An Introduction to Haitian Art

June 15th-30th, 2017

Alex Latour, founded THE smARTest PROJECT in London in 2015 as a collaborative platform initially representing Haitian art and artists, with plans to progressively integrate international artists from many more points on the globe.

The objective of the THE smARTest PROJECT is to advocate and raise the profile of the artists involved, and to afford them a better opportunity to develop and sustain their careers by bringing their work to a wider audience. The goal is to return the  profits from a world of art that is relatively unknown to projects that have a long-lasting social and economic impact.

THE smARTest PROJECT work with other outsider groups to create art events featuring new and as yet less well known, or even known unknown names, in spaces not usually reserved for art shows. Way beyond the gallery circuit. The next show, Transvision - An Introduction to the World of Haitian Art at the Black and White building in EC2, is co-curated by Creative Debuts.

Transvision promises "the ingenious supra vision of Haitian artists." Through their eyes, you will step into the unseen, the magic, the poetic, the inner creativity of Haiti. Beyond any prejudice, any normality, Haitian artists will offer you a new experience of seeing and living art. Alex says, "A new era for Haitian Art and Art globally has just started."

The artists include Gino Tintin, Kayava, Levoy Exil, Makenol Profil and more.

Launching on June 15th with an evening of Haitian Music it's not to be missed, admission is free although advanced booking is recommended through EventBrite. The show was initially planned to run until June 23rd, but has been extended to June 30th.
