Interview with the Curator: The Art of African Art (VIDEO)
Senufo: Art and Identity in West Africa is now open at the Cleveland Museum of Art! Through Sunday, May 31, delve deeper into the world of Senufo art: its identity, imagination, and impact. Featuring a stunning collection of Sub-Saharan African masks, sculptures, figures, and decorative art labeled as “Senufo,” the exhibition features nearly 160 works of art from museums and private collections from across the world, many of which have never before been publicly displayed.
We caught up with the museum's Curator of African Art, Constantine Petridis, for a closer look at the art of African art. Watch the clip above, then download the CMA Senufo app and visit the exhibition to discover more!
