Abstract (English)

Nigerian-born Nzegwu discusses work in various media by seven Canadian artists of African origin. In addition to individual analysis, the author looks at the way the artists' collective expression acquires a different overtone when presented within the multi-dimensional context of African-based aesthetics which puts energized performance at the heart of the aesthetic "spell". Biographical notes. 4 bibl. ref.
