Event Description

BROOKLYN, NY, December 16, 2010 - On the eve of the one-year anniversary of the earthquake that ravaged Haiti in January 2010, this collaborative exhibition offers contemporary work by artists who are examining the spirituality, aesthetics, and re-construction of Haiti. Through an open call, visual, performing and literary artists - as well as musicians and filmmakers - were invited to submit work that is centered on a conceptual rethinking of the cosmological and socio-political conditions in Haiti at the present moment. Over twenty artists were selected to participate in Re-Imagining Haiti featuring works in painting, photography, video, installation, illustration and mixed media. The exhibition will be on view at CCCADI from January 13th to May 8th, 2011 and at MoCADA from January 20th to May 8th, 2011. The Opening Receptions will take place at CCCADI on Thursday, January 13th from 6-9 PM and at MoCADA on Thursday, January 20th from 6-10PM. The openings will have refreshments, music, and the opportunity to meet the featured artists and the exhibitions' curators.

This curatorial partnership also marks the upcoming anniversaries of both CCCADI (35th Anniversary) and MoCADA (11th Anniversary). In response to this joint project, Dr. Marta Moreno Vega, Founder and President of Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute, states: "The aesthetic perspective, cultural mission and social justice African Diaspora work of MoCADA and CCCADI make us natural collaborators in reaching the global diversity of African descendants and the broader community...from Africa, the Caribbean, Latin and North Americas. This is the beginning of a continuing partnership." Both organizations are thrilled to start the New Year commemorating Haitian history, culture and the survivors of last year's earthquake.

Le Projet Nouveau (on view at MoCADA)
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. Artist featured in the exhibition (in alphabetical order) are: Trevor Brown, Nelson Caban, Rebekah A. Frimpong, Erick Girault, Tosha Grantham, Aaqil Ka, J'Renee, M. Scott Johnson with M.S. 57, Stephanie Keith, Rodney Leon & the Soft House Group, Dr. Kokahvah Zauditu-Selassie, Edouard Steinhauer, Michele Stephenson, Wahala Temi, Noelle Theard, Adrienne E. Wheeler, Nathan Williams, and Tracee Worley.
