HAITI ART AND CRAFTS

05 18 12 / 05 20 12

Little Haiti Cultural Complex

THE STATE OF AFFAIRS

Overview

Show Full Overview Hide Full Overview

The date January 12, 2010 has been forever seared in the minds of many. Fast forward two years later and the following questions arise. What is the current state of affairs? How is the country thriving? What type of arts and crafts is being produced?

Art is a fascinating study especially after debilitating and tragic events have occurred. Art itself is a healing mechanism and reveals much about the artist’s pain and journey to recovery, both emotionally and financially. When the Haitian Arts Alliance learned about the devastation that ensued after the earthquake, Edouard Duval-Carrie and Mireille Chancy-Gonzalez immediately jumped into action and the Haitian Art Relief Fund was born. Artists across the globe donated artwork to raise funds to help struggling Haitian artists regain their footing and their livelihood. A special thanks goes out to all who contributed to the Haitian Art Relief Fund. The seed money raised was used to commission Haitian artwork and the proceeds went back to the Haitian artists thereby ensuring a stream of work and their means of survival. This new initiative as well as many others is a continuation of the ongoing efforts by the Haitian Art Relief Fund.

VISIONARY APONTE

11 05 19 / 12 01 19
GALERIA ORIENTE – PARQUE DE CESPEDES, SANTIAGO DE CUBA

Visionary Aponte: Art and Black Freedom takes as its point of departure an extraordinary—and now lost—historical artifact: a so-called “Book of Paintings.” Its creator was José Antonio Aponte, a free black carpenter, artist,and former soldier who was also the leader of an ambitious antislavery conspiracy in Cuba in 1812. During his trial, Aponte was forced to provide testimony describing each of the pictures in his book. They portrayed a wide array of subject matter, from Biblical scenes to landscapes to…
