From the WGBH Forum Network: "New York University professor Susan Vogel, a renowned museum founder and specialist in African art shares her eight-minute film Fang: An Epic Journey covers the adventures of an African sculpture as it moves from Cameroon in 1910 to America in the 1970s. Vogel discusses the film and the shifting meanings of art objects, first among the Baule of Ivory Coast and then as they appear in the wider world."
