OPEN CALL | Artistic Residency at Le Centre d'Art, Haiti
Le Centre d’Art is setting up a synergy project for artistic creation and artistic analysis in the Caribbean, thanks in particular to UNESCO’s International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFDC).
The project Implementation of a Network for the Creation and Dissemination of Caribbean Art, aims at creating a link between Haiti and Caribbean places of creation, and to promote the practices of Caribbean artists, especially women, to strengthen the Haitian cultural sector. For two years, artistic residencies will be set up, and will end with an exhibition and a widely distributed publication.
“The ability of humans to participate intelligently in the evolution of their own system is dependent on their ability to perceive the whole”
Toussaint L’Ouverture, Jean Price Mars, Aimé Césaire, Marcus Garvey, Frantz Fanon, Derek Walcott Long is the list of illustrious men who have shaped the Caribbean countries as we know them today. What about Caribbean women? University theses on the role of women are rising but they are not taken for the general public. Art has the power to make accessible fundamental values and principles, which are too often convoluted. This project aims at highlighting the role of women in the construction of the Caribbean.
ABOUT THE RESIDENCY
For this segment of the residency programme, Le Centre d’Art will host one Jamaican artist for one month in Haiti from July 1st to 30th, 2020.
