THE HAITIAN HERITAGE MUSEUM
Featuring the work of Alexis Peskine, the Alexis Peskine: Power Figures Solo Exhibition presents a rich background through his work, in which he explores both the Black Experience and the world of the refugee, forced to exist between fixed boundaries of state and identity. Growing up in Paris, Peskine speaks of witnessing institutional racism and a severe lack of multi-cultural representation in the media and public sphere. His practice, reflective of this, focuses on the complexity of themes impacting people from the African Diaspora. His signature pieces are large-scale portraits rendered by the painstaking process of hammering nails of different lengths and diameters, with pin-point accuracy into wood to create breath-taking composite images. Opening Exhibition: Wednesday December 5 at 6:30 pm.
