Saturdays at the Stanley – Hidden Powers: CT Scanning the Stanley’s African Art Collection @ Stanley Visual Classroom, Iowa Memorial Union, third floor
Sep 21 @ 2:00 pm

Through a partnership with UI Hospitals and Clinics Department of Radiology, Stanley museum staff used computer tomography (CT) scanning technology to view the interior contents of more than a dozen objects from sub-Saharan Africa. Join Cory Gundlach, Curator of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, to explore the concealed dimensions of African art and how advanced technical analysis aids the interpretation of the Stanley Museum of Art permanent collection.

Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum’s collection to audiences in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building!

2019-2020 Saturdays at the Stanley events are sponsored in part by Little Village.

“Amazigh Women’s Arts: Visual Expressions of Berber Identity” by Cynthia Becker @ Art Building West, room 116
Sep 26 @ 7:30 pm

Amazigh people (Berbers) are indigenous to North Africa. In Berber culture, women play a central role in creating the aesthetic and symbolic forms that make Amazigh identity unique, and they achieve considerable status and respect. Motherhood is highly esteemed by the Berbers, and women incorporate symbols and colors that relate to fertility into their textiles, clothing, tattoos, and hairstyles, as expressions of female agency. In this lecture, Cynthia Becker, Associate Professor in the History of Art and Architecture Department at Boston University, considers the artistic legacy of the Berbers within North African history by examining the creative output of Amazigh women. Despite societal influences that have changed daily life in Berber communities, women continue to produce and use art inspired by ancestral forms—especially during rural weddings—demonstrating the crucial role women play in preserving Amazigh heritage.

Professor Cynthia Becker is a scholar of African arts specializing in the arts of the Imazighen (Berbers) in northwestern Africa, specifically Morocco, Algeria, and Niger. Her research has been supported by a Fulbright grant and several grants from the American Institute of Maghreb Studies. Professor Becker has served as a consultant for numerous museum exhibitions and published articles.  Her book Amazigh Arts in Morocco: Women Shaping Berber Identity was published by the University of Texas Press in July of 2006. Her forthcoming book, Blackness in Post-Slavery Morocco: A History of Gnawa Visual and Performing Arts considers the history of the trans-Saharan slave trade and its implications on material culture in northern Africa. It will be published in 2020. Other projects include the visual culture and history of the Mardi Gras Indians of New Orleans (her hometown).
