On Art History in Africa

This collection of essays, transcribed conversations, and research papers come together to challenge the gaps in knowledge and inherited discrepancies around how the history of art itself has been—and continues to be—constructed. Following the journey laid out by the different points of view curated in this book allows for an opportunity to understand intricacies of information accumulation defying any easy categorizations that developed in response to the diverse constituents of “art” originating from the African continent and the diaspora, and the sociopolitical consequences of such knowledge.
