Royals & Regalia: Inside the Palaces of Nigeria’s Monarchs

Recent Photographs by George Osodi

on view at the Newark Museum

Thru August 9, 2015

 

Royals & Regalia: Inside the Palaces of Nigeria’s Monarchs presents 40 visually stunning portraits from a new series by acclaimed Nigerian photographer George Osodi. Exhibited for the first time in the U.S., these vibrant color photographs feature the regional rulers of modern-day monarchies throughout the country. They provide audiences with a rare and intimate look inside Nigeria’s palaces and throne rooms, capturing the personalities of the rulers, the splendor of their dress, and the details of their settings. The near life-size photographs will be shown to dramatic effect along with select examples of prestige dress and regalia from the internationally renowned collections of the Newark Museum.

 

Hassan Hajjaj: My RockStars

on view at the Newark Museum

Thru August 9, 2015

 

Hassan Hajjaj: My Rock Stars presents a video installation by Moroccan-born, UK-based artist Hassan Hajjaj, along with a related series of photographs, in a salon installation designed expressly for the exhibition. The video, My Rock Stars Experimental, Volume I (2012), recently acquired by the Newark Museum, pays tribute to individuals who - though they may not all be famous - have inspired the artist personally.  The video features nine separately filmed performances by an international group of musicians and singers whose influences include hip-hop, jazz, as well as Gnawa (traditional North African spiritual songs by descendants of enslaved West Africans).

 

These exhibitions kick-off a two-year celebration of the Museum’s collecting of African art. A major reinstallation is targeted for completion in 2017, the centennial year of the Museum’s African art collection.

 

These exhibitions were made possible by a grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
