Talk: African Cosmos: Stellar Arts with Dr. Christine Mullen Kreamer


5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036


In this richly illustrated lecture, Dr. Christine Mullen Kreamer, curator of African Cosmos: Stellar Arts, presents the historical legacy of African cultural astronomy and its intersection with both traditional and contemporary African arts. Drawing on a stunning array of arts and artists, Kreamer considers how the celestial bodies of the sun, moon, and stars—and phenomena such as lightning and rainbows—serve as sources of inspiration in the creation of art in Africa from ancient times to the present. Far from abstract removed concepts, African notions of the universe are intensely personal and place human beings in relationship with earth, sky, and the heavenly bodies.


Dr. Christine Mullen Kreamer is deputy director and chief curator at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art.
