An unusual residency has just ended! This time L'Artocarpe was host to 11 people, artists and academic. Coordinated by Alix Pierre, a Guadeloupean academic, who is a professor at the Spelman College in Atlanta  along with Florence Poirier NKPA a member from L'Artocarpe, the entire project was to mix US-based artists from the Diaspora (Mexico, Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic...) with members from L'Artocarpe coming from Martinique, St Martin, Guadeloupe and France.

L'Artocarpe members set up a one-day art shop in order to raise funds for the forthcoming representation of Henri Tauliaut, member of L'Artocarpe at the Biennale of Havana (Cuba).
The money is to be assisting him with all the expenses that her monumental sculpture is going to generate.
Good luck to you Henri!
