New colourful murals adorn the incredible Pyramid of Abidjan on the Ivory Coast. The Deux Cinq Un agency invited selected artists to work on the Pyramid of Abidjan, an architectural jewel of the Ivory Coast that was in disarray.
The celebration of art breathes new life into this emblematic monument of the brutalist and avant-garde movement of the 1970s, a significant piece by architect Olivieri Rinaldo. The symbolic tower has fallen into disuse for twenty years, and the project “Pyramid 2023, tomorrow is already born” aims to give it a second life for its 50th anniversary, curated by Otto Lemon and Elizabeth Saad.
This project welcomes Ivorian and international artists Issa DIABATÉ, KATRE, DOURONE, Pascal KONAN, Annick LIA, Amah Cynthia DONGO SETH ONE and Ezechiel Akpo Essis, the students from INSAAC.
