is organized in “episodes,” not mere “chapters.”

  • Early African Ivories The Ghana Cluster

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Afonso L; Almeida C, da Silva Horta J.
      Pages: 10 - 19
      Abstract: Based on archaeological excavations conducted in the 1970s by Merrick Posnansky in Begho (Ghana), this paper outlines a new cluster of early African ivories located in central Ghana.11 This group dates from the same time of other clusters widely recognized by the literature on early African ivories, such as those located on Serra Leoa,22 Owo, Benin, Calabar, and Kongo.33 Ivories belonging to some of these clusters are well documented in historical sources of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, including records in European collections as early as the mid-sixteenth century. Fragments of other ivories were found in archaeological contexts dating from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, namely in Portugal (Manso, Casimiro and Gomes 2021) and Ghana (Posnansky 1976). When compared against each other, the internal cohesiveness of these clusters becomes clearer, as well as their differences.

  • Ceremonial Bill-Hooks from Sierra Leone

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hart W.
      Pages: 20 - 25
      Abstract: In an article in African Arts in summer 1975 the Italian scholar V.I. Grottanelli announced the discovery in Rome of a hitherto unrecorded late fifteenth/early sixteenth century ivory salt-cellar from Sierra Leone. It was no ordinary run-of-the-mill work, but what he justifiably described as a masterpiece of carving, of exceptional size and decorative detail, not least in the carving of the lid, which showed a large squatting male figure, naked except for a pair of shorts, wearing a broad-brimmed hat, a round shield on its left arm, and its right arm raised gripping the handle of a hatchet as if to strike (Fig. 1). In front of the figure was a smaller figure, its head bowed as if to receive the blow, and half-a-dozen decapitated heads. The ensemble understandably was interpreted by Grottanelli, and by others subsequently, as a scene of actual or symbolic execution.

  • Power Objects: On the Transient Nature of Classifications, with Examples
           from the Kwilu Region in Congo-Brazzaville

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hersak D.
      Pages: 26 - 35
      Abstract: Classifications, typologies, labels, and other organizational tools help us wade through complex cultural contexts and specificities. They may be a point of departure that suggests clarity, providing a veil of reassurance. Yet, if not subject to renewal in terms of temporal and spatial considerations, they can become static mechanisms that constrain and obscure the wealth of changing and seemingly anomalous factors that are essential features of dynamic cultural realities. As Gonseth et al. have stated, “the world cannot be defined solely in terms of classifications … it has to be looked at through, between, over, and above the expressions of our codes” (2013:19).

  • A Reconsideration of the History and Iconology of Yorùbá Equestrian
           Figure through Two Ifá Verses and the Ojúde-Ọ ba Festival

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Akande A.
      Pages: 36 - 49
      Abstract: This study probes into the iconology, history, and representation of the horseman figure in Yorùbáland and art. Although literature abounds on this topic, many such writings have approached the topic from the investigation of visual cultures and plastic representation of the horse. The present study employs multidimensional and uncon-ventional approaches arising from considerations of iconology, religion, orature, and socioreligious performative festivals among the Yorùbá. The aim is to expand the research frontiers of the his-tory of the horse and representation of the horseman figure in Yorùbáland and add new narratives to existing discourse on the topic. Following extensive and perplexing scholarship on the horse and equestrian figure in Yorùbáland, the present research is pre-mised on sources guided by the Yorùbá maxim ọrọ sùnùkùn, oju sùnnùkùn ni a fi nwòó, meaning, “a bewildering situation requires an infrequent approach.” This maxim is generally recalled when a situation seems to defy known solutions. Such puzzles require unusual approaches. Here, the proverb is recalled to justify dif-ferent methods of inquiry, especially those unexpected from an art historian like me.

  • Nkwọ Onunu Cultural Heritage in Nsukka Igbo, Nigeria: A Festival in
           Honor of a Mother Goddess

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Okoro MN.
      Pages: 50 - 65
      Abstract: There can be no discussion of the Nkwọ Onunu festival without first situating Nsukka Asadụ Ideke Arụmọna (Ishiayanategna).11 The archae-ology of Nsukka indicates that they are an an-cient people in Igboland. This has been shown through Hartle's excavation at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka farm site, which yielded pottery dated to about 2500 bce. However, it is clear that human activities were already present at about 3000 bce (Chikwendu 2002: 29). Geographically, the town is situated in the northern part of Igboland. It shares borders with Oba and Ede Oballa Nome in the east, Edem Ekeodobo and Alor Ulo in the west, Obukpa Asadu in the north, and Ikwọka Ezembịa and Obimo Asebere in the south. The first indigenous22 University of Nigeria is located in the town—hence, the name University of Nigeria, Nsukka. The town is made up of four quarters: Nkpụnanọ, Nru n'atọ Ezke Ekwensu, Ihe, and Owere Dialoke Ndidiaba. It has nine “autonomous communities”33 cre-ated out of Ishiayanategna. In all, there are 117 villages in Nsukka Asadụ Ideke Arumọna.44

  • Traditional Igbo Architecture: A Symbolic Evaluation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ene-Orji C.
      Pages: 66 - 81
      Abstract: In Things Fall Apart (1958) and Arrow of God (1964), Chinua Achebe was concerned to show that Africans before the intervention of Europeans had culture, government, religion, philosophy, astronomy, music, dance, science, art, and architecture. These novels were set in the precolonial era, toward the onset of colonization in Igboland in Eastern Nigeria (Fig. 1). Traditional architecture has long been used as an index to measure humankind's state of development or their response to their environment in terms of using available materials to afford protection over the elements, animals, and fellow people. Beyond these basic essentials, however, Vitruvius, in his treatise De Architectura Litori Decem (27–23 Bce) considered philosophy, music, meteorology, astronomy, and engineering as related to architecture (Dmochowski 1990: v). It is within these and other contexts—like environment, religion, tradition and language—that traditional Igbo architecture will be examined to illustrate its symbolic attributes in this essay.
