#262: art exhibition of Rejin Leys in Port-au-Prince
From: Rejin <email@example.com>
Rejin Leys, of this list, is having a solo exhibition of her works in
Port au Prince during the upcoming Diaspora Week events. This
exhibition is sponsored by the Ministere des Haitiens Vivant a
l'Etranger, the Route de l'Esclavage Project and the Atelier Jean
Rene Jerome. The exhibition opening is on Thursday August 19 at the
Atelier Jerome (7 rue Capois, near Champs de Mars, 221-7045).
The works featured in this show include artist's books as well as
works on paper, dealing with the themes of labor, migration and
slavery. The series was initiated during the coup period and the
refugee interdiction policy that followed, and links the Middle
Passage, the "boat people" phenomenon, and the international
migration of labor.
