I( Presidential Notes



As you hold this Newsletter in your hand, or read
the electronic version, it will be just a short time
until the Fourteenth Triennial Symposium on Afri-
can Art in Gainesville...the excitement is building!
This year marks two important milestones in the
history of ACASA and the Triennial and, accord-
ingly, this year's Triennial promises to be espe-
cially meaningful and festive. 2007 is the twenty-
fifth anniversary of ACASA, founded in 1982 by
Roy Sieber, Arnold Rubin, and others. 2007 is
also (almost) the fortieth anniversary of the first
Symposium on African Art, held at the Hampton
Institute in 1968 under the direction of Richard
Long. It is fitting that we take a moment to thank
our elders and ancestors for their wisdom in es-
tablishing these two institutions that have done so
much to promote the importance of African and
Diaspora art in academia, museums, and among
the interested general public.

This year's Triennial will include dozens of panels
and roundtables that demonstrate the breadth and
depth of African and Diaspora studies. Its theme,
"Global Africa," addresses the ways in which clas-
sical and contemporary African arts have played,
and increasingly continue to play, a part in interna-
tional and trans-cultural exchanges. One of the
distinctive features of the symposium hosted by
the University of Florida at Gainesville is the incor-
poration within the conference of the Gwendolyn
M. Carter Lectures on Africa, in honor of the dis-
tinguished Africanist. The Carter Lectures will
address the theme of "African Visual Cultures:
Crossing Disciplines, Crossing Regions," and will
consist of three special panels led by a roster of
distinguished African artists, designers, writers,
and scholars. If you need a break from scholarly
panels, the Samuel P. Harn Museum will have a
dazzling array of exhibitions of African art. And if
you need a break from African art (but why would
you?) you can refresh yourself in the Florida Mu-
seum of Natural History's Butterfly Rainforest
vivarium, featuring African butterflies in honor of
ACASA and the Triennial, of course!

I am looking forward to the Triennial to catch up
with old friends and make new ones. It will also
be an opportunity for me to thank my African art
colleagues for giving me the chance to serve


I ACASA I







ACASA as aboard member for the past three
years and as president for the past eighteen
months. I have learned a lot in the process, and
hope that I have contributed to making the organi-
zation stronger and better able to accomplish its
goals. I'm looking forward to seeing you in Gaines-
villel



=In, Message from the Editor


In this issue, we have included the latest version of
the Triennial Program Schedule summary, as well
as much pertinent information about the upcoming
conference. Note that some changes may appear
on the final program you will receive at the confer-
ence. Also, we have included the Member's Direc-
tory in this issue. Any changes to names and ad-
dresses should be sent directly to Alice Burmeister
at: burmeistera(S.winthrop.edu

In the last two issues of the newsletter I have an-
nounced the option of receiving the electronic ver-
sion of the newsletter for all members. While sev-
eral overseas members have responded favorably,
we have received only a couple of requests from
the members in the U.S. Anyone wishing to re-
ceive a PDF of the newsletter via email should con-
tact me at: secook(@ufl.edu.

I am pleased to announce that we also have many
more sponsored members thanks to recent re-
quests made at the ACASA meeting and in the last
issue. Please keep those sponsorships coming to
help defray the annual cost of overseas mailings,
particularly for libraries and other institutions who
need hardcopies. Thanks to all of our new spon-
sors who generously gave for 2007!

Much of the material in this newsletter was pre-
pared by Triennial organizers Robin Poynor, Vicki
Rovine, and Rebecca Nagy, and our University of
Florida Conference Department staff, Ann Ooton
and Rebecca Johnson. I wish to thank them as well
as Carol Thompson, Kate Ezra and all board mem-
bers for their assistance in providing updates to the
triennial program.

Many thanks to Melody Record who has faithfully
assisted me in formatting and editing, and UF
graduate student Mackenzie Moon for her assis-
tance.

ASA Conference in San Francisco
ACASA Board Meeting Minutes
November 17th, 2006

Board members present: Alice Burmeister, Christa
Clarke, Susan Cooksey, Kate Ezra, Chris Geary,
Norma Wolff. Guests: Vicki Rovine, Robin Poynor
Board members not present: Kim Miller, Sylvester
Ogechie, Carol Thompson, Monica Visona

1. Welcome Kate Ezra

2. Secretary/Treasurer's Report on finances and
membership Alice Burmeister

Increase in all ACASA accounts due to member-
ship renewals, donations, and interest, the latter
thanks to high-interest accounts in which Alice has
deposited ACASA funds.

Discussion of uses of "Symposium Account" (travel
grants for U.S. and European grad students and
African scholars), "Triennial Account" (seed money
for next triennial, triennial organizing expenses),
and Sieber Account" (awards for best dissertation,
given at each triennial). Since there is great inter-
est in donating to Sieber Account, but relatively
less need for funds for dissertation awards, it was
proposed to combine and rename the "Symposium"
and "Sieber" Accounts to create "Roy Sieber Schol-
arship and Dissertation Award Account." This way
travel grants to grad students and African scholars
will also be a way of honoring Roy Sieber's mem-
ory. This will be presented to ACASA membership
at the business meeting.

Discussion of high reported cost of printing and
mailing the last newsletter. Alice and Susan will
get itemized bills to figure out reason.

3. 2007 Gainesville Triennial
Report from Planning Committee Vicki Rovine
and Robin Poynor
Planning Committee trying to raise more
money after University of Florida College of
Liberal Arts in debt. Triennial will include
keynote address by Okwui Enwezor and
receptions on Thursday night, dinner on
one's own Friday night, awards dinner on
Saturday night.
Program Committee reported there will be
42 panels and roundtables (compared to
34 at 2004 Triennial). There will be 4 con-
current panels, and 4 sessions per day.
Will award travel grants to 7 U.S. and


European grad students. Will award 6
travel grants to African scholars. Total
grants = $9,500. (3 U.S. grad students and
7 African scholars not funded, primarily
because of incomplete applications).
Alice will make sure that travel grants are
available in cash, to avoid problems en-
countered by African scholars at 2004 Tri-
ennial.
Museum Day and Outreach Day well or-
ganized.

4. Fund-raising and membership Chris Geary and
Kate Ezra
* Chris sent out fundraising letters to as many
members and past members who could be
identified, asking for contributions to the Sym-
posium Account and the Sieber Account.
* Kate is in the process of sending out letters
encouraging people to join or renew their mem-
berships in ACASA (they have since been sent
out). Discussion of whether people should be
required to be members of ACASA the year
before the Triennial (when they submit their
panel and paper proposals) as well as the year
of the Triennial. Christa Clarke thought that
with the expanding of the field of African art to
Diaspora and Contemporary art there might be
many people for whom this might be difficult or
undesirable. Others felt that it is necessary to
ensure consistent membership and funds. The
majority feel that the more ACASA can rein-
force membership the better.
* It was agreed that sending letters every year is
a much better way to ensure membership than
only relying on the renewal forms in the news
letter.
Also agreed that it is important to send out ac-
knowledgment letters to those who join or renew
their letters, indicating the year for which they are
members. This is especially important because
people often join late in the year, thinking they are
joining for the following year. The Secretary/
Treasurer will send out the membership acknowl-
edgment letters.

5. Award Committees
Leadership Chris Geary
Chris noted that there are no written guide-
lines for choosing the Leadership Award
recipient, including who is eligible and what
criteria should apply. Chris and the current
Leadership Award committee (Joanne Ei-
cher, Ekpo Eyo, Joanna Grabski, Shannen
Hill, and Doran Ross) will look into the mat-
ter and establish more permanent guide-
lines.

Arnold Rubin Book award Carol Thompson (in
absentia)







Carol reported very few books submitted
for consideration, despite announcing the
award on h-afrarts. She has since sent
letters to publishers soliciting nominations
and gotten the list of books received for
review by African Arts. The board recom-
mended that Carol announce the award
and guidelines again on h-afrarts. There
was concern that there might not be suffi-
cient time to receive the books and read
them.
Roy Sieber Dissertation award Norma Wolff
Committee consists of Norma, dele jegede,
Simon Ottenberg, and Julie McGeee. Six
dissertations have been nominated. There
were no nominations from Indiana Univer-
sity, Columbia University, UCLA, University
of Iowa, University of Wisconsin, University
of Maryland. Norma will make note in file
for next Triennial that Dissertation Award
chair should send letters directly to faculty
who supervise African art Ph.D. students
requesting nominations, in addition to an-
nouncing it on h-afrarts. Elisha Renne pro-
vided extensive guidelines and criteria for
the award.

Following suggestions sent to Chris by ACASA
members, it was agreed that award recipients
should be announced prior to the awards dinner at
the Triennial so that recipients can be congratu-
lated. If possible, the recipients will be announced
in the Triennial program, along with short bio and
photo. The various award committees will try to
complete their deliberations early enough to meet
the deadline for the program. Susan Cooksey will
find out the exact deadline for the program.

6. Newsletter Susan Cooksey
* Currently sending out newsletter to 110 our
courtesy members in Africa and Caribbean. Alice
pointed out that according to her records only two
ACASA members have actually contributed $10
each to sponsor courtesy members. Discussion
suggested that there should be many more than
this. The membership form on the website, trien-
nial site, and in the newsletter should all conform,
and list the check off box for the $10 additional
contribution to sponsor courtesy members.
* Currently sending newsletter out electronically
to 27 courtesy members and a handful of regular
members. Again, it was agreed that the member-
ship form should consistently give members the
option of choosing to receive the newsletter elec-
tronically rather than in hard copy. This will save
us money through decreased printing and mailing.
* In future Newsletter will list board members
with their terms of service on board
* Seeking several past issues of ACASA news-


letter to complete the archive of them.
* Janet Stanley at NMAfA has several that she is
willing to donate; Susan will contact Janet to get
these.
Other archival issues: boxes of materials sent to
Northwestern University Library by Michael Conner
have not been catalogued. Kate will contact Mi-
chael to ask what is in them and whether they have
been accessioned by NU. It is possible that they
could be sent to Janet Stanley for the Warren Rob-
bins Library. Eventually it would be good to scan
all past newsletters and post them on website. We
will also need to go through archives for history of
ACASA section of website.

7. Website Committee report from Committee
Chair- Kim Miller (in absentia)
* Kate presented the website committee report.
The committee recommended the contract for de-
signing and maintaining ACASA's website be
awarded to Thomas Mitchell of Marinpro LLC/
Literae Interactive. The board approved. Jean
Borgatti has provisionally agreed to be the web
liaison for ACASA, providing some of the easier
maintenance and updates that can be done by
non-professionals. We will need to identify other
ACASA members in the future who can do this.
The question of whether this should be a new posi-
tion on the ACASA board was discussed and we
decided to wait and see how it goes and discuss it
again in April.
* The first priorities for the website are the follow-
ing categories: About, Join ACASA, Triennial,
Newsletter, link to h-afrarts.
* Listserve? Need to ask Thomas whether it will
be hosted on ACASA site.
* Password Protection? Need to ask Thomas
how much more expensive and difficult to maintain
this would be. Many on board think having a pass-
word protected area would be a good benefit of
membership.
* Images: several of the curators on the board
seemed to think that their institutions would not be
adverse to providing object images free of charge
to the website (as long as they were not download-
able). Christa and Susan will investigate whether
the Newark Museum or Ham Museum would be
willing. We will also contact other university muse-
ums to see if they would be willing to waive fee for
using their images (e.g. Fowler, University of Michi-
gan Museum, Elvejem, I.U. Art Museum). Of
course they would be properly credited.
Procedure for generating text: when possible use
existing text, e.g. from newsletter.

Since April 2005 44 books assigned to review-
ers, 18 archived, 1 posted but not archived, 2 in


final edits, and 23 are pending. Susan Kart of
Smith College has agreed to be assistant E-Review
Editor, pending training final H-Net Board approval.
ASA Kate Ezra
Successful this year in convincing ASA to pro-
vide digital projectors for arts panels. Must con-
tinue lobbying for this with ASA board
CAA Liaison Christa Clarke
Will have ACASA sponsored roundtable on
African art pedagogy at next CAA meeting.
Agreed it is not necessary to have board and busi-
ness meeting at CAA conference, because of close
proximity to triennial. Will conduct necessary busi-
ness via e-mail.

11. Triennial 2010
Agreed it is not good idea to hold next triennial in
Chicago since CAA will be meeting there shortly
before. Carol Thompson volunteered to investi-
gate possibility of holding it in Atlanta, and Maria
Berns also expressed interest in holding it at

UCLA. Kristina Van Dyke's also suggested that it
be held 4n Houston, but the board felt that there
was not sufficient infrastructure there at this time to
support it.

In I ACASA Business Meeting


ACASA Business Meeting Minutes
November 18th, 2006
ASA Conference in San Francisco

1. Welcome Kate Ezra

2. Secretary/Treasurer's Report on finances and
membership Alice Burmeister
* Alice's report was the same as at the board
meeting
Kate presented the board's proposal to combine
and rename the "Sieber Dissertation Account" and
the "Symposium Account" into a single account
entitled "Roy Sieber Travel and Dissertation Ac-
count." This would cover funding of grad students
and African scholars to travel to the Triennial as
well as the dissertation award. The proposal was
moved and seconded and unanimously approved
by the membership.

3. 2007 Gainesville Triennial Robin Poynor,
Victoria Rovine, Susan Cooksey
Same as at board meeting.

4. Newsletter Susan Cooksey
Same as at board meeting

5. Website Committee Kate Ezra for Kim Miller
(in absentia)
Kate presented the proposal for the website to
great interest and support by the membership.

6. Membership and Fundraising Chris Geary and
Kate Ezra
* All agreed that it would be helpful to have
membership renewal letters sent out every fall, and
to have acknowledgment letters sent out confirming
membership.
* Joanne Eicher brought up the advantages of
having a professional membership and conference
coordinator, and the board agreed to continue look-
ing into it.
* Rowland Abiodun suggested expanding the
number of membership categories. For example,
CAA has an "institutional membership" category
which his college belongs to; it provides various


benefits, including free conference registration for
1-2 faculty members who are not regular members
of CAA. Other categories of membership could be
lifetime and patron. These would provide more
funds for ACASA. Board agreed to look into this
and bring specific proposal to the business meeting
at Gainesville.
Rowland also suggested that members who give
several invited lectures per year may be willing to
donate the fee for one of their talks to ACASA.

7. Board nominations
* replacement board members ratified unani-
mously by members present
Monica Visona (term ending Triennial 2007)
Sylvester Ogbechie (term ending ASA 2008)

4 candidates to replace board members cycling off
board at Triennial 2007
Monica Visona
Salah Hassan
Allen Roberts
Jean Borgatti
Procedure for additional nominations explained
Reminder that we need to see brief statements by
candidates before elections. This usually included
in the Newsletter, but will not be in this forthcoming
issue. Agreed that these would be available at the
Triennial at the very latest.

8. ACASA Affiliations
* ASA Kate Ezra

Everyone agreed the A/V facilities at the San Fran-
cisco conference were excellent and were grateful
to ACASA for its efforts in making the digital projec-
tors available. Members were asked to convey
their appreciation to ASA in any way possible and
ACASA member Babatunde Lawal who is cur-
rently on the ASA board agreed to support our ef-
forts to make digital projectors available in the fu-
ture at ASA meetings.

* CAA Liaison Christa Clarke
Christa described the ACASA-sponsored special
session on African art pedagogy that will take place
at the CAA conference in New York in February
2007. Announced that the ACASA business meet-
ing at the CAA conference in NY will be cancelled,
since it is so close to the Gainesville triennial.

9. Triennial 2010
* Kate announced that Chicago would not pur-
sue hosting the conference in 2010 because of the
conflict with the CAA conference there. Currently
have three other possible sites Houston, Los An-
geles, and Atlanta.
* Allen Roberts mentioned the desirability of
having a Triennial in South Africa. Agreed that we







would welcome a proposal.

10. Other business
* Allen Roberts reported on developments with
African Arts. The magazine is doing better now
that it is published by MIT Press, but it still has very
few subscribers and few submitted articles.
* Bill Dewey suggested that MIT Press send out
invitations to give African Arts as gifts, just as other
magazines do.
* When ACASA website is functioning we can
include a link to African Arts magazine.
* Phil Peek reminded people to recommend the
Drew program to students.
* Henry Drewal has been asked by ASA to coor-
dinate the arts sessions at the next ASA meet-
ing (New York, 2007). He asked for a volun-
teer to assist him in this and Kinsey Katchka
agreed to do it.

reference to my research. I taught at Clark Uni-


versity for 20 years prior to returning to Nigeria in
2002 on a Fulbright, and maintain a faculty status
at Clark, though I am no longer teaching there. I
am a lifetime member of the College Art Associa-
tion and the African Studies Association. I served

or worked on numerous committees, from the Tri-
ennial Program to fundraising. I am currently the
E-Review editor for H-AfrArts, and have committed
to being in charge of website maintenance for
ACASA. ACASA has become a central organiza-
tion in our field, and it plays a major role in keeping
African scholars in touch with developments in the
United States. I was pleased to be asked and am
happy to serve again on the board and contribute
time, energy and experience to continuing
ACASA's work. My goal is to support ACASA as
an inclusive organization.

Conferences Abroad


32nd Annual Conference of the Caribbean Studies
Association in Brazil May 28-June 1, 2007

For the forthcoming 32nd Annual Conference of the
Caribbean Studies Association in Salvador da Ba-
hia, Brazil (May 28 June 1, 2007), we are plan-
ning to assemble a panel on music in the Carib-
bean and its diaspora, examining music from a va-
riety of perspectives as a form of political protest,
an agent of social activism, a means of cultural re-
sistance, a form of youth protest, a way of refram-
ing individual and collective identity. We are envi-
sioning a broad spectrum of contributions from the
Caribbean and its diaspora, incorporating popular
music as well as the "alternative" music scene.

For example, interest has been expressed in pre-
senting papers on Cuban reggae and Rasta as well
as Haitian/Haitian-American hip-hop. Papers may
be presented in English, Portuguese, Spanish, or

Media Resources


International Council of African Museums http://
www.africom.museum/

For years, many museology experts knew about the
vast cultural resources held within museums
throughout Africa, but getting specific information
about each one was difficult. In 2000, the Interna-
tional Council of African Museums (AFRICOM) was
created, and since then, the organization's outreach
has included the creation of this website which pro-
vides information for both museum professionals
and the general public.

First-time visitors will want to look over the "Heritage
News" area which will give them a sense of the
scope of AFRICOM's primary activities. From there,
visitors can also view past issues of AFRICOM's
newsletter and view a list of helpful external links.
Finally, both the itinerant traveler and the seasoned
museum scholar will appreciate the "Museums in
Africa" section, which provides ample material on
the various museums located throughout the conti-
nent.

Call for Papers


Call for Papers: African Film Conference, 2007

Abstract submission deadline: May 31, 2007 Confer-
ence date: November 9-10, 2007
Place: Center for African Studies
University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

The African film conference in Urbana-Champaign
will explore how an appreciation of films as mode of
expression and form can be combined with an un-
derstanding of their content. Cinema has a more
pronounced public dimension than some of the
other arts; it creates an audience and depends on it
for its survival, and filmmaking itself can be situated
within the history, economy, politics, and broader
cultural trends of postcolonial Africa. The confer-
ence will aim to foster a dialogue between film
scholars, critics, and the social science interpreters,
users, and enthusiasts of African films, and will try to
achieve, among other things, a greater sensibility for
film as a medium among the latter. We seek ab-
stracts from scholars and writers interested in par-
ticipating in this project.

We invite contributions on thematic and stylistic de-
10


velopment in African filmmaking and on the way the
films reflect and feed upon urban popular culture. A
subset of related themes involve the connections to
international film making styles or to the ethno-
graphic and documentary film traditions, including
considerations of emerging regional and national
styles within Africa. We would like to see sober and
carefully documented studies of continuity with older
African verbal, dramatic, and visual arts, or of the
emergence in film of new expressive manners
breaking away from them. Film music and sound-
tracks, the use of traditional and popular musical
genres in the films, the influence of international film
scores, and a documentation of the impetus that
films give to national musical composition could en-
rich our reflection on modern Africa. Who the do-
mestic audiences of these films are, the reactions of
these audiences to the films, and the training and
careers of African directors and actors can as well
bear more sustained attention. Of particular interest
to us are the popular film and video industries on
which relatively little gets written, for example the
one in Nigeria. Finally, our understanding of the sub-
ject matter and the style of African films can be
deepened by an understanding of the broader politi-
cal economy of the African film industries, the role of
public and private financing from home and abroad,
the share in revenue of domestic and export mar-
kets, the initiatives for co-production or the sharing
of post-production facilities, among African countries
and between them and the countries of the north.

Please send abstracts of 250-300 words to either
one of us, by e-mail or by post.

Obituaries


Richard J. Faletti (1922-2006)

Richard J. Faletti's appreciation of African art was
sparked during a business trip to Nigeria in the late
1970's as a lawyer with Winston & Strawn on be-
half of a company involved in an agricultural pro-
ject. It ultimately led him to amass a collection of
masks, carvings and textiles that he later donated
to museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago.

While there, he visited a museum in the town of
Jos and became fascinated by the artwork, his
daughter said. On subsequent trips he spent hours
doing research in museum libraries and buying
pieces of art.

Previously his art purchases had centered on Im-
pressionist paintings. Those works hung adjacent
to African masks, textiles and pictures in his Clar-
endon Hills home, his daughter said.

Richard Townsend, chairman of the African and
Amerindian art department at the Art Institute, met
Mr. Faletti in the early 1980s in a downtown hotel
room where an African art dealer was displaying
his wares.

"In a comer was this dignified, conservatively-clad
lawyer-looking person flipping through African
robes," Townsend recalled. "He had already em-
barked on the idea of building a collection."

With scholarly zeal and the reasoned approach of a
corporate attorney, Mr. Faletti became a respected
collector and appraiser of African art. He was a
member of the advisory committee of Townsend's
department at the Art Institute and a trustee of mu-
seums, including the Heard Museum in Phoenix. In
the late 1990s, a collection of his work titled "A
Sense of Wonder: African Art from the Faletti Fam-
ily Collection" was a traveling exhibit at U.S. muse-
ums..

A lifelong collector, Mr. Faletti started with stamps
and baseball cards. During the 1970s, he and his
son assembled a large collection of cone-topped
beer cans, his daughter said. He sold his beer cans
to help fund his initial African art purchases, she
said.

In later years, his African art collection was distrib-
uted to his children and museums including the
William R. and Clarice V. Spurlock Museum at the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.


The Art Institute received "the bulk and the best" of
the collection, Townsend said.

Mr. Faletti, 84, died Monday, Dec. 25, at his home
in Phoenix, Ariz., of brain cancer, said his daugh-
ter, Margaret Anderson. Besides his daughter, sur-
vivors include three other daughters, Martha Keil-
man, Joan Scottberg and Carol Wolfe; a son, Mi-
chael; 11 grandchildren; and two great-
grandchildren. Mr. Faletti's wife, Barbara, died in
2000.

Hans Witte (1928-2006)

"It is with great pain I have to inform you that our
friend Dr. Hans Witte has died on December 29T,
2006 in Nijmegen, Nederlands. Together with him,
he took along an incredible warm spirit and a
boundless knowledge of the Yorubas. As a scholar
he worked till the end for the Yale files, in the hope
that young scholars could benefit of this. As written
in his obituary, he has left this dance-floor, their
'pas-de-deux' has come to an end. Our thoughts go
out to Nettie."
- Guy van Rijn, Editor & Complier for WHO's WHO
IN AFRICAN ART (edited)

Hans studied philosophy and phenomenology of
religion at Nijmegen University in the Nether-lands.
He taught science of religion and iconography at the
Rijksuniversiteit in Groningen for 10 years and was
the former curator of the Afrika Museum at Berg &
Dal.

Hans penned numerous publications, mainly on
Yoruba art, including:

Gnapa B6atrice Komb6

Gnapa Beatrice Komb6 passed away in Abidjan,
on Thursday 22 February 2007 of kidney failure at
the age of 35. A dancer, choreographer and foun-
der of C-ompagnie Tch4Tch6 (Cote d'lvoire).

Most recently, Beatrice Komb6's vision, dance and
philosophy were eloquently captured in the 2007
documentary feature film, Movement (R)Evolution
Africa, produced and directed by Joan Frosch of
the University of Florida. The film has received
wide critical acclaim and is scheduled to show in a
number of international festivals and events this
year.

Through Beatrice's vision and leadership,
Tch6Tch6 emerged not only as one of Africa's
most successful contemporary dance troupes but
also as a bold symbol of the power and passion of
women. Leading her core ensemble of four women,
Gnapa Beatrice Komb6, created a riveting and dis-
tinctly contemporary language of dance. Komb6
drew from her heritage and daily experiences to
create a powerful voice for a new generation of
African choreographers.

Last fall, Multiarts Projects and Productions
(MAPP) had the privilege to produce a 6-week
United States tour of Dimi, the first piece Ms.
Komb6 choreographed for Compagnie Tch6Tch6
and which was awarded the UNESCO prize in
1999. The tour, which was a project of The Africa
Contemporary Arts Consortium (TACAC), debuted
at the Kennedy Center and introduced the com-
pany in nine cities across the United States and
included workshops, discussions and perform-
ances that met with extraordinary public acclaim
and drew sold out houses in every city.

Ms. Kombe's untimely passing is a profound loss
not only to her family and community in Cote
d'lvoire where she was a central and treasured
leader but also to friends, students, artists, arts or-
ganizers and the public around the world who had
the opportunity to know her on and off the stage.

I Triennial Travel
Stipend Fund



Next year ACASA will celebrate its twenty fifth anni-
versary! We hope you have already decided to at-
tend ACASA's 14th Triennial Symposium hosted by
the University of Florida's College of Fine Arts,
School of Art and Art History, Center for African
Studies, and the Samuel P. Ham Museum of Art
from March 28-April 1, 2007. Gainesville is the site
for the meeting, and the theme will be Global Africa.
Robin Poynor and Rebecca Nagy are the Co-Chairs
of the conference, and Victoria Rovine serves as the
Program Chair. Susan Cooksey and Carol Thomp-
son will organize Museum Day. Bonnie Bernau, Di-
rector of Education at the Ham, and Agnes Leslie,
Outreach Director for the Center for African Studies,
are in charge of Outreach Day. The conference will
allow participants to meet many colleagues and
Friends of African art and explore the African art
collections and resources in the Gainesville area. If
you haven't yet, please make plans to participate in
this opportunity to engage in the discourse on the
expressive arts of Africa and the Diaspora. Registra-
tion fees cover only a fraction of Triennial costs. Our
hosts in Gainesville have been raising money for
everything from receptions to a-v services. ACASA
must do its share. Most importantly, we have com-
mitted ourselves as usual to raise funds so graduate
students and colleagues from Africa and the Dias-
pora can join us.

In preparation for past Triennials we have always
been flooded with applications for travel stipends-
from graduate students and from African/Diasporan
colleagues. We hope to offer at least 20 grants of
$500 to graduate students and to sponsor 7 or more
African and Caribbean applicants. We have set a
goal of $30,000.

Remember that ACASA is now a 501 (c) (3) tax-
exempt organization. Although we always welcome
contributions to ACASA's Endowment, our focus
must now be on the Triennial. Please join ACASA
members and friends in making a generous, tax-
deductible contribution to the Triennial Travel Sti-
pend Fund so we can support as many applicants
as possible. If you can afford to do so, we ask you to
consider contributing $100 or more. Please fill in the
form on the next page and mail in with your contri-
bution.

Our travel stipend recipients join us in thanking you
for your support. We look forward to seeing you in
Gainesville for this exciting event.

- Kate Ezra, ACASA President

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 Triennial 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:
