From September 13 to December 17:
L'art haïtien - Entre magie et séduction
(Haitian Art : Between Magic and Seduction)

Showcasing a selection of traditional and contemporary paintings and sculptures from Haiti, chosen to illustrate views proposed by art historian Corinne Streicher Anglade, this exhibition highlights the place of naïve art within the broader context of the history and evolution of Haitian art. It results from an initiative of the Association des Artistes de Réminiscences (LADR) and is made possible by loans from generous Haitian collectors.



Welcome

Friends of Naive Art, you have landed at the right place. Whether a professional artist, a Sunday painter, a collector, a gallery operator, a researcher, an educator, a student or passerby, there is something new to stir your curiosity. A wind of another kind is blowing from the paintings of our featured artists. You will be hard pressed to discover how everyday life can become a philosophical quest.

The Collection

Around 850 art works, more than 280 artists, 53 countries, 5 continents! Is there some serious thinking in this naive form of expression? Playfulness can rightly be expected, but subtle questioning of an era or society? Are there strange relationships to your own concerns and whereabouts? Dreams, empathy, desire to better the world and this strong urge to travel into foreign lands and minds are all there, ready to challenge you, as seen in this animation showcasing the permanent Exhibition or our permanent collection .

Come visit us!
