Description du livre Five Continents Editions, 2007. État : new. Washington, National Museum of African Art, 9 maggio - 26 agosto 2007. Washington, Smithsonian Institution, 14 ottobre 2007 - 17 febbraio 2008. Texts by Christine Mullen Kreamer, Mary Nooter Roberts, Elizabeth Harney and Allyson Purpura. Contributions by Sarah Adams, Simon Battestini, Berry Bickle, Willem Boshoff, Sarah Brett-Smith, Amanda Carlson, Victor Ekpuk, Ali Omar Ermes, Wosene Worke Kosrof with Patricia L. DiRubbio, Bàrbaro Martìnez-Ruiz, Diana Craig Patch, Raymond A. Silverman, Robert Farris Thompson and C. Daniel Dawson, Konrad Tuchscherer and Iké Udé. English text. Milano, 2007; paperback, pp. 256, b/w and col. ill., cm 24x28,5. Il volume indaga le relazioni che intercorrono tra l'arte africana e il forte potere di espressione offerto dalla scrittura. Il libro prende in esame lo stretto legame esistente tra la miriade di iscrizioni, testi e espressioni grafiche e l'ispirazione, che da queste forme, hanno tratto gli artisti africani. I saggi, presenti all'interno della pubblicazione, rivelano la complessità della pratica artistica africana, attraverso la quale la forza evocativa e la versatilità del linguaggio vengono messi in pratica nei manufatti artistici, utilizzati poi, per la loro bellezza, plasticità e armonia delle forme, come strumenti per la ricerca del contatto con il divino. L'arte africana, dall'antichità ai giorni nostri, mostra il contributo alla storia della scrittura all'interno di un sistema grafico codificato presente nelle diverse culture. Inscribing Meaning segna, nella bibliografia specializzata, sia essa storico artistica, antropologica o filosofica, che indaga la storia della scrittura nelle tradizione delle varie culture, la relazione tra la comunicazione scritta e quella orale e la nozione di letteratura non convenzionale nelle società orientali e africane.

Description du livre Five Continents Editions, Italy, 2008. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This groundbreaking volume brings together both tradition-based and contemporary African arts to explore the interface between African art and the communicative powers of graphic systems, language and the written word. It explores the multiple messages and aesthetic intent of works that creatively incorporate script - both for its literal content as well as the beauty of its form. The catalogue includes 90 exceptional works of art dating from ancient to contemporary times. Inscribing Meaning celebrates the ingenuity and creativity of African artists from around the continent who bring script and graphic forms of communication into a wide range of artworks. Readers will learn about Africa s long history of written languages and literacy, and the spectacular works of art will illustrate a range of indigenous African writing systems that have received little attention outside of Africa as both visually compelling and historically significant forms of art.These include everyday and ritual objects, religious painting and manuscripts, protective talismans, commemorative cloth, public and popular arts, and contemporary painting, sculpture, prints, installation art, photography and video. The volume aims to challenge popular misperceptions that do not recognise Africa s contributions to the global history of writing, and to foster dialogue with and expand the readers ideas about what it means to be knowledgeable, educated, and literate. This book will be particularly valuable to scholars and students of art history, history, fine arts, African and African American studies, linguistics and anthropology.
