An installation in the Pioneer Works garden pays tribute to Port-au-Prince's innumerable barbershops, which are not only fundamental to the city’s social cohesion but are unique sculptural objects in their own right. Often constructed and furnished with offcast materials, the barbershops are distinguished by vivid portraits of both foreign and domestic athletes, rappers, and models. Organized by Richard Fleming, the installation at Pioneer Works features newly commissioned portraits by painter Michel Lafleur, and will provide visitors the opportunity to get a haircut from a Haitian barber. Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 7, 7-9pm.
