Global/Borderless Caribbean

Art of Black: The Little Haiti Cultural Complex and the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance (HCAA) present the work of Haitian artist Emmanuel Merisier. Drawing influence from European modernism, Haitian art and popular culture, Merisier presents a unique oeuvre that explores the spiritual and the modern. Merisier, born 1929, combined bright colors, alluring figures, and a propensity of symbols and markings. His work breached a new frontier within Haitian art. Drawing from the collection of the Waterloo Center for the Arts in Iowa, the 10th iteration of the HCAA’s Global/Borderless Caribbean exhibition series focuses on the work of this under recognized artist, positioning Haitian painting within a global modernist tradition. Curated by Alfredo Rivera and Edouard Duval-Carrie. Organized by Marie Vickles.

Opening Vernissage and exhibition are free and open to the public
