August 05, 2005
continues to be one of Africas most original and internationally
acclaimed artistic movements. This retrospective reflects on the origins,
developments and contemporary challenges of the movement. Containing some
90 full-colour photographs of examples of stone sculpture from the 1950s
until the present day, it showcases the work of artists past and present,
from Zimbabwe and other countries of the southern African region such
as Zambia, Angola and Mozambique. Introductory essays give an overview
of stone sculpture in Zimbabwe, reflect on the role of the National Gallery
and Tengenenge, and document the rise of the independent sculptor
and the extended family in Zimbabwean stone sculpture. The
final essay is on sculpture, street-craft and reproduction. The book is
a joint publication with The Embassy of France in Harare, and the texts
and accompanying notes are translated into French. Doreen Sibanda is the
Executive Director of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe.
