Central Nigeria Unmasked: Arts of the Benue River Valley

The Benue River Valley is the source of some of the most abstract, dramatic, and inventive sculpture in sub-Saharan Africa. Yet  the many and diverse groups flanking the 650-mile-long Benue River—and their fascinating arts—are little known and studied.

The exhibition will be at the Fowler Museum at UCLA February 13 – July 24, 2011 and will then travel to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art, Stanford University’s Cantor Arts Center, and the Musée du quai Branly, Paris.
