The Wider Image: Ghana's Millennial Avant-Garde
Illustrator and artist Sena Ahadji stands next to shoes she has painted for bridesmaids at her cousin's wedding at the house where she lives and works in Accra, Ghana, July 24, 2015. Young artists in Ghana's capital have evolved a new style that is turning heads and challenging accepted notions of African fashion. Their passions span fine art, graphic design, music and, above all, clothes that attract notice in a city where most men wear conservative Western suits or, on special occasions, shirts made from traditional fabrics. "I like the fact that it is creating drama in the minds of the people," DJ Evans Mireku Kissi said. The group publishes selfies on social media, projecting their style to an audience far beyond Accra.

DJ Evans Mireku Kissi (L) plays experimental music during a street performance in Jamestown, Accra, Ghana, June 12, 2015. Young artists in Ghana's capital have evolved a new style that is turning heads and challenging accepted notions of African fashion. Their passions span fine art, graphic design, music and, above all, clothes that attract notice in a city where most men wear conservative Western suits or, on special occasions, shirts made from traditional fabrics. "I like the fact that it is creating drama in the minds of the people," Kissi said. The group publishes selfies on social media, projecting their style to an audience far beyond Accra.

Visitors look at a recreation of what used to be the office of Argentina's former First Lady Eva Peron, at the former Post and Telegraph Palace, now the Kirchner Cultural Center, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, May 22, 2015. With less than a year to go in her presidency, Cristina Fernandez has sought her place in Argentina's cultural history, unveiling Latin America's largest arts complex, housed in Buenos Aires's historic former Post and Telegraph Palace. Named after Fernandez's late husband and predecessor, Nestor Kirchner, the Kirchner Cultural Center's focal piece is an avant-garde bulbous "blue whale" auditorium. The neoclassical building, revamped by local architects, boasts more than 100,000 square meters (1.08 million square feet). It has no permanent art collection, but will stage exhibits, concerts and shows. Critics have called it an above-budget vanity project.
