‘Shangaa Art of Tanzania’ / New book and exhibition.
Update. May 2013
A book has just been released focusing in the rich history of tribal art in Tanzania. ‘Shahgaa – Art of Tanzania’ by Gary Van Wyk,is one of the very few books,that digs deep into the art history in this culturally rich but largely overlooked region. In the past 30 years some fantastic pieces of traditional art have been found in Tanzania,mostly all of which have gone into private collections in Europe and America. ‘Shahgaa’ brings to light a select group of 150 of these pieces together with pieces from leading museums from around the world.
A book of this quality has been well over due.
The book accompanies the exhibition [photos below] which opened in Feb. through to May2013 at the QCC Art Gallery New York.Copies of the book can be ordered through the gallery book store.
The exhibition then travels to other locations in the US.
Below are some photos of the exhibiton provided by Gary Van Wyk
