Kongo Fair

NOMA Opens Kongo: across the Waters



New Orleans prides herself on the fusion of cultures that combined to build the city we now know. One of the most commonly cited example of those evolutions is jazz’s origins in Congo Square. The New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA)’s new installation, Kongo: across the Waters aims to illustrate how the art of a different Kongo evolved through other influences and eventually came to influence the fabric of the American South.
