Mapping Influences

As a project centered on re-envisioning narratives of Haiti and its arts, user engagement is essential. We are in an exciting moment when scholarship on Haitian art is expanding and diversifying beyond dominant tropes and canons. This map, gathered with data from our initial research in 2019, presents the location of organizations and museums with Haitian art, the size of their respective size. Through navigating the map, one can explore specific information including name, specific location, and approximate number of works in a collection. We hope to expand upon this map in the future, and envision new cartographies of Haitian art and its global imprint.
