DESCRIPTION

Le Projet Nouveau brings together 18 artists whose work presents ideas about the re-construction of Haiti. The exhibiting artists draw upon political, cultural, architectural and socio-economic themes to propose what can be offered towards the re-shaping of the first black republic.  The exhibition highlights the aesthetic response of artists to the turbulence that has plagued the nation since it gained independence from France in 1804.  The artists in the exhibition use their practices to visualize Haiti’s future by re-imagining the country through its people, its culture, the African Diaspora, and its artistic legacy.
