The High’s African art collection includes a diversity of art forms, from masks and textiles to beadwork and ceramics. Explore fan favorites, as well as newly installed works, with the Lauren Tate Baeza, the High’s Fred and Rita Richman Curator of African Art.
From 10 to 11 a.m., we’ll gather on the Orkin Terrace for coffee and conversation before enjoying an hour-long guided tour of the African art galleries.
Lauren Tate Baeza joined the High Museum of Art in November 2020 and now oversees the African art collection of more than one thousand objects. As a scholar, she has researched African political and economic phenomena through the lens of cultural geography, specifically examining the spatial history of food culture and artistic practices within the continent and across the Atlantic. Prior to joining the High, Baeza served as director of exhibitions at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.
