>> 2 ÎLES, 2 HISTOIRES, 1 QUARTIER / #375eMTRL
A solo and two group works choreographed for the screen.
2I2H1Q recounts seven pivotal moments in the history of Haiti and Quebec within a global context. As part of Montreal’s 375th anniversary celebrations, the Maison d’Haïti organized a multimedia exhibition designed and produced by Marie-Denise Douyon (curator and visual artist) and Radu Juster (director and photographer).
The interactive nature of the exhibition allows visitors to reflect on their neighbourhood and the bonds that link Montrealers of all different backgrounds to the Maison d’Haïti.
