This immersive exhibition recalls the moment in 1945 when Surrealism descended on a former slave colony - and rewrote not just history, but art history.
To illustrate the story, The Gallery of Everything presents rarely-seen period material by artists from le Centre d’Art d’Haïti, alongside original pieces from the personal collection of André Breton.
Upstairs, highlights include an assembly of cut-outs by metal-worker Georges Liautaud,and a room of rare painted boards by the artist Wesner LaForest. Downstairs the installation includes a rehang featuring rare early works by Hector Hyppolite, Philomé Obin, Wilson Bigaud and Préfète Duffaut.
Other elements on display include early drawings, paintings, sculptures and films, featuring artists such as Rigaud Benoit, Jacques-Enguerrand Gourgue, and Edger Jean-Baptiste.
