This richly illustrated volume highlights one of the most significant collections of African ceramics in the United States, distinguished for its breadth and representation of women’s excellence in ceramics. Collected by William M. Itter, Professor Emeritus of Fine Arts at Indiana University, the scope of the collection is wide-ranging, representing 65 different ethnicities and more than 20 countries in Africa. Illustrating a range of approaches to art making, the works are organised around topics that explore place, time, artistic media, and cultural identity and addressing issues related to cross-cultural exchange, cultural diversity, embodiment, temporality, and spirituality. Organised by the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University, this beautifully designed book celebrates the remarkable work and contributions of women artists.
