Abstract: The work of the Atis Rezistans, a Port-au-Prince-based artists collective, is inspired by both their spiritual beliefs—the iconography of Vodou is a prominent but not omnipresent motif in the art—and their urban environment: the immediate setting of Grand Rue, as well as the rest of Haiti’s megalopolis, Port-au-Prince. Led by an established Haitian artist, Andre Eugene, the Atis Rezistans use found materials to create powerful representations of their lived experience: religious faith, natural disaster, sexuality, hope for the future.
Funding: Funding provided by NEH collaborative grant.
