The large exhibition of African art shown recently in London, Berlin, and New York provides rich data for reassessing current values and aims in presenting African artefacts to the public. Issues of regional and ethnic bias, questions of authenticity, hostility to modernism, definition of what is art, contestation over ownership of cultural properties, and commercial opportunism all figure in many such public exhibitions. This essay examines some of these problems using this prominent exhibit to illustrate these points.
