Haiti - Social : Opening of the exhibition «Noctambules : the hidden transcripts»
As part of the 7th edition of Transcultural Forum of Contemporary Art which is held around the theme "Creation and counterpowers" from 2 to 11 April in the main cultural areas of the capital https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-13515-haiti-culture-7th-transcultural-forum-of-contemporary-art.html the opening of the exhibition "NOCTAMBULES : the hidden transcripts" realized in collaboration with the "La Fondation AfricAméricA" and the Kolektif 509 ill take place on Monday, April 6 at 7:00 pm at the Villa Kalewès, 99 Street Grégoire à Pétion-ville.

The exhibition will ask which social processes mark the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) in Port-au-Prince as deviant and how homosexuality can manifest itself as a powerful counter-culture in this hostile and heteronormative environment ?

Which are the communal bonds the LGBT in Port-au-Prince create to resist marginalization and heal the wounds of permanent oppression ? Can art be a mechanism to challenge the heteronormative matrix of power by developing particular queer aesthetic sensibilities ? Can we find certain aesthetic codes that resist against a hetero-centrist colonialization of the visual arts? These questions will be discussed in our exhibition through the photographs of Josué Azor, paintings by Mario Benjamin, mixed media by Tessa Mars and a video installation by Maksaens Denis.

All four artists reflect with their works on homophobia and the violence society exerts on queer people. They reflect on the socio-political disobedience of men and women in Haiti who search for possibilities to escape social discrimination and oppression by a dominant hetero-patriarchy.
