Abstract

A description and analysis of the symbiotic relationship between Vodou-inspired arts and the political, economic, and social calamities that have enveloped Haiti in the last halfcentury, from the Duvalier dictatorships to the recent election of Michel ("Sweet Micky") Martelly. Cosentino particularly focuses on the paintings of Edouard Duval-CarriƩ, the bricolage of Pierrot Barra and Marie Cassaise, the beaded tableaux of Rudy Azor and Myrlande Constant, and the postapocalyptic sculptures of a collective of contemporary Haitian artists who call themselves Atis rezistans.
