As the first comprehensive publication on the artist’s work, this book elucidates the multi-facetted explorations of Haitian Canadian artist Manuel Mathieu. The publication focuses on how Haiti has informed a large body of work produced by Mathieu over the past few years. Positioned at the fault lines of modern political and environmental crises, Haiti epitomizes a global longing for freedom, and grassroots resistance to imperialist and capitalist exploits. At the center of this body of work is an examination of the long-lasting repercussions of Haiti’s pioneering revolt against slavery and its quest for self-determination, which have led in more recent decades to embroiling the nation in the intrigues of the Cold War.

Manuel Mathieu (born in Port-au-Prince, 1986) lives and works in Montreal. Mathieu was an artist in residence at Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart (2019-20), and the Pamela Joyner and Alfred J. Giuffrida residency program, Sonoma CA (2019). Recent solo exhibitions have been held at Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (2020); HDM Gallery, Beijing (2019); The Armory Show, New York (2018); Tiwani Contemporary, London (2017); and Institute of Contemporary Art, London (2015). He has participated in numerous group exhibitions held in Canada, the United States and Europe, including Fondation Phi, Montreal (2020); Pérez Art Museum Miami (2019); Frieze London (2018); Art Basel (2017); and Grand Palais, Paris (2014). Mathieu was one of the artists recognized by the 2020 Sobey Art Award.
