The Kingdom of This World, Reimagined.

Works by contemporary artists Dudley Alexis, Jose Bedia, Edouard Duval-Carrie, Scherezade Garcia, Simryn Gill, Leah Gordon, and Roberto Juarez.

The exhibition celebrates the 70th anniversary of Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier’s historical novel, The Kingdom of This World (1949), a descriptive and imaginative dive into the volatile epoch of the Haitian Revolution (1791 – 1804).

The exhibition brings to life the slippages of past and presents manifest in Carpentier’s text through a dynamic grouping of contemporary artworks, each of which responds to the novel’s vivid and violent descriptions of colonial enslavement and the struggle for Black freedom and nation.

PÒTOPRENS: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince.

Co-curated by Haitian-American artist and curator Edouard Duval-Carrié and British artist and curator Leah Gordon, and organized by Pioneer Works Founding Artistic Director Gabriel Florenz with special advisor Jean-Daniel Lafontant.

Over 20 artists working in the Haitian capital, the exhibition highlights Port-au-Prince’s many diverse centers of cultural production, informal street life, religious heritage and mythologies to create a compelling portrait of a historically significant and intensely complex city in flux.

The exhibition presents a diverse group of sculptures including sequined Vodou flags, stone and wood carvings, and found object assemblages, most of which have never before been seen in the United States. The sculptural installation mirrors the organization of the city itself by highlighting specific districts in Port-au-Prince where art is produced—each with its own particular subjects, forms, and materials.

Battleship Potemkin

Curated by Rafael Domenech.

The artists involved are Vivian Chiu, Justin Cloud, Alejandro Contreras, Dana Degiulio, Jose Iraola, Michael Joo, Jon Kessler, Jonas Mekas, Jeffrey Meris, Ernesto Oroza, Bat-Ami Rivlin, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Tomas Vu, Fischli and Weiss, Ayoung Yu. On view until August 24.

“Battleship Potemkin” takes its title from the 1925 black and white, silent film by Sergei Eisenstein that remarkably served as inspiration to many of Francis Bacon's convulsive portraits. Consequently, it is the purpose of this exhibition to create a forum that explores disjunction, time, space and cinema as concepts for art making.
