Vincent MeessenBlues Klair

30.00 EUROS

« A poetic, formal, rhythmic, and discursive immersion in the colour of history,  Blues Klair attempts to elucidate Western colonial modernity’s urges to conquer, classify, and immortalize. Numerous illustrations and texts by Corinne Diserens, Eric Fillion, Harmony Holiday, Vincent Meessen, Matthew Quest and Michèle Thériault revisit elements of this exhibition that examines three journeys of exile at the end of the 1960s : that of Gylan Kain, the African-American poet precursor of rap at the end of the 1960s, of the writer and critic Patrick Straram living in exile in Montreal in the late 1950s and of the Caribbean students involved in a racial uprising at Sir George Williams in the late 1960s. Voices, sounds, and shapes calling for a blues of exile, a poetics and a politics dedicated to the harmonics of difference. »
