Real Meaning and Purpose

London, 14th October 2017 to 15th October 2017

The appreciation of African and Oceanic art has come about with the understanding that it’s not just something created to be hung on a wall and viewed from a distance. Tribal art is utilitarian and an integral part of daily life. The most common objects have meaning and purpose which turns them into art.

It’s not art for art’s sake, but rather art for the purpose of living a deeper and more meaningful life with a greater understanding of the world. There are many regions in Africa and Oceania and each region has produced its own different art that reflects regional, historical, cultural and religious values and beliefs.
