Late Night Talk: The Power of Gold

This event has already passed

The new exhibition The Power of Gold: Asante Royal Regalia from Ghana includes over 200 items of gleaming gold regalia, colorful and intricately woven silk kente cloth, ceremonial furniture, state swords, linguist staffs, and other significant objects related to Asante royals from the 19th through the 21st centuries. Founded around 1701, the Asante kingdom was a very powerful polity in West Africa whose wealth derived from the gold trade with North Africa and Europe. The Power of Gold reveals the splendor of Asante regalia through objects from private and public collections, including works from the DMA's collection.

Join Dr. Roslyn A. Walker, Senior Curator of the Arts of Africa, the Americas, and the Pacific and The  Margaret McDermott Curator of African Art, to explore highlights and key themes from the exhibition.
