Useable Art: African Aesthetics in Daily Life


Cattle Herder's Hat, collected between 1960-1973. Gift of Professor and Mrs. Robert R. Ferens.

Some never before seen works are on exhibit as part of “Useable Art: African Aesthetics in Daily Life from the UM Lowe Art Museum.” Most African art serves a function—spiritual if not utilitarian, or often both. This exhibition consists of objects that provide some purpose of daily living that can be relatively easily recognized by non-Africans. They can also be appreciated for the appeal of their forms, the beauty of their patterns, and the quality of craftsmanship.

The works are on view through Sunday, January 16, 2011, with the curator’s lecture also taking place on January 16 at 2 pm at the Lowe.

The Lowe’s extensive holdings of African art include not only ceremonial masks and ritual figures but also many objects made for use in daily life. This exhibition will showcase a selection of the finest containers, textiles, tools, home furnishings, and other useful objects—very few of which have ever been displayed.

“Usable Art” is organized by the Lowe Art Museum and is sponsored in part by The State of Florida and the African Art Endowment.

The Lowe Art Museum is located on the University of Miami’s Coral Gables campus at 1301 Stanford Drive, Coral Gables. Gallery and Museum Store hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday 12 to 4 p.m.; Closed Monday. Regular Admission (not including special events) is $10; $5 for seniors and non-UM students; free for Lowe Art Museum members, University of Miami students, faculty and staff, and children under 12. For more information, call 305-284-3535 or visit www.lowemuseum.org.
