Diverging Streams: Eastern Nigerian Art
Johns Hopkins Homewood | Website
This event occurred in the past.
The new galleries for African art include an area for thematic focus exhibitions. The first exhibition brings together approximately 20 headdresses, masks, and costumes from the eastern Nigerian region of Africa. These works demonstrate the aesthetic relationships between the Igbo, Jukun, Igala, Ogoni, Boki, Idoma, Ibibio, and Ejagham cultures that lived between the Benue and Cross rivers. Many of the works are drawn from an important private collection.
