DESCRIPTION

While Massimiliano Gioni's Venice Biennale has Haitian vodou flags curated by Cindy Sherman, we follow up our current exhibition of Haitian Sculpture with flags and paintings from the ateliers of Grand Rue, Port-au-Prince. These ritual 'drapos' originally made for ceremonial use are nowpart of Haitian contemporary art. Work by Silva Joseph and Edgard Jean Louis (both Vodou priests from Bel Air, Port-au-Prince) joins paintings by Alexander Gregoire and sculpture by Andre Eugene, Celeur Jean Herard and Papa Da.
