Following the Flow of Indigo in Africa
Pamela McClusky presents a virtual tour of indigo through time and place in Africa. Learn how indigo dye was used in ancient Egypt and by the Tuareg "Blue People", then Nigeria, the Cameroon Highlands, Ghana and Togo. Visit the studios of artists in Mali and Tunisia - Aboubacar Fofane and Rachid Koriachi - whose use of indigo leads to visions of architectural grandeur. McClusky is Curator of African and Oceanic Art at the Seattle Art Museum.
