Haiti Exhibition
Haiti Exhibition

Focusing on Haitian art from the 19th century to the present day, the exhibition takes an approach that is at once historical, social and cultural. Against a background of urban chaos and vigorous popular culture, this exploration of the visual arts aims to go beyond the archetypes of naïve and primitive painting and transcend the restrictive magico-religious and exotic vision associated with Haitian art.With nearly 150 works, Hyppolite's Kiss or the Art of Haiti presents art free of any rigid framework, readily mingling poetry, magic, religion and political commitment thorough a great variety of forms, blurring the boundary between art and the street, between a world of forms and everyday life.

Curators: Régine Cuzin, freelance curator, founder of the association OCEA, Paris and Mireille Pérodin Jérôme, director of the Ateliers Jérôme, Port-au-Prince

This exhibition is organized by the Reunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais
