This lavish exhibition catalogue is a scholarly study of how African individuals and communities have visually mediated their relationships with the land, on which they live and work and from which they draw spiritual sustenance, through the examination of more than 100 works of art from the past few hundred years. In addition four contemporary artists contribute to the discussion with chapters on their own creations and their place in the story of African art and history.
