African Masks on Display at Reese Bullen Gallery

African Masks from the James Gaasch Collection will be on exhibit February 10 through March 10 at HSU's Reese Bullen Gallery.

The exhibit features masks in HSU Emeritus Professor, James Gaasch’s private collection from the countries of Burkina Faso, Mali and Côte d'Ivoire.

Accompanying the masks on exhibit are photographs and text, which provide context for understanding the artists, materials and tools utilized, dancers wearing the masks and celebrations surrounding their use.

In conjunction with the exhibit, on February 10-12, HSU’s Department of World Languages and Cultures in partnership with the Departments of Art, Anthropology, and Critical Race, Gender & Sexuality Studies are offering a seminar course exploring Africa’s past, present, and future: Masks and Cultures of West Africa. This seminar provides students with an opportunity to learn about African worldview, explore Africa’s past, present and future and engage in learning more about the African masks through discussion and interaction with the exhibit.

Quijeremá coming to HSU!

Thursday, October 11 2012, 7:00 PM
Gist Hall Theatre
Quijeremá flyer (pdf)

Quijeremá is a dynamic force driven by sweeping bandola choruses with a firm foundation of acoustic bass and the deep reverberations of the Cajón, a Peruvian "beat box." Melodies are based in the percussion, interwoven with trumpet and the complex rhythm of Venezuelan maracas. Quijeremá's current work Al Son del Tunduki is a musical journey to unearth and celebrate the importance of the African Diaspora in the Americas.
