Triennial Symposium African Visitors
Program. The planning committee for the
1995 Triennial Symposium is submitting a
proposal to the United States Information
Agency for funds to enable a group of about
twelve African colleagues to attend the
Tiennial in New York in April 1995. The
group will include museum curators and

administrators, artists, and professors of art
and art history, representing all parts of
Africa. Following the Triennial meeting, the
group will participate in a four- to six-week
program of visits to several leading African
Studies Centers, principal museums with
holdings in African art, and other sites of
interest across the United States.
We are now seeking suggestions/
nominations for participants in the program.
The Triennial planning committee will compile
these suggestions and submit them to USIA,
with the understanding that the various USIS
posts in Africa may nominate their own
candidates. To nominate an African colleague
to be considered for this program, please send
his or her name to Kate Ezra (AAOA,
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth
Avenue, New York, NY 10028, USA. Telephone
(212) 879-5500, extension 3057. FAX (212)
472-2872. Ask your nominee to send his or
her CV to the same address. Please submit
the names by May 1, 1994.
ACASA Membership and Dues. 1994
membership in ACASA is $25/year for both
regular members and institutions; $10/year
special (students, unemployed and retired).

Changes in the ACASA By-Laws
Approved. 256 mail ballots were sent out
with the January membership renewal to all
1993 members in good standing. 108 were
returned with 105 members in favor of the
proposed changes, two ballots returned blank
(presumably in favor!) and one opposed. The
dissenting vote offered these concerns: "Why
should it be so difficult to nominate a member
at large? To get 10 signatures of members
anywhere other than at the annual meeting
means a letter writing campaign that no one
has time for (or is that the whole point?)."

following publications were sent in March
1994 under the auspices of the ACASA Book

Art Chief Curator, has been awarded a

ACASA Newsletter / No. 39, April 1994

Smithsonian Regents Publication Award to
complete his book Dreams and reverie: Baule
images of other-yorld mates in the twentieth
century. He will be away from the Museum
during the months of June and July 1994.
Roy Sieber retired last summer after teaching
thirty-one years at Indiana University. Sieber
was named Rudy Professor of Fine Arts in
1974 because he has made a truly significant
impact not only on the field of African art
history at Indiana University (IU) but also
throughout the country and the world. He
trained four dozen PhDs, who continue to
contribute to the discipline through their
teaching and museum work, and has advised
numerous benefactors of African art in
building public and private collections.
To honor his achievement, the Art History
Program at IU is launching a drive to fund a
Roy Sieber Graduate Fellowship Endowment.
The endowment will provide support for one
or more graduate students majoring in African
art to work with the African art collection of
the IU Art Museum, which owns some 500
African objects, many of high quality, but
most of them have not been researched or
even published.
A $200,000 endowment will fund a
fellowship that will attract the best students in
the field. For information or to contribute,
contact W. Eugene Kleinbauer, History of Art,
Fine Arts Building 132, Indiana University,
Bloomington, IN 47405-3501. Telephone:

Craftsman House, East Roseville, Australia,
1993), has been commissioned and contracted
by Craftsman House, Australia to write a
second book, Contemporary southern African

painting. She will focus on painting in the
SADC Region within the broader context of
issues relating to the development of the visual
arts in the region. She made a visit to Zambia
earlier this year for the purpose of
interviewing painters and professionals in the
visual arts community in Lusaka, Livingstone
and elsewhere in the country.

Benedict Chuka Enwonwu, foremost Nigerian
artist, passed away in Lagos on February 6,
1994. Born in 1918 [official birth data, 1921],
Enwonwu first came to public attention as one
of the students of Kenneth Murray whose
paintings were exhibited at the Zwemmer
Gallery in London in 1937. Enwonwu's career
as a painter spanned over six decades and
included many of the major developments in
the making of modern Nigeria's art tradition.
Highly respected and honored during the
colonial period, Enwonwu's eccentric attitude
made him inaccessible to many emergent
Nigerian artists and this spawned much
criticism of his personality and thus his art.
Professor Enwonwu was widely exhibited
internationally. His commissions ranged from
several large bronze sculptures produced for
the Nigerian government to paintings and
portraits of prominent individuals, such as
Queen Elizabeth II of England. In recent
years, perhaps as a result of his continued
visibility on the Nigerian art scene, scholars
are beginning to re-appraise Enwonwu's
contributions to the development of a new art
tradition in Nigeria during the colonial and
post-colonial period. submitted by Sylvester
Okwunodu Ogbechie, Northwestern University.

Children's Masquerade in Africa: Call for
papers. Simon Ottenberg and David Binkley
are co-editing a volume on Children's
Masquerade in Africa. While they have a
number of firm commitments to the volume,
they would like to announce this project once
The literature on African masquerade has
primarily focused on the study of fully
developed traditions: African masks that are
made by adults for adult consumption. Little
interest has been directed to the study of the
socialization to mask making and use.

ACASA Newsletter / No. 39, April 1994 5

Technical and aesthetic training is usually
explained as being undertaken by institutions
such as initiation societies. While these
institutions undoubtedly play a part in this
knowledge acquisition, recent evidence
attributes the acquisition of these skills in
large part to the resourcefulness of young
people themselves. Through observation and
imitation including the patterning of aesthetic
behavior on adult models, the youth of many
African cultures acquire a degree of technical
and aesthetic competence often before
adult-sanctioned activities such as initiation
rituals take place.
Contributors to the edited volume will
discuss the variety of forms that children's
masquerade take and the cultural processes
which account for these forms, including the
relationship between children and adult forms
of masquerade in both rural and urban
settings. The deadline for abstracts is
September 15, 1994 and for the final
papers, January 10, 1995. If you would like
to be considered for inclusion in this volume,
please send an abstract to: David Binkley,

Institution MRC 708, Wshington, DC 20560.
Telephone (202) 357-4600 extension 235. FAX

address is Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art,

and contemporary photographs of children's
masks and masquerades.

The Journal of Culture & Society: call for
papers. Published by The Association for
Culture and Society and edited by Jeanne B.
Ewing, the new journal's goals are: To share
scholarly research among academicians,

students, and the general public; To provide a
forum for the exchange of intellectual thought
pertaining to cultural, social, and historical

multicultural reality of today's world; To bring
to light the universal characteristics of the
human condition as they relate to individuals,
society, and communities.
Recommended Topics: Articles concerning
culture, particularly those having to do with
ethnic, religious, and cultural traditions;
research studies using ethnographic methods,
both qualitative and quantitative approaches;
papers on methodology; history of
anthropology and folklore; historical pieces on
aspects of social science having to do with
method, such as discussion and analyses of
pioneer works in the development of the
methods; ethical issues; book reviews.
The Journal will be devoted about equally
between cultural issues and the more societal
factors having to do with social problems.

Historical Issues, (3) Research Methodology
Past and Present, (4) Education, Culture, and
Societal Change, (5) Theoretical and
Philosophical Outlooks, (6) Teaching and

Call for proposals, 1994. The African
Archives and Museums Project (AAMP) is a
program administered by the joint Committee
of African Studies of the Social Science
Research Council and the American Council
of Learned Societies with core funding from
the Ford Foundation and supplementary
funding from the Rockefeller Foundation. The

ACASA Newsletter / No. 39, April 1994

project aims to strengthen and invigorate the
work of archives and museum in Africa.
Background: AAMP is designed to help
museums and archives in their efforts to
overcome these problems of conservation and
accessibility by awarding grants up to $15,000
in support of activities that will preserve
significant but especially endangered
collections; document, catalog, and display
special holdings; and enhance public access to
museum and archival resources. The capacity
of the institution to effectively administer both
newly-collected materials and existing holdings
will be a key criterion in evaluating the merit
of such requests. AAMP is especially
receptive to projects that draw on local
expertise and community resources and bring
together different institutions in cooperative
ventures. Proposals from archives for
exhibition and outreach programs are
especially welcome. AAMP seeks to assist
archives and museums in strengthening the
management of and access to collections they
already have.
Types of awards: AAMP awards two
types of grants: seed grants and
implementation grants. Seed grants up to
$5,000 are intended to advance the conceptual
and logistical development of conservation,
documentation, or exhibition/outreach/education
projects. Seed grants allow the institution to
consult with experts from other institutions, to
assess the feasibility of a large project, or to
carry out a small-scale project. Receipt of a
seed grant does not guarantee receipt of an
implementation grant at a later date.
Implementation grants from $5,000 up to
$15,000 are intended to support conservation,
documentation, and exhibition/outreach/
education activities. The application procedures
and review process for both types of grants
are the same.
Elements of the application:
* Cover letter from the project director.
* Statement (1,500 words) describing the
proposed project, including profile of the
institution: a description of the institution's
mandate; sources of support; age and size;
number and categories of staff; audiences;
special characteristics and facilities; the
type, extent, importance, and condition of
the holdings or collections; project
description: the content, activities and goals
of the project; the products that will result

from the project (e.g., catalog, exhibition,
storage system); the ways in which the
project will enhance scholarly and public
access to the institution and its resources;
work plan: a month-by-month schedule that
indicates when project tasks will be
conducted and which persons) will be
involved in executing them. Projects should
be completed within one year; project
personnel: the qualifications of the project
personnel and the specific roles they will
play in executing the project; project
budget: a breakdown of the costs. Please
indicate the extent of existing sources of
support (both local and non-local) for the
* Resumes for each key person who will be
involved in the project.
* Two letters of support from representatives
of relevant institutions or from scholars
familiar with the significance of the
collection and the ability of the archive or
the museum to carry out the project it has
Deadlines: Archives and museums in
sub-Saharan Africa are invited to submit
applications by June 17, 1994. Awards will

FAA Working Group meeting, September
1992, which included John Mack, and at our
meeting in December 1993, which included
Kofi Agorsah. Specific suggestions from
colleagues are cited in notes and references of
the full proposal.]
The preamble of the FAA proposal states our
"Concerned about the widespread
destruction of archaeological sites and the
consequent loss of data essential for the
reconstruction of the artistic and cultural
history of (sub-Saharan) African
civilizations, we intend to establish an
international, non-governmental, non-profit
organization composed of African and
Africanist (American, European, Asian)
colleagues in a variety of relevant
disciplines (archaeology, art history,
anthropology, history, museology, etc.) to
work together in assisting African cultural
institutions and archaeologists. We will
provide financial, material, and personnel
support for emergency, in-progress, and
long-term archaeological projects,
especially (but not exclusively) those
focused on the last two to three
millennia-a period in which the processes
of urbanization and nation-state formation
produced rich, sophisticated artistic
traditions comparable to any created
anywhere in the world and which, as a
result, are in the highest demand in the
illegal international art market."

The full proposal includes the following:
Rationale; History of Proposal; Guiding
Principles; Proposed Programs
a. Practice: (1) Surveys/Inventories, (2)
Salvage/Rescue Operations, (3) Site
Excavations, (4) Specialized Expertise
Projects, (5) Documentation/Conservation

b. Training;

c. Publication and/or Dissemination of

d. Public Education;

e. Advocacy.
We propose to initially fund pilot projects on
a regional basis, beginning with West Africa
(including Cameroon), for reasons explained in
the full proposal. While continuing efforts to
fund FAA, we want to assist African
archaeologists in preparing and submitting
proposals to potential funders. To that end,
you will find below the abstracts of three
proposals received over the last several
months. We hope that some of you will agree
to work on one or more. Thanks in advance

1995 Africa Conferences, Humanities
Research Centre, Australian National
University. The Humanities Research Centre,
Australian National University, Canberra, has
taken Africa as the theme for its 1995
programme. There will be a series of three
conferences in June, July and September, each
focusing on recent research and intellectual
controversy within the fields of archaeology
and pre-history, 'texts' for understanding the
African past, and contemporary Africa,
respectively. Each conference is built around a
modest number of first class papers, no more
than four a day over a period of three to four
days. Every session is a plenary session, with
the conference culminating in a published
volume of selected papers. To this end the
HRC has offered over twenty visiting
fellowships and conference visitorships to
scholars from Africa, North America, and
Europe, as well as Australia/New Zealand.
(The closing date for HRC 1995 Fellowships
was 31 October 1993.)
The three conference conveners are:
"Africa: Precolonial Achievement" (June
1995), Graham Connah of the Department of
Archaeology and Palaeoanthropology,
University of New England (FAX (067) 73
2526); "Out of Africa: 'Texts' for
Understanding the African Past" (July 1995),
David Dorward, Director, African Research
Institute, La Trobe University (FAX (03) 478
5814); and "What is Happening in Africa
Today?" (September 1995), Deryck Schreuder,
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Maquarie
University (FAX (02) 805 7565). The first two
conferences will be held at the HRC in
Canberra, with the third in Sydney in
conjunction with the annual conference of the
African Studies Association of Australia and
the Pacific.
This is the first time the HRC has focused
on Africa, and they have been overwhelmed
by the response, the largest number of
Fellowship applications in memory. It promises
to be a most exciting year.

African Material Culture in Australia and
New Zealand. David Dorward of the African
Research Institute, La Trobe University,
Australia, has been compiling a regional
register of African artifacts in major public
collections in Australia and New Zealand. To
date a computer data base has been compiled
containing information on the origins,
acquisition and location of over 8,000 items,
of which over 6,200 have been photographed
on 35mm color slides.
Most of this material has lain
undocumented and unexhibited since it came
into the collections early this century. Among
the 'finds' have been over forty artifacts from
Benin, including bronze plaques,
commemorative heads and freestanding figures,
as well as smaller pieces in bronze and ivory,
an extensive collection of material from the
upper Congo collected between 1904 and
1918, Asante gold weights collected in the
1920s, and an array of textiles from West
Africa. The bulk of the material was acquired
by Australians and New Zealanders who
worked in Africa, some over many decades;
others were acquired through exchange or
purchase. Preliminary research has already
been undertaken on a number of the
significant collectors, bringing to light diaries,
correspondence and even a glass lantern slide

What is the Kaberry Research Centre? /
submitted by Patrick Mbunwe-Samba. The
Kaberry Research Center (KRC), Bamenda,
Cameroon, is a non-profit organization and a
component of the Association for Creative
Teaching (ACT). The center is open for
scholars, teachers, and researchers in and out
of Cameroon who are interested in the study
of the culture and traditions of the Western
Grassfields (Northwest Province) of Cameroon.
The center collects material, published or
unpublished, on the area.
From time to time the scholars, as a
group, select a theme, produce a questionnaire
and then carry out primary research in areas
that have not already been studied by other
scholars. Major research using this strategy is

ACASA Newsletter / No. 39, April 1994 9

currently being carried out on all life-cycle
rituals (from birth to death) in the Western
Grassfields. Contributions from twelve scholars
formed volume one of the three-volume series
(from birth to adolescence) and was edited by
Elizabeth M. Chilver of Oxford and is being
printed at Amherst University with the help of
Mitzi Goheen. (See below in the new
publications section editor). Work on
volume two (Initiation: Rites of Passage and
Incorporation in Adulthood) is currently being
undertaken by more than sixteen scholars,
including university professors (9), secondary
school teachers (5), primary teachers (4) and
retired teachers (4). As in the first volume,
we hope that the second volume will be
equally interesting and rich because of the
variety of people concerned, all of them
having lived the experiences which they
describe with a lot of fondness. The third
volume (Initiation: Rites of Passage and
Incorporation from Adulthood to Death) will
be undertaken when we have some
sponsorship because up to this point
researchers themselves have been bearing the
full financial cost, which most were just able
to do. Teacher salaries in Cameroon, upon
which most researchers rely for their
livelihood, is from 3 to 16 months in arrears,
making any extra volunteer expenditures now
The reason for the urgency in carrying out
this research in the Western Grassfields is
understandable the traditions and cultures in
this unique area are changing so fast that
there is the urgent need to capture some of it
before much of the traditional culture is lost.
The research of the KRC is being carried out
mostly by local researchers, who are
examining the many different aspects of the
vast area with its virgin and untapped wealth
of oral traditions, material culture and rituals.
Many scholars from Western universities
regularly come to use the facilities the center
offers. There are and have been professors,
students and heads of departments in Western
Europe and North America who are using this
center. Michael Jindra and Nicholas Argenti,
anthropology doctoral students from the
University of Wisconsin-Madison and
University College London respectively, are
presently using the center for background
work for their fieldwork. Many students from
the University of Yaoundd and from the
Catholic Major Seminary have found what has
so far been collected extremely useful.

There are also other areas of research
being considered by individual members of the
KRC team which are listed below. Any person
interested in assisting or in collaborative work
on any of the areas should make inquiries
through the KRC office at the address given
(1) Royal Ethnobotany of the Kingdoms of
the Western Grassfields. (2) Pre-colonial
Traditional African Education in the Western
Grassfields (Dr. Kevin Ngwang Gumne). (3)
Traditional Social Welfare (M. L. Niba). (4)
African Means of Communication (Bongasu
Kishani). (5) Economy in the Western
Grassfields: Iron Production and Pottery
(Joseph Banadzem). (6) Construction
Technology (Gumne Ngwang). (7) Current
Market Forces: How they are affecting the
Production of Material Culture today in the
Western Grassfields of Cameroon (Patrick
Mbunwe Samba, Nicholas Argenti, Pius Soh
Bejeng). (8) Purification Rites and the Belief
System of the Wimbum in the Western
Grassfields (Patrick Mbunwe-Samba, Moses
Nchanji, Ande Williams Mbatu).
The KRC Bulletin, which details the
activities of the center, is published once a
year, if funds are available, and is circulated
to registered and financially up-to-date
members, and also used for publicity purposes.
The KRC is desperately looking for
sponsors to continue its research and thus
keep the center in operation. The KRC, as a
non-profit organization, relies heavily on
support from the public. Your contribution
really counts. Monetary donations, or
alternatively, published or unpublished
materials on the Western Grassfields can be
sent. Any assistance whatsoever, even if only
specifically for the production of the Bulletin,
will be highly appreciated. You can also assist
in publicizing our center.
The KRC welcomes exchanges with other
periodicals and newsletters and we are also
happy to advertise any information sent to us.
One of the greatest roles of this center is the
formation and preservation of a constantly
growing archive, both from internal research
and outside sources. This unique center could
serve as a model for other regional centers in

News from Ethiopia
The Third International Conference on the
History of Ethiopian Art, which was
sponsored by the Institute of Ethiopian Studies,
Addis Ababa University and convened by
Richard Pankhurst, was held from ITesday,
November 9 to Thursday, November 11, 1993.
History. The first of these International
Conferences on the History of Ethiopian Art,
convened by Richard Pankhurst in London in
1986, was sponsored by the Royal Asiatic
Society, and held at London University's
Warburg Institute. The Second conference,
convened by Dr. W. Godlewski, and sponsored
by the Polish National Museum, was held at
Nieborow, near Warsaw, in 1990. Because of
Polish archaeological research on ancient
Christian Nubia, the Conference sought in part
to consider historical artistic relations between
Ethiopia and Sudan.
The Third Conference, differed from its
predecessors in that it was the first to be held
in Ethiopia, and therefore had a much larger
Ethiopian participation. It was also a media
event, opened by the Ethiopian Minister of
Culture, Ato Leulsellassie Temamo, and
extensively covered in the Ethiopia media,
thereby, introducing the Ethiopian public,
including students, to the importance of the
country's art history. The gathering was
attended by scholars from the United States,
Canada, Britain, Italy, Germany, Switzerland,
Poland, Sweden, Kenya and Israel, besides
Ethiopia itself.
On the eve of the Conference participants
visited the studio of Ethiopia's foremost artist,
Maitre-Artiste Laureate Afewerk Tekld, who
gave them a lengthy tour of his studio and
discussed many of his paintings in detail.
Tuesday, November 9th-The Conference
began, after the official opening, by
considering classical Ethiopian art. Speakers
included Stanislaw Chojnacki, the former
Curator of the Institute of Ethiopian Studies
Museum and perhaps the foremost
international historian of Ethiopian art. He
spoke on the "Harrowing of Hell in 14th to
18th Century Ethiopian Art." The next paper
was by Bent Juel-Jensen of Oxford University,

who considered whether a copy of the Gospels
printed in Italy in 1548 influenced subsequent
Ethiopian manuscript illustration. Jacques
Mercier, of Paris, spoke on Ethiopian magical
scrolls and presented a number of them to the
Institute Museum. Another paper, by Kirsten
Pedersen, of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church
in Jerusalem, was on the Kwer'ata Re'esu, or
icon of Christ with the Crown of Thorns,
while Ewa Balicka-Witakowska, of the
University of Uppsala, spoke on an
illuminated Book of the Gospels. Historical
questions related to harag, the creeper-like
decoration found in traditional Ethiopian
manuscripts, were then discussed by Carla
Zanotti, an Italian scholar at the Institute of
Ethiopian Studies.
The conference then turned to a discussion
of Ethiopian manuscripts, with contributions by
Ato Demeke Berhane, a librarian of the
Institute of Ethiopian Studies. This was
followed by a paper on "Ethiopian Script as
Part of Ethiopian Art History," presented by
Sigbert Uhlig, of the University of Hamburg.
The conference then looked at Ethiopia's
cultural heritage in specific regions, with Ato
Girma Elias, of the Ethiopian Ministry of
Culture, speaking on Tigray, Diana Spencer, of
Oxford, on Gondar region, and Ian Campbell,
of Nairobi, on Shewa. Another paper in this
section was by a German professor, Brigitta
Benzing, on "The Art and Symbolism of the
Ethiopian Hand-Cross."
An exhibition of traditional Ethiopian
church art, by Berhanie Gabre Sellassie, of
Aksum, was mounted throughout the day. The
day's work was followed by a visit to a newly
established private gallery, St. George Gallery,
whose manager, Saba Ellene, gave participants
the opportunity to meet a number of modern
Ethiopian artists.
Wednesday, November 10th-The
Conference's second day was devoted to
Popular and Modern Art. Elizabeth Biasio, of
the Ziirich Ethnological Museum, discussed
whether such art should be described as
Traditional, Popular or Folk. This theme was
also explored by Professor Benzing. Other
speakers included Richard Pankhurst, who
presented paintings of Emperor Menelik's
court artist Aleqa Elias, as well as a newly
identified traditional painting of Emperor
Tewodros and the Battle of Maqdala; and Ato
Girma Fisseha, of the Munich Ethnological
Museum, discussed the work of an important
traditional Ethiopian artist Frd Heywet.

ACASA Newsletter / No. 39, April 1994 11

Modern Ethiopian art was then addressed
in several papers- notably by Achamyeleh
Debela of North Carolina Central University,
who spoke on "A Pioneer in Spite of the
Odds: the Life and Career of Ethiopian Artist
Gabre Kristos Desta (1932-1981)." Modern
Ethiopian artist Ato Leul Sellassie Retta then
gave a reflective paper on his own work.
Another artist, Ato Taye Tadesse, of the
Institute of Ethiopian Studies, considered "Arts
and Crafts Education in Ethiopian Elementary
The Conference then turned to art in the
service of diplomacy and politics. A paper by
Rita Pankhurst on a letter from King Menelek
of Ethiopia to Queen Victoria, was followed
by one by Daniel Desalegn on a seal produced
by Ethiopian artist Emailaf Herouy for the
Ethiopian Patriots of the anti-fascist resistance
of 1936-1941. There were two contributions
on Post-Revolutionary Art, one by Ethiopian
art historian Seyoum Wolde, who sadly passed
away a few days later, the other by Berit
Sahlstrom of the University of Uppsala,
Sweden. The next two papers, by Paul Henze,
of the Rand Corporation in Washington, and
by Alula Pankhurst, of Addis Ababa
University's Sociology Department, dealt with
the political art of the present political regime.
An exhibition of modern art, by Taye Tadesse,
of the Institute of Ethiopian Studies, was also
staged. The day's work was followed by a
visit to the Ethiopian National Museum, to see
an exhibition artistic by modern Ethiopian
artist Gosh Wolde, on the theme Unity and
Thursday, November 11th-The last day
of the conference dealt with Architecture and
Handicrafts. Ato Jar Wolde Maria, of the
Ministry of Culture, discussed Harari
architecture. LeVerle Berry, of the Library of
Congress, Washington, DC, considered the
importance and influence of the late
seventeenth century castle of Guzara, and Ian
Campbell, of Nairobi, examined the history of
a so-called "Portuguese bridge," near Debra
Libanos, which had in fact been built by a
late nineteenth century Ethiopian nobleman.
The next two papers were presented by
faculty members of Addis Ababa University's
College of Technology. Ato Elias Yitbarek
spoke on the traditional Gurag6 house, while
artist-architect Ato Fassil Georgis considered
the old-style buildings of Addis Ababa, several
of which are currently in danger of
destruction. Ato Shifferaw Bekele, of Addis

Ababa University's History Department, spoke
on the "Symbolism of its Arches in Ethiopian
Culture," and Paul Henze gave a paper on an
entirely newly built rock-hewn church in Tegrd.
The last section was on handicrafts. It
opened with a paper, by Ray Silverman of
Michigan State University, challenging the
traditional rigid division between fine art and
handicrafts. A remarkable Gondar tapestry
looted by the British expedition of 1867-1868
was then discussed by two separate scholars,
Michael Gervers, of the University of Toronto
and Ewa Balicka-Witakowska. There was also
a paper by Ato Worku Nida, of the Ministry
of Culture, and Alula Pankhurst, on "The Art
of the Fuga in Gurageland." In conclusion
Kassai Begashaw spoke on the work and
objectives of the Ministry of Culture's Center
for Research and Cultural Heritage.
At the business meeting a strong resolution
was passed, urging the Ethiopian Government
to intensify its efforts to preserve the national
culture, demanding that a list of historic
buildings be drawn up an published, and
urging that the School of Fine Arts be
encouraged to teach the history of Ethiopian
art, and be upgraded to college level. An
exhibition of Harari handicrafts by Woizero
Fatima was staged. The conference ended with
a visit to the School of Fine Arts, a concert
at the University's Cultural Center, and two
receptions, one by the Minister of Culture,
and the other by the Institute of Ethiopian
Studies's Director, Bahru Zewdie.

The International Centre for African Music
and Dance was established at the University
of Ghana in the 1992-1993 academic year to
serve as a focus for the development of
materials and programs in African music and
dance that meet the needs of scholars,

research students and creative artist. It is
* to provide a forum for international
meetings, conferences, seminars, workshops
and special events in African music and
* to serve as an Archival, Documentation and
Study Center for African music and dance;
* to promote and co-ordinate research,
creative and development projects in music
and dance;
* to prepare and publish monographs, source
materials, bibliographies and an
international journal of African music and
dance; and
* to serve as a clearinghouse for information
on events, artists, scholars and institutions
concerned with the study and promotion of
African music and dance.
The Centre operates as a unit within the
School of Performing Arts which offers
diploma and degree courses of the University
of Ghana in music, dance, drama and theater
studies. In addition to participation in the
Centre's programs, visiting scholars and
students affiliated to the Centre will be able to
avail themselves of the classes and private
lessons in African music and dance given by
the traditional musicians and dance instructors
of the School as well as the facilities of the
reference library of the Institute of African
The proposal to establish the International
Centre for African Music and Dance arose out
of the need expressed by scholars for a forum
that would give full scope for dealing with
problems in the study of African music and
dance. An international Centre for African
Music and Dance can provide opportunities for
bringing African scholars and their colleagues
together and thus promote insider-outsider
dialogue in the critical areas of analysis and
interpretation. The proposal was subsequently
endorsed by an international group of scholars
who met at the Rockefeller Study and
Conference Centre in Bellagio, Italy, from
October 12-16, 1992 to review the present
state and potential of research in African
music and dance with a view to working out a
plan for dealing with lacunae and the
systematic study of the field as well as a

strategy for future international co-operation in
research and related programs.
Activities and Programs of the Centre.
The Centre will collaborate with relevant
departments of the School of Performing Arts
and the Institute of African Studies in the
establishment of graduate programs in
ethnomusicology and dance studies that meet
the needs of Africa. To encourage participation
in this program, a few scholarships will be
provided to enable qualifies students from
African countries to pursue graduate and
diploma studies in these fields at the
University of Ghana. To enable scholars and
creative artists from other African countries to
contribute to this program or use the facilities
of the Centre for research and writing or
presentations, provision has also been made
for a few visiting Fellowships.
International Conferences and Meetings.
Conferences and workshops organized by the
Centre fall into two groups: (1) General
conferences for the presentation and discussion
of papers on selected themes and reports on
on-going projects, and (2) small meeting for
specialist in particular fields such as
composition, music education, choreography,
or those planing collaborative projects in
research or some particular sphere of cultural
action. In addition, special lecture series,
music and dance events (including programs
designed to stimulate the creation of new
works or provide a forum for audiences to
meet composers, choreographers and
outstanding creative performers) will be
arranged at the Centre from time to time.
The Centre hopes to make Africa also a
repository for such materials by acquiring
copies of early recordings of African music in
American and European Archives with which
it hopes to establish international links. In
addition to recordings, the Centre will develop
a library of reference materials.
Publication Program. The publication of
research findings, collections of essays on
African music and dance, the dissemination of
information through a newsletter and a journal
will be a major task of the Centre. In
accordance with the recommendations of the
Bellagio Conference, the Centre will give
priority to the preparation and editing of the
Bellagio conference papers for publication, and
the completion of the Africa Volume of the
Universe of Music: A History.

the art workshop in Oye Ekiti which
flourished between 1947 and 1956. This
workshop produced sacred images exclusively
for the Catholic Mission in southwestern
Nigeria and also nurtured the artistic career of

Lamidi Fakeye amongst others. Father
Carroll's efforts revolutionized the encounters
of Yoruba art and culture with Western
religion and radically altered the skepticism
that had hitherto attended the perception and
reception of Yoruba art in general.
Solicited papers will cover these themes:
1. Encounters of traditional African art and
culture with the West: myths and realities; 2.
Art in the service of religion; 3. Yoruba art
and humanism; 4. Techniques and practices of
traditional wood carving; 5. Stylistic patterns
and trends; 6. Evolution of contemporary
Yoruba art; 7. The "traditional" artist and
contemporary classification; 8. Christianity in
other cultures; 9. Yoruba art and
internationalism; 10. Commodification of
Yoruba art; 11. Workshop artists; 12. Father
Kevin Carroll: a biography; 13. Evaluation of
the Oye Ekiti workshop. Proceedings of this
seminar will be published. For information

"Digging in the Dirt." Excerpted from The
Independent (UK) January 25, 1994. David
Keys reports on new examinations of
10,000-mile-long earthen ramparts in southern
Nigeria. A British archaeologist is trying to
uncover the secrets of the world's
second-largest man-made structure (after
China's Great Walls) a 10,000-mile-long
series of earthen ramparts, half-hidden within
the rainforests of Nigeria. The vast complex
the most extensive earthwork system in the
world covers 2,500 square miles and
consists of more than 500 inter-connected
communal enclosures, according to survey
work being carried out by Patrick Darling.
Using archaelolgical, historical and
linguistic evidence, he estimates that most of
the complex was built progressively over a
450-650 year period from between 800 and
1000 AD up until the late fifteenth century,
when much of the area was conquered by a
local African power later known as the Benin
Empire. Many of the communal enclosures are
around twenty miles in circumference,
although some are much larger, up to seventy
miles long. On average, the ramparts tend to
be around ten feet high (from bottom of ditch
to top of bank), although some rise to around
sixty feet. So far Darling, now funded by the

ACASA Newsletter / No. 39, April 1994 15

British Academy, has-made a detailed plan of
around ten per cent of the complex.
Mystery of Medieval Earthworks-The
precise reason why medieval West Africans
built the earthworks remains a mystery.
However, Darling is developing a series of
possible explanations. He thinks it probable
that the earthworks functioned as communal
boundaries, delineating the agricultural land
belonging to local extended families and
lineage groups. He therefore believes that the
boundaries defined communities of related
individuals who were not allowed to
intermarry. Men had to continue living within
the ramparts after marriage, while the
community's womenfolk were obliged to marry
men from beyond the ramparts, and thus move
to other enclosures.
The earthworks, which are estimated to
have taken 150 million man-hours to build,
also probably functioned as a communal status
symbol. Darling's survey has revealed that the
ramparts become more impressive closer to
entranceways. He also suspects that the banks
and ditches may at some stage have acted in
ritual terms, as a symbolic boundary between
the real world and the spirit one. Historical
research has revealed that hundreds of years
ago the corpses of childless men were placed
in the boundary ditches literally between
this world and the next.
The ramparts appear to have been built by
a West African people known as the Edo,
initially either after emigrating from grassland
areas in central Nigeria, or in response to
settlement pressure from Igbo immigrants from
the east. Although most of the earthwork
construction activity ceased with the Benin
conquest in about 1480, some communities
fled to other areas and continued the tradition
there. Around thirty per cent of the
earthworks fall into this category.
Benin Empire-But the rulers of the
Benin Empire also appear to have adapted the
earthwork concept for their own use. Around
every ten miles along the major trade routes,
the Benin obas appear to have built small
earthen enclosures. Strangely, these have their
ditches on the inside of their banks rather than
on the outside, and it is likely that they were
used by the Benin imperial government to
house batches of slaves after a day's march.
Much of Benin's economy and security
was based on taking people from neighboring
areas against their will, and forcing them into
slavery (known as "slave raiding"). For a

period, the obas banned the sale of slaves to
Europeans, because they wanted them
themselves. The empire used slave raiding to
increase its population, expand existing
communities, build up its army, and to settle
new agricultural land, thus producing increased
tribute for the emperor. These slaves were
actually known euphemistically as "children of
the oba," and their introduction into society
on a large scale destroyed the traditional
lineage-based system and reinforced central
control. The oba ruled from his palace in
Benin City, which was then the capital of the
However, Darling's study of the city's vast
communal earthworks suggests that they date
from before the birth of the Benin kingdom
from which the empire evolved. New
examinations of the 60-feet-high Benin
ramparts show that they were merely a part of
the original early earthwork system, which
suggests that an important political and
religious center developed there before it was
conquered by the founders of the Benin
kingdom and empire.

Illicit Export of Cultural Property. Pillaging
and the illicit export of cultural property is a

professionals are finding difficult to combat
alone. ICOM held a regional workshop on the

UNESCO, the Norwegian Agency for
Development Cooperation, and the Swedish
International Development Authority, included
museum professionals, police officers, and
customs authorities.
Approximately fifty professionals from
seventeen African countries met in three
working groups to define possible alliances for
regional cooperation, discuss new strategies for
research and collection of information, and
highlight new ways to alert communities to the
need to protect their heritage.
Workshop participants launched an appeal
to the international museum community to halt
the hemorrhaging of the African heritage.
They drafted a two-part policy to encourage
the development of systematic inventories of
heritage in and out of museums, emphasized
the need for visual documentation, and
strongly advocated that large art-importing
nations follow the U.S. example by ratifying
UNESCO's 1970 Convention on the Means of
Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import,
Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural

Documentation Standards and the Protection
of Cultural Property. The Art History
Information Program (AHIP) of the J. Paul
Getty Trust has launched a multiyear
international project to develop a
documentation standard for the identification of
cultural objects. Such a standard would play a
vital role in the protection of the world's
cultural heritage by simplifying the exchange

of information among law enforcement
agencies, museums, and others.
In July 1993 AHIP convened a meeting to
discuss the project with officials from the
Conference on Security and Cooperation in
Europe, the Council of Europe Division of
Cultural Heritage, the International Council of
Museums, UNESCO, and the USIA.
Participants agreed to move forward with the
project, which will culminate in 1996 in an
international conference on documentation
standards and the protection of cultural
property. In addition, AHIP will collaborate
with the Getty Conservation Institute to
develop an international working group on
documentation used in the conservation
profession. A meeting of this group, planned
for 1994, will focus on the minimum
information needed by the conservation
community for the unique identification of
cultural objects.

Zambia National Visual Arts Council.
Zambia's Visual Arts Council (VAC) was
founded in 1989 as a non-profit organization
to assist in the development and promotion of
the visual arts in Zambia and to provide a
structure through which government and other
interested parties are able to gauge the needs
and views of artists to better assist.
Headquartered in Lusaka, VAC has formed
four branches in the Copperbelt, Southern,
Western and Eastern Provinces.
VAC organizes various activities ranging
from art workshops, exhibitions, and seminars,
solely and jointly with other arts organizations.
Recent activities include the 1992 Christian
Images Art Workshop; The 1993 Women
Artists Workshop sponsored by the Norwegian
Agency for International Development
(NORAD) and the USIS-Lusaka; and the
Zambian art exhibition in Beijing, China. The
VAC Eastern Provincial Branch has just held a
Women Artists' exhibition in Chipata, which
coincided with the annual traditional ceremony
called N'cwala, a Ngoni dance. The VAC
Western Provincial Branch is preparing for its
second art exhibition to coincide with the
traditional Lozi ceremony called Kuomboka.
One of VAC's major projects over the past
two years has been the renovations of the

Zambia's rock art heritage retrieved /
submitted by Lunda F. J. Sinkamba (National
Heritage Conservation Commission,
Livingstone, Zambia). In its quest for more
archaeological heritage and pursuance of its
1989 Act, National Heritage Conservation
Commission team consisting of Lunda
Sinkamba, an archaeologist, and Billiard
Lishiko, an archaeological assistant, conducted
a survey on rock art in Kasama District,
Northern Province, with a view to ascertain
the population that could have been responsible
for the execution of the rock art and to locate
and record all the sites as part of a cultural
During the survey, over five hundred sites
were located and recorded whose paintings
were naturalistic and schematic styles executed
on smooth surfaces of rock-shelters and
boulders. The paintings in the schematic style
and whose subjects were abstract designs of
various geometrical shapes were more
numerous than those in naturalistic style
presented in subjects of animal (zoomorphs)
and human (anthropomorphs) figures. Of all
designs, dots, which could have been made by
using either fingers or soft brush, were the
majority as these manifested themselves
literally at every site. The paintings have been
attributed to the works of Late Stone Age and
Iron Age cultures, though the schematic
paintings with their manifestation of
superimposing the naturalistic works are
indicative of recency and, therefore, have a
stronger bias towards execution by the Iron
Age peoples.
Pottery found on some sites had decorative
characteristics of comb stamping, criss-cross
hatching, single stamping impression, and
oblique comb-stamping on the lips, which
were suggestive of the Kalambo style. The
rock art heritage particularly in Mwela,
Sumina and Mwankole sites has been
threatened by developmental projects and
human vandalism through graffiti. Large and
small scale quarrying has greatly destroyed
rock art. The National Heritage Conservation
Commission has instituted necessary steps to
stop the scourge by advising the Ministry of
Mines and the Ministry of local Government
through the Local Council to revoke the
mining licenses and stop allocating land with
rock art heritage for purposes of quarrying.

as a research facility in which scholars and
students of the cinema of Africa and the
African Diaspora will be able to do research
on African and African Diaspora films.
Currently, there is no facility containing
African and African Diaspora films in which
scholars can have access to films and related
research materials, can view the films at their
leisure, and can complete research projects.
With resources made available from various

funding sources, it will be possible to offer
grants of one or two months to visiting
scholars for the puropses of supporting their
research at the ACP at MSU; 5. facilitate the
distribution of African films not generally
available in the commercial circuit. The
distribution is not for profit, and its primary
target will be educational institutions,
especially universities with relevant film
courses; 6. transform videos into NTSC
format for use in American video players, and
will place subtitles on foreign language films.
There are also a number of African films that
are in a condition of deterioration (e.g., in the
cindmath6que at the French Cultural Center in
Dakar). The ACP will attempt to obtain copies
of these films and restore them; 7. facilitate
the study of African cinema by maintaining a
linkage with sister centers abroad-especially
in Paris, London, and Ouagadougou. It will
create a joint database with the Mediathdque
des Trois Mondes and the African Film
Center in Ouagadougou and will work
cooperatively with the British Film Institute. It
will seek a close relationship with AUDECAM
in Paris; 8. seek to publish a newsletter or
journal devoted to the study of African cinema.
Affiliations: The project will be housed
and managed at MSU. In cooperation with
sister institutions, the project will establish
fruitful collaborative activities and linkages,
including the possibility of duplicate archival
centers housing videos, databases, and other
relevant materials. The project will seek
affiliation with any university involved in the
study or teaching of African cinema and will
welcome the sharing of materials as well as
research projects undertaken by those in
affiliated institutions. For more information,

English, Morrill Hall, MSU, East Lansing, MI

traditions of Ethiopia, is scheduled to open at
Michigan State University (MSU) in July 1994
in conjunction with the Twelfth International
Conference of Ethiopian Studies. Ray
Silverman, project director and curator,
travelled to Ethiopia in April 1993 to conduct
research for this exhibition. The exhibition
will feature about three hundred artifacts from
European, Ethiopian, and North American
museums and private collections as well as
material recently collected in Ethiopia
specifically for the exhibit. Artifacts will focus
on the works and lives of living artists and
artisans representing various Ethiopian aesthetic
Documentary video and audio recordings
and still photography will allow visitors to
meet the artists and learn about the traditions
from historical and cultural perspectives. This
multimedia display will echo a new vision
emerging in Ethiopia that recognizes the
country's ethnic and cultural diversity. The
exhibition will travel to other locations in the
U.S. before it finally moves to the Museum of
the Institute of Ethiopian Studies at Addis
Ababa University.

Symposium in honor of Roy Sieber, Indiana
University, February 25-26, 1994. Despite the
forbidding Midwest winter weather colleagues,
students and friends gathered at Indiana
University on February 25-26, 1994 to honor
Professor Roy Sieber as a scholar, teacher,
mentor and colleague. This gala celebration
was an affirmation of Roy Sieber's life-long
dedication to the study of African art and a
recognition of his important influence on and
his ground-breaking contributions to the
development and growth of African art studies
in the United States over the past four
decades. At the various formal receptions and
dinners accolades for Roy and Sophie Sieber
were warmly and sincerely given and
graciously received.
One of the highlights of the event was a
symposium "African Art Celebrates Life"
organized by the Henry Radford Hope School
of Fine Arts in honor of Roy Sieber. The
symposium included four stimulating papers.
Robert Farris Thompson gave the keynote
paper, "The Script of the Sun: Kongo Atlantic
Philosophy and Art," which highlighted Kongo
philosophical and artistic legacies in
contemporary African Diaspora arts and
culture in the Americas. Eugenia Herbert's

ACASA Newsletter / No. 39, April 1994 23

paTper, "Music and the Birth of Metals," was
an overview of the important role that gender
plays in defining both music and musical
instruments that are used during the production
of metal throughout Africa. Kate Ezra's paper,
"Creating the Canon: Collecting African Art
at the Museum of Primitive Art (1955-1975),"
traced the development and influence of this
important museum collection of African Art
and analyzed specific philosophical and
aesthetic attitudes towards art that contributed
to shaping this museum collection over two
decades. Nii Quarcoopome presented a paper
entitled "Reviewing the Kpledzo Festival of
Prampram Town: Art and the Politics of
Ritual." In the paper he analyzed the various
transformations within this festival over the
past thirty years drawing upon both Roy
Sieber's documentation of the festival in the
late 1950s and his own study of the festival at
Prampram Town in the 1980s. -submitted by
