Haiti's Men Nou Gallery Brings Post-Earthquake Rubble Art to Miami
January 29, 2011
Ruth Goldman and Ira Lowenthal, owners of Men Nou Gallery in Petionville Haiti, have curated an exhibit at MiMo Art Gallery and Custom Framing on NE 79th St that highlights post-earthquake art by select Haitian painters, sculptors and flag makers. The show, which runs through February 14, also features large-scale canvases by the renowned muralist Jerry Rosembert Mose. Among the prominent contemporary painters represented are Maxan Jean-Louis, Magda and Ramphis Magloire – all well-known acolytes of the St. Soleil school of Haitian art. A group of younger artists from Jacmel present their immediate response to the earthquake in the form of “rubble art” – a new medium of therapeutic and artistic expression that has already been featured in the New Yorker on-line and as a featured segment on Public Radio International (PRI).
