Unbreakable Spirit

Fowler in Focus: Art and the Unbreakable Spirit of Haiti

January 9–May 22, 2011

Showcasing selected works collected by the Fowler Museum over many decades, Fowler in Focus: Art and the Unbreakable Spirit of Haiti juxtaposes pieces fashioned for the international art market with those used in Vodou ceremonies and popular seasonal festivities in order to explore how crucial aspects of the Haitian experience are made tangible. Sparkling sequined banners and colorful Christmas ornaments, fanciful animal masks, painting of historic moments, understated crucifixes and spirit-activated bundles known as pakèts demonstrate the capacity of artistic creativity to powerfully encapsulate the tragedies and triumphs of a nation.
