iciHaiti - MUPANAH : Exhibition «The faces of Liberty»
"The Faces of Liberty" (Les visages de la Liberté) is an artistic exhibition at the Haitian National Pantheon Museum (MUPANAH) which is inspired by different moments in the history of Haiti. It aims to recreate and consolidate our past through symbolic faces evoking the sufferings, pains and especially the determination for the conquest of Freedom and Independence.

"These works are a reflection of inspiration, they speak for people who are no longer silent" specifies Jean Claude Legagneur, the main curator of the Faces of Liberty.

The exhibition draws the visitor into the atmosphere of "walking towards freedom" with a collection made up of masks of different colors, drawings and pictorial works.

It has three stages :

The first moment introduces the notion of freedom represented by a woman who symbolizes life. He also evokes the coffee (mountain plantation) which allowed Haiti to consolidate its Freedom.

The second moment of the exhibition consists of a Memorial: a slave ship. This memorial symbolizes a tribute to the many who died during the crossing to the lands of America.

The third moment focuses on evocative faces from the different tribes of Africa by emphasizing their tragic experience in the holds of the slave traders and in the colonial dwellings.

The "Faces of Liberty" exhibition ends with a focus on Haiti's role in the universality of human rights. It is a form of advocacy for the "Unity of the human race".
