With the two year mark of the Haiti earthquake approaching, the tides are moving towards revitalization…through bricks, mortar, and even the culture of its people, undeniably Haiti’s greatest natural resource. While the focus up until now has been on building homes for people still living in the tent cities, Jacmel, often described as Haiti’s most beautiful city and one of the country’s few tourist destinations, is, perhaps, the place of hope where an art revival is also leading to the county’s revitalization. During this year’s Art Basel, the “Les Jacmeliens 2011” exhibition marks the official launch of the first art exhibition that bridges Haiti’s renowned Arts District in Jacmel Haiti with the Art District of Miami. “Les Jacmeliens” debuts a group exhibition that will feature works by two Haitian artists from Jacmel - Dufo and Carel Blain - together with works by local Haitian-American contemporary artist Reynald Poisson.
