@ Presidential Notes

Conferences .... It is one of the pleasures and du-
ties (some would say unavoidable chore) in our
field to attend conferences and as we all have
observed they come in different forms, shapes,
and sizes. Last year's large African Studies Asso-
ciation Conference in New Orleans seemed to suf-
fer a bit from low attendance and there were few
art panels, no doubt the result of conference over-
load, because the Triennial Symposium on African
Art had taken place only half a year earlier. This
year's ASA meeting in Washington, DC, promises
to bring a bumper crop of those interested in the
visual arts to the Nation's capital. After all, Wash-
ington is the home of the Smithsonian Institution,
a big draw for us.

Another major upcoming conference with panels on
African arts, literature, and film has provoked an
enthusiastic response. It is the first ever European
Conference on African Studies organized by Africa-
Europe Group for Interdisciplinary Studies
(AEGIS), which will take place in London at the end
of June. I guess it is superfluous to mention the
exact dates, because one can no longer sign up for
it, anyway. The organizers had to close registration
by mid-May due to intense interest and limited
space. The challenging program, which has a
slightly different, European flavor, and the venue of
the conference may have helped. Who would not
want to go to London, visit the British Museum,
many of the other collections and displays, and
enjoy some of the activities of Africa 05, a yearlong
celebration of African and Diaspora art and culture.

But is bigger better? Perhaps the best proof that
small, short, and focused conferences can have a
major impact was a recent event in New York at-
tended by an amazing number of colleagues from
the entire East Coast. Susan Vogel, now Professor
of African Art and Architecture at Columbia Univer-
sity, called the one-day symposium to check the
pulse of the discipline. Emerging Scholarship in
African Art brought a fine roster of emerging and
"emerged" scholars to the Department of Art His-
tory at Columbia's Schermerhorn Hall. The theme
of the international symposium emphasized the
ongoing changes and paradigm shifts in our field,
which have been particularly pronounced in recent
years, as the study of the "classical arts of Africa"
seems to be receding and scholars increasingly
focus on contemporary and diasporic arts, a


ACASA







development that became most obvious during the
last Triennial Symposium on African Art.

Presentations ranged from Randall Bird's "The
Power of Landscape in 19th-century Highlands
Madagascar," which opened the day with an inno-
vative topic that fifteen years ago would not have
been considered, to Sylvester Okwunodu Ogbe-
chie's passionate "The Historical Life of Objects:
African Art and the Problem of Discursive Obso-
lence," in which he made a plea for the careful po-
sitioning and restudy of work done by earlier gen-
erations of scholars. There were many highlights
in this tightly organized day. In his presentation
"Symptoms and Strangeness in Yoruba Anti-
Aesthetics" David T. Doris impressed the audience
not only with his novel approach, but also with the
power of polished, elegant speech. Polly Rich-
ards, all the way from London, discussed Dogon
masks in a changing world, while Till F6rster from
Basel examined "Intermediality and Changing
Practices of Visual Arts in Northern C6te d'lvoire,"
with a smattering of data from his other research
site in Cameroon. Eli Bentor, Sarah Adams,
Monica Blackmun Visona, and John M. Peffer
closed out the roster. Jonathan Hay of Columbia
University and Enid Schildkrout, the recently ap-
pointed Chief Curator at the Museum for African Art
who has made many important contributions over
the years one need only think of her seminal
catalog African Reflections ably moderated the
sessions. The presentations accomplished exactly
what Susan Vogel had set out to do they brought
into sharp focus the dynamic and changing nature
of our field. One can only hope that the papers will
be published.

In the meantime, an organizing committee and
members of the ACASA board are already busily at
work planning the Fourteenth Triennial Symposium
on African Art, which will take place at the Univer-
sity at Florida in Gainesville in the Spring of 2007.
Victoria Rovine, who recently moved the University
of Florida, has kindly accepted to be the Program
chair. Rebecca Nagy, Robin Poynor, and Susan
Cooksey are on the planning team. Thus, the next
Triennial should be another memorable confer-
ence...



Im Message from the Editor

As always, I am most grateful to Harn Museum of
Art associate curator of African art, Susan Cook-
sey, curatorial secretary Melody Record, and
graphic designer Tami Wroath for their kind assis-
tance in production of this Newsletter and in for-
matting and dissemination of the electronic version
to courtesy members in Africa and the Caribbean.

quests for information about the history of ACASA
and in providing copies of back issues to members,
we are working to assemble a complete run of
ACASA Newsletters, which can be scanned for use
by present and future Newsletter editors. We are
seeking copies of the following Newsletters: 1 50,
54, 55, 56, 58, 61 and 62. If you have copies of
these issues and are willing to lend them to be
scanned by Newsletter editors, please notify Mel-
ody Record by email: mrecord@harn.ufl.edu.

6Z4 Exhibitions


Painting Ethiopia: The Life and Work of Qes
Adamu Tesfaw at the UCLA Fowler Museum

This exhibition opened March 6, 2005 to big
crowds at the UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural
History, including a large contingent of local LA
Ethiopian-Americans. The exhibition explores the
innovative paintings of 72-year-old artist Qes







Adamu Tesfaw, an Ethiopian painter-schooled inr-
the philosophy and aesthetics of a 1500-year-old
tradition associated with the Ethiopian Orthodox
Church. Adamu left the priesthood at the age of 30
to turn to painting full-time, finding the freedom to
venture beyond religious subject matter and to de-
velop a style all his own. The exhibition is organ-
ized by the UCLA Fowler Museum in collaboration
with the Institute of Ethiopian Studies, Addis Ababa
University, and is guest curated by Raymond
Silverman, professor of Art History and Afroameri-
can & African Studies at the University of Michigan.

After closing at the UCLA Fowler Museum, the ex-
hibition will travel to the Birmingham Museum of Art
and will be on view from February 5th through April
23, 2006. Additional tour dates in the USA are
available through Fall 2007. The tour will close with
a showing at the Institute of Ethiopian Studies, Ad-
dis Ababa University. To book the exhibition please

Sense, Style, Presence: African Arts of Personal
Adornment

Ham Museum of Art
University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida
November 9, 2004 June 2006
Curator: Susan Cooksey

Sense, Style, Presence: African Arts of Personal
Adornment explores a range of African objects and
modes of personal adornment. "Adorn" refers to
what is used for two essential approaches to dress-
ing the body. It includes both extending the dimen-
sions, color and textures of the body through gar-
ments, jewelry, and other accoutrements, and
modifying the shape and texture of the skin and
hair. Objects in the exhibition demonstrate how
extending and modifying the body are construed as
enhancements of individual appearance, and also
convey important information about the wearer.
They also illustrate that the adorned human form,
with all that is attached to it, covers it, or inscribed
on its surface, acquire layers of meaning that tran-
scend the purely visual.

The exhibition addresses the question of what
forces shape the process of adorning the body in
African societies. Objects in the exhibition reveal
that dress styles are affected by various combina-
tions of historical, social, political and personal fac-
tors. Many of the selected objects support political
hierarchies, for example, whereas others reflect
social status and individual aesthetics.


The installation includes objects from west, east,
central and south Africa made with a variety of me-
diums: metalwork, textiles; wood; beadwork; fibers
and modern synthetic materials such as plastics.
Several objects are on loan from the Fowler Mu-
seum of Cultural History, UCLA and the Hood Mu-
seum of Art at Dartmouth College and private U.S.
collections. Six major areas are highlighted in the
exhibition. The wide variety of garments, jewelry
and accoutrements attest to the inventiveness and
technical skill of African artists in enhancing the
human form.

A 32 page color catalogue including essays by Pat
Darish, Robin Poynor, Doran Ross and Victoria
Rovine accompanies the exhibition. For more infor-
mation about the exhibition please contact the Harn
Museum at (352) 392-9826.

This installation was made possible by the Museum
Loan Network-a program funded and initiated by
the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and
the Pew Charitable Trusts, and administered by
MIT's Office of the Arts.


Stitching History: Patchwork Quilts by Africans
in India

Curated by Henry Drewal, this exhibition of quilts
by African (Siddi) women in India will open at the
Design Gallery, School of Human Ecology, Univer-
sity of Wisconsin-Madison on August 26, 2005 and
be on view until September 25, 2005. The curator
will give a talk at the closing reception on Sunday,
September 25 at 2 pm. The Siddi women of three
villages have formed a Siddi Women's Quilting Co-
operative and are raising funds from the sale of
their quilts.
For those interested in supporting this project, ar-
ranging an exhibition, or purchasing quilts, please

El Anatsui : GAWU

Ham Museum of Art
University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida
August 16-October 16, 2005
Organized by Oriel Mostyn Gallery,Wales
Curator: Martin Barlow

"Gawu," as the artist states, is a word combining
allusions to metal and references to a fashioned
cloak. In this exhibition featuring seven of El Ana-
tsui's latest sculptures, the artist has fashioned
both garments and other architectonic forms from
scraps of metal and cloth. Four of the new works
are inspired by West African textile traditions such
as kente and adinkra, and re-present their opu-







lence, histories, and cultural meanings. These
"cloths" made primarily from bottle caps, gin bottle
tops and wire, are both monumental and ephem-
eral. Three other objects in the exhibition, made
from discarded cans, printing plates, and roofing tin
are abstracted constructions, that serve as em-
blems of transformation through elemental natural
forces, and may also be seen as commentary on
contemporary consumer culture. Similar works
have recently toured major European venues, and
are installed in the British Museum. The Ham Mu-
seum will be the only U.S. venue for this exhibition.


Traveling Exhibitions from the Museum for
African Art

The Museum of African Art's new building, de-
signed by Robert A.M. Stern, will soon become a
tangible reality at the corner of Fifth Avenue and
110u Street on New York's legendary Museum
Mile. Twenty-three years after the founding of the
museum, it will move in late 2007 into a permanent
space. The museum looks forward to expanding its
activities, building a collection and serving a wider
audience. In the meanwhile, the museum maintains
an active exhibition schedule and announces the
following traveling exhibitions:

AfroCuba: Works on Paper, 1968 2003

This exhibition curated by Professor Judith Bettel-
heim represents the culmination of three years of
work by Bettelheim and a host of students in the
Art Department at San Francisco State University.
Several trips to Cuba were made to research the
production of prints and drawings. An 88 page full
color catalogue contextualizes six groupings of
these works, drawn from both Havana and Santi-
ago de Cuba studios. The catalogue provides the
biographies behind a selection of portraits and new
information about black artist collectives, Cuban
involvement in Angola, the relationship of the art to
religious iconography, and aspects of the explosion
of contemporary art during the 1990s.

The exhibition, which is currently touring and avail-
able, is circulated by Curatorial Assistance. The
catalogue is distributed by the University of Wash-
ington Press.

hawks, lepers, dwarfs, serpents, and other spiri-
tual beings. The film is full of men and women
who participate enthusiastically in an exciting and
visually stunning celebration of their spirituality.

A Year in the Life of an African Family

The Bamogo family of northern Burkina Faso raise

beer, attend a ceremony of the local chief, grind
millet on a stone grindstone, watch a diviner per-
form wearing a mask, attend a large public festi-
val, and plant the new crop in the spring. There is
a nice African "voice" to this, since it was filmed by
videographer Jacob Bamogo, a member of the
family. Go to http://www.customflix.com/206928

which will explore trans-Saharan artistic contacts
from a trans-national and post-area studies per-
spective. Africa has traditionally been viewed
through a bifocal lens, in which the Sahara has
been perceived as an impenetrable barrier, dividing
the continent into northern and sub-Saharan Africa.
Countries in the north continue to be considered
within the domain of Islamic, Middle Eastern, Clas-
sical and Ancient Egyptian studies having little or
no artistic contact with sub-Saharan countries con-
sidered more authentically "African".

Scholars have failed to recognize that communica-
tion, correspondence, trade and travel, in partner-
ship with nomadic movements across the Sahara,
have been going on for several millenia. This inter-
course among traders, scholars, artisans and
nomads set the stage for the emergence of richly







diverse aesthetic expressions both along the web
of routes crossing the Sahara as well as at their
terminii.

Papers should address the methodological, con-
ceptual, stylistic or technical aspects of artistic
creativity and performance, either contemporary or
historic, which reflect aspects of this artistic dis-
course and/or which illustrate how the Sahara was/
is a porous boundary, a bridge rather than a bar-
rier, for the transmission and exchange of arts and
culture.

Final essays, between 6000-8000 words plus illus-
trations, will be due on October 1, 2005.
Email title, an abstract (c. 200 words) and a CV to
either Cynthia Becker or Labelle Prussin by June 1,
2005.

Interrogating The Meanings And Practices of
African Political Thought

York University's African Studies Program and the
Graduate Program in Social and Political Thought
are convening a two day conference on African
Political Thought for October 14th and 15th of
2005.

The purpose of the conference is to foster ex-
changes on the multiple possible meanings of and
relationships between African Political thought and
other, related domains. What are their kinships,
and where do the lines of the distinctiveness of Af-
rican Philosophy begin and the demarcations for
African Political thought end? What is distinctly
African about diasporic or Africana thought?

Conference Themes:
* The Status of African Political Thought and its
Relationship to African Philosophy, Sacred Texts,
and Political Visions
* Literature
* African Social & Political Thought
* Legal Regimes, Gender, History and African
Political Thought

Please send abstracts of papers to:
Centime Zeleke (centime@yorku.ca
) by August 19th.

For more information, please contact:
Program secretary, Roberta Parris

I Obituaries


Emmanuel Arinze

Emmanuel was an immense figure in the museum
world, not only for Nigeria, where his played a tre-
mendous role over the years, but also for the whole
African Continent. From the seventies, Emmanuel
Arinze was on the very forefront of all the major
initiatives aiming at strengthening / promoting the
development of museums and heritage manage-
ment in Africa, for the benefit of the peoples.

He was one of the active founders of the Organiza-
tion for Museums, Monuments and Sites of Africa
(OMMSA), and fought a long time for the survival of
that organization. He was also an energetic and
wise activist in the issues of fighting the illicit export
and traffic of African Cultural Property. During the
eighties and the nineties he was one of the great
promoters of the West African Museums Pro-
gramme (WAMP), where we worked hard with him
and the late Philip Ravenhill to establish as an in-
ternational NGO. He became a founding member
of the independent WAMP in Dakar, and its first
Chairman. He was also a founding member of AF-
RICOM in Lusaka 1999, and was elected AFRI-
COM Chairman in 2003.

Also, Emmanuel was hugely instrumental in the
birth and in the development of the International
Centre for Conservation (ICCROM). He played a
major role in conducting the feasibility study of Pre-
vention in Museums in Africa (PREMA) in 1988,
and later contributed a lot to the programme.

One cannot over emphasize Emmanuel's role in
the development of the Nigerian museums from the
seventies up to the nineties. His professionalism
and authority probably have saved the museum
system in Nigeria from collapsing at that time. The
situation of the NCMM heavily deteriorated when
he was forced to leave in the early nineties.

Arinze was not only a sharp professional, but he
had also a healthy vision, and was able to immedi-
ately identify the positive potentials as well as the
risks in a new development. He believed in the
huge potential of African museums' contribution to
public development in Africa. He was a champion
in the different initiatives to overcome the major
challenges and problems standing for museum de-
velopment in Africa.

Finally, Emmanuel was a wise, open minded and
dedicated leader and professional, a nice and
pleasant colleague. He had an immense authority


among the museum professionals in Africa and
beyond. His death is a huge loss. And I have lost a
great personal friend with whom I shared so much
over the years, and for whom I have the highest
respect.

May he rest in peace!

Renbe Boser-Sarivaxevanis

Renee Despina Anastasia Boser-Sarivaxevanis,
born in Athens the 16 November 1921, died in
Basel the 21 April 2005. She had suffered for years
from Alzheimer's Disease.

On Friday, 17 June 2005, Lisa Aronson wrote:

"Let me share my own thoughts and memories
about Renee Boser-Sarivax&vanis, a pioneer spe-
cialist in African textiles.

Renee led a fascinating life. She was born in Ath-
ens, Greece on November, 1921 to a Greek father
and a French mother who descended from a
French family in St. Louis, Senegal, with roots go-
ing back more than two centuries. Renee even had
some African blood herself.

Renee's love for Africa began in her early twenties
when she paid her first visit to her mother's home-
land in Senegal. It was there that she met and later
married Jakob Boser (a Swiss from Basel) with
whom she gave birth to two children, her daughter
Line and her son Aleco.

In the early 50s she and her young family spent
three years in Lagos, Nigeria, during which she met
important Yoruba artists, among them Lamidi
Fakeye. Such contacts inspired her to go to Basel
to study ethnology with Professor Alfred Buhler (a
renowned textile specialist himself). Under him,
she wrote her thesis on West African textiles based
on museum collections, the first ever written on
African textiles, which was defended in 1966, and
in print by 1972 (Les Tissus de I'Afrique Occiden-
tale; MWthode de Classification et Catalogue Rai-
sonn6 des Etoffes Tiss6es de I'Afrique de I'Ouest
Etablis d Partir de Donn6es Techniques et Histori-
ques, Basler Beitrage zur Ethnologie Series, Bale,
Pharos-Verlag H. Schwabe, 1972).
Greatly influenced by Buhler's diffusionist approach
to the study of weaving and dyeing techniques,
Renee embraced the idea that the horizontal
treadle loom came to West Africa from North Africa







by way of the Fulani, with the upright frame loom
(traditionally the women's type) being more indige-
nous to sub-Saharan Africa. To test her hypothe-
sis, she (and her assistant, Bernard Gardi) spent
sixteen months between 1973-75 traveling through
West Africa (Nigeria, Niger, Upper Volta, Ivory
Coast, Mali & Senegal) documenting every textile
tradition they could find. Along the way, they ac-
quired a massive collection of textiles (1400 in all!)
for the Basel Museum of Ethnology (Museum der
Kulturen).

In 1977, Joanne Eicher invited Renee to East
Lansing, and then in 1980 to the University of Min-
nesota in St. Paul to teach a three-month course
on African textiles. In honor of her retirement from
the Basel Museum of Ethnology in 1983, Beate
Engelbrecht and Bernhard Gardi edited a festshrift
volume in her honor in the Basler Beitrage zur Eth-
nologie Series titled Man Does Not Go Naked:
Textilien und Handwerk aus afrikanischen und an-
deren Lindern (1989).

Roy Sieber invited her to the Smithsonian to work
on what would be her last major African textile pro-
ject, a catalog of the newly acquired Lamb collec-
tion of African textiles. Unfortunately, she was un-
able to complete it (Peg Gilfoy ended up writing the
catalog based on choices that Renee had made)
because of what may have been the first signs Alz-
heimer's, a disease that eventually took Renee's
life.

While I often had difficulty accepting Renee's
broad, sweeping theories about textiles (eg., argu-
ing that African loom types have antecedents in
Asia), I forever appreciated her perseverance,
breadth of knowledge, uncanny ability to compre-
hend technique, and unending enthusiasm and
support. Renee will always be remembered for her
warm, nurturing ways, her lively sense of humor
and her infectious spirit."

Irene Petty

Irene Mae Petty, 80, a home economics teacher
and collector of West African art and textiles, died
of cardiovascular disease May 25 at her home at
Leisure World in Silver Spring.

As the wife of a Foreign Service officer, Mrs. Petty
traveled widely, particularly in Africa. She lived in
several African countries, including Guinea, Sene-
gal, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Morocco and Tunisia.


She also lived in Sweden. During her time in West
Africa, she taught elementary school in Tunisia,
worked for the Peace Corps in Senegal, taught at a
college in Ivory Coast and founded several organi-
zations in support of women. She and her husband
adopted two daughters from Guinea.

Mrs. Petty was born in Elmington, Va., and grew up
in Washington. She graduated from Cardozo Sen-
ior High School in 1942 and received a bachelor's
degree and master's degree in home economics
from Howard University in the late 1940s. From
1950 to 1958, she worked as an administrative as-
sistant with the National Labor Relations Board.
She lived in Africa from 1959 to 1974.

She was an instructor in the School of Human
Ecology at Howard after returning to the United
States in 1974. She often gave lectures and dem-
onstrations on various craft techniques and studied
at the school for a doctorate in sociology. She
wrote about African foods, the role of women in
developing nations and other issues of human
ecology. She retired from teaching in 1978.

Her interest in West African art and textiles led her
to work as a docent at the National Museum of Afri-
can Art and at the Textile Museum.

In 1980, she became the second director of the
National Council of Negro Women's international
division, a post she held for two years. While with
the council, she arranged for a delegation of Afri-
can American women to attend the first United Na-
tions-sponsored all-women's conference, held in
Nairobi in 1985.

She moved to Leisure World in 1995, where she
served as librarian for her church, Leisure World's
Interfaith Chapel, and for the building where she
lived. She had been a member of Peoples Congre-
gational Church United Church of Christ in the Dis-
trict.

She was a volunteer fundraiser for Tostan, a Sene-
galese nonprofit organization that works on behalf
of women in Senegal, Gambia and Guinea.

Over the years, her apartment became something
of a living museum of textiles, books, masks, paint-
ings, jewelry and decorative items from many Afri-
can countries.

Her husband, Will C. Petty, died in 1986.

Survivors include two daughters, Mariama Barry
and Abayatou Barry of Conakry, Guinea; and four
granddaughters.

About ACASA

The Arts Council of the African Studies Association (ACASA) was established in 1982 as an
independent non-profit professional association affiliated with the African Studies Association
(ASA) in the United States. The organization exists to facilitate communication among schol-
ars, teachers, artists, museum specialists and all others interested in the arts of Africa and
the African Diaspora. Its goals are to promote greater understanding of African material and
expressive culture in all its many forms, and to encourage contact and collaboration with Afri-
can and Diaspora artists and scholars.

As an ASA-sponsored association, ACASA recommends panels for inclusion in the ASA an-
nual meeting program on such wide ranging topics as the interpretation of meanings in Afri-
can art, agency and performance, connoisseurship and aesthetics, the ethics of field collect-
ing and research, the illicit trade in antiquities, museum exhibition strategies, the use of archi-
val sources, as well as issues concerning various historical and contemporary artists and ar-
tistic traditions.

ACASA's annual business meeting is held during the ASA meeting each fall. ACASA is also
an affiliated society of the College Art Association, and meets on an ad hoc basis at its an-
nual conference.

ACASA hosts a Tri-ennial Symposium featuring a rich program of panels and cultural activi-
ties, workshops for museum professionals. A Leadership Award for exemplary and intellec-
tual excellence and two Arnold Rubin Outstanding Publication Awards in recognition of books
of original scholarship and excellence in visual presentation are bestowed at each sympo-
sium.

ACASA members receive three newsletters yearly featuring news about upcoming confer-
ences, exhibitions, research and opportunities for scholars. An annual directory is included in
the Spring-Summer issue. For more information, please contact:
