T+L Reports: Out of Africa

"Great art can't stay hidden for too long," says Swiss collector Jean Pigozzi, who for 15 years has searched Africa for its most cutting-edge (and, too often, neglected) contemporary artists. Highlights from his collection are on view at Houston's Museum of Fine Arts during "African Art Now: Masterpieces from the Jean Pigozzi Collection" (through May 8; 1001 Bissonnet St.; 713/639-7300; www.mfah.org). The 200 works by 33 artists include Efiaimbelo's modern totems, inspired by Madagascar funeral rituals, and portraits by the late Seydou Keïta, Mali's celebrated studio photographer.
