Exhibition at the Yale University Art Gallery, 9 September 2022 - 8 January 2023

One of the most important Yorb sculptors of the twentieth century, Moshood Olṣọmọ Bmigby (ca. 1885-1975) is best known for the spectacular masks he carved for the religious festivals known locally as Ẹpa. Weighing up to 80 pounds and measuring over a metre in height, with intricate superstructures that can include dozens of finely carved individual figures, these masks represent some of the most complex and elaborate works of Yorb art ever made.

This first monograph devoted to the Nigerian artist presents masterpieces from Bmigby's workshop that are now in collections in America, Europe, and Nigeria. Essays situate Bmigby's work within Africa's oldest and most dynamic artistic traditions and analyze his sculpture in relation to contemporary Yorb art, culture, politics, and religion, filling a critical gap in the field of African art history.
