Sahel

Art and Empires on the Shores of the Sahara

2020. 304S., zahlr.farb.Abb., Text:Engl., Geb.
Metropolitan Museum of Art


From the first millennium, Africa's western Sahel?a vast area on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert, spanning what is today Senegal, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger was the birthplace of a succession of influential states fueled by regional and global trade networks. Opening on January 30 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sahel: Art and Empires on the Shores of the Sahara will be the first exhibition of its kind to trace the cultural legacy of the region, including the legendary empires of Ghana (300-1200), Mali (1230-1600), Songhay (1464-1591), and Segu (1640-1861). The exhibition will bring together some 200 works that were created in parallel to these developments, including spectacular sculptures in wood, stone, fired clay, and bronze; gold and cast metal artifacts; woven and dyed textiles; and illuminated manuscripts.
