Princeton Day School Presents “Currency and Costume in Pre-Colonial Africa” at the Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery, 9/8-10/2

The Anne Reid ’72 Art Gallery at Princeton Day School kicks off the 2014-2015 season with the installation of “Currency and Costume in Pre-Colonial Africa,” an exhibition featuring a collection of 19th and early 20th century textiles as well as bracelet, knife, and anklet currencies from across the African continent. This exhibition opens at the gallery on Monday, September 8 and runs through Thursday, October 2. The exhibition has been curated to illustrate the distinct customs and artistic traditions of many of the more than 3000 ethnic groups that inhabit the African continent. It illustrates visually through items of traditional costume and currency the differences and similarities among these ethnic groups while exploring the traditions that informed the items. There will be a reception and gallery talk given by the curator (and PDS parent) Isabella de la Houssaye on Friday, September 12 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Join us!
