Congo Masks and Music: Masterpieces from Central Africa
Beautifully illustrated with over 84 full-color photographs of stunning and rare masks, instruments, and costumes from the late 1800s to early 1900s, this catalog was published in 2019 for MIM’s special exhibition, Congo Masks and Music: Masterpieces from Central Africa. The catalog also includes archival photography and text written by the exhibition’s curators, Manuel Jordán, PhD, MIM’s deputy director and chief curator, and Marc Felix, MIM board of directors member and international expert on African art.
Congo Masks and Music explored the connections between masks and musical instruments and reflected the diverse settings of masquerades. Masquerades take place for a variety of reasons—to educate, entertain, demonstrate power, and connect humans with the spirit world.
