The Met will return three African art objects to Nigeria

This article was originally published by The Art Newspaper, an editorial partner of CNN Style.Following recent moves by European museums to return African art treasures to Nigeria, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York announced Wednesday that it is sending three objects back to the country. Two of the works, a pair of 16th-century Benin Court brass plaques of a “Warrior Chief” and “Junior Court Official,” were donated to the museum in 1991 by the art dealer Klaus Perls and his wife Dolly, while the third, a 14th-century “Ife Head,” was recently offered to the museum for purchase by another collector.The museum decided to return the works after conducting research in collaboration with the British Museum, with input from the Nigerian National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM). The two plaques had been part of a 153-piece collection of African royal treasures given to the museum by the Perlses 30 years ago that included brass figures, carved elephant ivory, masks, jewelry and musical instruments.Explaining his interest in this work to the New York Times in 1991, Klaus Perls said: “I started buying African art simply because I liked to see it together with the works of the Picasso generation of artists in which I specialized as a dealer. Soon, however, my predilection for Benin art asserted itself, and it became the only kind of African art I continued to buy, until, quite unnoticed, it developed into a collection.”According to the museum, the plaques were taken in 1897 from the Benin Royal Palace, in present-day Nigeria, by British military forces and then entered the British Museum’s collection. Around 1950 or 1951, the London institution transferred them with 24 other items to the National Museum in Lagos.The works were somehow removed from that museum “at an unknown date and under unclear circumstances,” the Met said in a press release, and were sold on the international art market, where they were acquired by Perls. Both plaques have now been deaccessioned by the Met.http://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/316484 Credit: Metropolitan Museum of ArtThe brass “Ife Head,” meanwhile, was offered to the museum for purchase by a collector whom the Met did not identify. The 14th-century work originally came from the Wunmonije Compound near the royal palace in Ife. In 1938, a cache of realistically carved portrait heads created by the Yoruba people were discovered in a construction project at the site, and while most went to the National Museum of Ife, several were taken out of the country, leading the Nigerian government to more tightly control the export of antiquities.According to the Met, the individual who offered the head “had been under the misapprehension that legal title to the work had been granted by the NCMM.” Inquiries made by the museum proved otherwise, it added, and the Met “arranged with the seller and their agent for the ‘Ife Head’ to return to its rightful home.”The Met said it will hold onto the works until the NCMM’s director general, Abba Isa Tijani, can travel to New York to retrieve them. “We sincerely appreciate the transparency exhibited by the Metropolitan Museum of Art regarding issues leading to the return of these objects,” Tijani said in a statement. He added that Nigeria is open to opportunities “for collaborations of all sorts, including traveling exhibitions with many of these exquisite objects,” and that it plans to work “with as many willing partners as possible” on initiatives such as the Digital Benin project, an online archive of items originating from the historical Kingdom of Benin.Max Hollein, the Met’s director, said in a statement that “the retention of these works within Nigeria’s national collections is critical to the well-being of the museum community and to fostering ongoing cooperation and dialogue between the Met and our Nigerian counterparts.” Among the projects that the Met would like to work on with Nigeria, he added, is the planned Edo Museum of West African Art in Benin City.”We welcome the rapprochement developing in the museum world, and appreciate the sense of justice displayed by the Metropolitan Museum of Art,” said Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s minister of information and culture, in a statement. “Nigeria enjoins other museums to take a cue from this. The art world can be a better place if every possessor of cultural artifacts considers the rights and feelings of the dispossessed.”Read more stories from the The Art Newspaper here.

Medecins Sans Frontieres says Mediterranean rescue mission blocked after ship seizure in Italy

In a press release Sunday, the organization called for the “swift release” of its search and rescue vessel “Geo Barents,” which was detained by authorities on administrative grounds in the port of Augusta, Sicily, on July 2.According to the Italian Coast Guard, the seizure was the result of a “periodic inspection” required for foreign ships docking in Italian ports, which “highlighted various technical irregularities that could compromise the safety of the crew and of the people on board.”The ship did not have a sufficient amount of life saving equipment on board, such as rafts and life belts, the Coast Guard statement said. During a 14-hour inspection of the vessel, officials found 22 issues overall — 10 of which were grounds for the ship to be detained, it also said.MSF has said that it is “ready to make all the necessary adjustments.” However, MSF’s search and rescue representative, Duccio Staderini, also claimed that inspections of NGO vessels in Italian ports are “long and thorough, aiming at finding irregularities in order to prevent the ship from returning to sea to save lives.”We are faced with a crushing reality: while humanitarian NGO vessels are detained, lives continue to be needlessly lost in the Mediterranean,” he added.Italy has borne the brunt of migrants landing on European shores, with over 10,400 arrivals in the country in 2021, the UNHCR added.A UN report in May found the European Union was partly to blame for deaths of migrants crossing the Mediterranean due to unanswered distress calls, obstruction of humanitarian rescue efforts, and so-called “pushbacks” to Libya.So far this year, at least 500 people are known to have died trying to make the dangerous sea crossing along the central Mediterranean route, the UN Refugee Agency said in May. That’s a steep rise on the same period last year, where there were 150 recorded deaths — an increase of 200%.Reporting contributed by Livia Borghese and Caitlin Hu.
