On June 2, my first solo show in the States (I had one in Haiti in 2014) opened at Grandchamps on Bedstuy Brooklyn, around the corner from one of my old apartments. Back then there was very little in terms of food options and hang out spaces when I lived there. And Grandchamps was a small black-owned food shop called Archie’s Grocery (Grandchamps rents to the owners of Archie’s). To be back in the neighborhood in casual Haitian restaurant is sort of full circle. refreshments were served and a very engaging talk took place later in the evening.
Out of his apartment in Bed-Stuy, Haitian DJ Hard Hittin’ Harry has built up a global audience from the spins of a turntable that represent an intersection of cultural roots that touch everywhere from Port-au-Prince to Lagos.
