About the Author

Allison Moore has a PhD in Art History from the Graduate Center, City University of New York, and has published in numerous journals and exhibition catalogs.


"Allison Moore's Embodying Relation examines the history of the Bamako art photography movement through its institutions and its aesthetics and the profound effect of transnational encounters on the agency of art photographers in Mali. She provides art historians with a comprehensive analysis of the most important site of photography discourse in Africa, thus bridging the disciplinary boundaries that usually narrate African cultural production outside the pale of art history. Research in photography in Africa provides a great platform for linking African art history to global art history by locating both in a coeval contemporaneity. As such, the importance of Moore's orientation for art history cannot be overemphasized." -- Sylvester Okwunodu Ogbechie, author of * Making History: African Collectors and the Canon of African Art *
