Thomas Seligman is the Freidenrich Director of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford and is a specialist in the art of West Africa.
He graduated from Stanford in 1965 with a BA in political science. After receiving his MA/MFA in art and art history at the School of Visual Arts in New York he served in the Peace Corps in Liberia, where he taught African art history and studio art and directed a small museum of African art. In 1971 he founded the Department of the Art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas at the de Young Museum in San Francisco.
He has organized numerous exhibitions of African art and has taken several groups on tours to West, Northern and Southern Africa. He has focused his last 20 years of research on the Tuareg peoples of Mali, Niger and Algeria and is currently at work on a major exhibition and catalogue of their art and culture.
After decades of research, Tom Seligman (69-70) finally gets to share the stories and experiences that he gathered while traveling with the Tuareg, the North African nomadic tribe known for its desert survival skills. As director of Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center, Seligman has taken the opportunity to display objects the center has borrowed from a number of museums including the Musee Quai Branly in Paris, the Musee d’ethnographie in Switzerland, and the UCLA Fowler Museum. Seligman also personally collected a number of items over the years which are displayed in the Cantor Arts Center. Visitors to the exhibit will see functional objects used by the Tuareg including bags, swords, jewelry, and camel saddles. The exhibit also includes the photographs Seligman has taken of the Tuareg people, their camels, and their innovations in a catalog that accompanies the show which will travel to the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art this fall. It is the largest display of its kind to be shown in the United Statesand the first to tour nationally.
