Congo Square 1999
Les Demoiselles du Congo Square
by Evita Tezeno
Artist Evita Tezeno reclaims the African aesthetic appropriated by Picasso in 1906. Her passionate collage evokes the rhythmic dances that thundered through Congo Square (now part of Louis Armstrong park) each Sunday a century and a half ago. Masked spirits soar through fragmented bodies. Spring flowers emphasize renewal. A magnificent synthesis of African & Western beauty.
