Shaping Power

July 29, 2013

On view now in LACMA's newly minted African art gallery space, Shaping Power: Luba Masterworks from the Royal Museum for Central Africa showcases the artistic achievements of the Luba peoples. The traditional style of elegant and organic forms found in Luba artwork reflects the vibrant and robust history of one of the most influential kingdoms from Central Africa. In the video below, curator Mary (Polly) Nooter Roberts provides an overview of the exhibition and all that can be learned in this impressive display.
