ARHS 3373 - African Festival and Masquerade


Credits: 3

Explores African festival arts from the nineteenth century to the present and introduces the arts of various African peoples—including masquerade, regalia, and performance—in historical, religious, ethnographic, and geographic context. African communities draw inspiration from sources including Hindu images and Afro-Catholic Festivals in the Americas to curate local beauty pageants, environmentally conscious street art, and lavish beaded regalia. Through field footage, ethnographic texts, and visual analysis of contemporary exhibitions, music videos, and documentary films, the course engages the wealth and breadth of African masquerade practices and presents new approaches to histories of live and performance art.
