Contemporary African Art


Sidney Littlefield Kasfir


Contemporary African art has grown out of the diverse histories and cultural heritage of the African continent and its diaspora. It is not characterized by any particular style, technique or theme, but by a bricolage-like attitude towards art-making, incorporating and building upon the structures from which older, precolonial and colonial genres were made.

In this revised and updated edition of Contemporary African Art, Sidney Littlefield Kasfir examines the major themes, developments and accomplishments in African art of the 20th and 21st centuries. Organized thematically, the book includes newchapters on the history of African photography and the growth of the global art market, alongside significant discussions of patronage and mediation, artistic training and national and diaspora identities.

Sidney Littlefield Kasfir is Professor Emerita in the Faculty of Art History at Emory University and has taught, curated and researched widely in Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya and the USA.
