“PÒTOPRENS: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince”
Wednesday October 24 2018 - Sunday November 11 2018
This selection of 25 artists working in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince is an eye-opening look at the creative vitality of a city that’s often dismissed as an economic basket case. Despite very real challenges like Haiti’s huge disparity between rich and poor, the contributors here have developed flourishing artistic practices that include sequined Vodou flags, stone and wood carvings, and found object assemblages that reflect the country’s dynamically mixed cultural heritage.
