Call and Response: Journeys of African Art

Sarah Adams, Barbaro Martínez-Ruiz, Joanna Weber, Lyneise Williams, and Robert Farris Thompson

Organized by three graduate students of Robert Farris Thompson, the Colonel John Trumbull Professor of History of Art and Professor of African American Studies at Yale University, this exhibition catalogue investigates how specific patterns and forms have migrated within the African continent. Artifacts ranging from postcards, carved ivory, masks, textiles, and medicinal figures known as minkisi are presented and discussed in the context of the braided traditions from which they emerged.
