ABOUT:

The Nous Foundation, the Historic BK House & Gardens, and Max Jean-Louis are thrilled to co-present their original exhibition, "Haiti-Louisiana: Tides of Freedom," which will be on display from January 12 to March 17, 2024, at the Historic BK House & Gardens.

This groundbreaking exhibition features two collections: 41 works from the Jacques Bartoli Collection of contemporary Haitian art (30 paintings and 11 beaded flags), previously presented at UNESCO in Paris and making its debut in Louisiana, and 36 original paintings and photographs by eight Haitian and Louisianan artists commissioned for the occasion by Haitian-born curator Max Jean-Louis.  

This exhibition aims to commemorate Haiti's 220th anniversary of independence and celebrate the deep-rooted connection between Haiti and Louisiana.

Additionally, throughout the exhibition, the Historic BK House & Gardens and the Nous Foundation will organize conferences, concerts, and craft workshops with Haitian and Louisianan culture bearers for the public to learn about the important contemporary ties.
