Summary:
The collection is comprised of photographs taken by Susan Vogel in Côte d'Ivoire during the 1970s. Most depict the Baule peoples, including during their Goli Dance in Bokpli.
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of (482) color slides and (381) black and white negatives taken by Susan Vogel. Her negatives, taken between circa 1972 and circa 1986, primarily depict the arts and culture of the Baule people of central Côte d'Ivoire. In particular, Vogel extensively documents scenes of Goli dance performances and the variety of masks and instruments used therein. Also included are several images of wooden figure sculptures—alone or as a part of ancestral shrines. Other Baule art pieces documented within Vogel's negatives are ancestral stools, diviners' gongs and mallets, war belts, and bo mun amuin masks. Several of these images are published in Baule: African Art, Western Eyes (exhibition catalogue, 1997). Vogel also documents puppet masquerade performances among the Bamana people of Mali.
Arrangement note:
Negatives arranged chronologically. Slides were arranged by the donor.
