Pioneer Works in New York will open a two-month exhibition of contemporary Haitian art this September, with work by 15 artists on show at the art center’s spacious post-industrial environs in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook. Titled Pòtoprens: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince, the show will focus on artists from the Haitian capital, as curated by the Haitian-American artist/curator Edouard Duval-Carrié and Leah Gordon, an artist and co-director of the city’s Ghetto Biennale.
