“A Personal Journey” brings together seventy-five highlights of central African art formerly in the Lawrence Gussman Collection, now dispersed among the exhibition's three organizing institutions: The Israel Museum, Jerusalem; the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, State University of New York; and the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C. “A Personal Journey” opens at the Neuberger Museum on September 30 and continues through January 13, 2002. It will travel to the Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa (February 10, 2002–April 7, 2002), the National Museum of African Art (June 9, 2002–August 14, 2002), and the Israel Museum (fall 2002). In conjunction with the exhibition, the Neuberger Museum will host an interdisciplinary symposium, “Reconsidering the Arts and Cultures of Central Africa,” on October 20, 2001. The symposium will provide a forum for the presentation of recent research on central African art and culture by nationally recognized scholars of anthropology, art history, and archaeology. The companion catalogue (168 pp., 8 b/w & 78 color photos, map, bibliography; $35 softcover), with an essay by Christa Clarke and object entries by Clarke, David Binkley, Bryna Freyer, and Douglas Newton, will be distributed by the University of Washington Press. This article is based on Clarke's essay, “Beyond Borders: A Collector's Vision.”
