The Benue River Valley is the source of some of the most abstract, dramatic, and inventive art works in sub-Saharan Africa. This exhibition, organized by the Fowler Museum at UCLA, is the first major view of the spectacular sculpture, ceramic objects and video material representing the major artistic genres defining the Lower, Middle, and Upper sub-regions of the Benue River Valley, starting at its confluence with the Niger River and following eastward to its upper reaches around the Gongola River, its major tributary.
