The Language of Beauty in African Art presents nearly 250 remarkable works from collections around the world—compelling art that scholars, connoisseurs, and collectors outside Africa have admired for more than a century.
The exhibition features an incredible variety of objects, including a range of impressive and powerful sculptures, captivating costumes and masks made for ceremonial use, and extraordinary decorative arts.
Visitors can experience works in a new way as the exhibition explores how this art was evaluated and appreciated by the local artists and audiences who created and experienced it, through the very words that they themselves used to describe their creations—their language of beauty.
This exhibition is organized by the Art Institute of Chicago
