Metropolitan Fetish (N° 22249)

From the 1880s to the 1940s, French colonial officials, businessmen and soldiers, returning from overseas assignments, brought masks and wooden figures back from Africa. This imperial and cultural power game is the starting point of a story that travels from sub-Saharan Africa to Parisian art galleries; from the pages of fashion magazines, through the doors of the Louvre, to world fairs and international auction houses; in the apartments of avant-garde critics and poets; through the streets of Harlem, then loop the loop to museums and colonial schools in Dakar, Bamako and Abidjan.
