Unrivalled Art (N° 19371)

Momentary out of stock.
This book, which is published on the occasion of the opening of the museum, unveils a collection of 77 important works from the Royal Museum for Central Africa collection. A series of scholars, curators, and experts in African art offer a review and analysis of each of these pieces.
Many of the works collected here are in the gallery assigned to the temporary exhibition "Unrivalled Art". Others can be found in the rooms dedicated to the permanent exhibition. Finally, some works allow us to take a look behind the scenes of the RMCA, in the hushed atmosphere of the depots, which the general public is unaware of. Researcher and curator Julien Volper has selected pieces that come not only from the Congo, but also from other countries, such as Angola and Gabon.
These are sometimes physical testimonies of lost cultures dating from the 8th to the 10th century, even tens of thousands of years! However, most of the works belong to the more recent period of the 19th and 20th centuries. All these masks, statuettes, ivories, weapons, vessels and other objects express a true creativity - a creativity so well described in 1919 by the theorist Vladimir Markov: "[...] this [African] art is unequalled in the world".
