Festival Tout-Monde turned Miami as a Caribbean art scene [fr]
In the presence of Christiane Taubira, Cultural Ambassador of the festival and former Minister of Justice of France, the Tout-Monde festival was launched on March 1st, 2018 at the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) with an inaugural conversation between Dr. Michael Dash and Edwidge Danticat on Edouard Glissant’s concept of the “Tout-Monde”. The festival closed on March 4th at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex, with an Award ceremony that rewarded artist Kenny Dunkan with the Tout-Monde prize offering a one month residency at Fountainhead in Miami.
Over four days, more than twenty artists and authors from the Caribbean presented their performances and creative productions in all fields – visual and performing arts, music, film, academics – in four emblematic cultural venues, representing each a different cultural heritage, community and neighborhood in Miami: the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), The Wolfsonia-FIU, the Little Haiti Cultural Complex and Mana Contemporary/Wynwood.
The festival, first Caribbean Contemporary Arts festival, is an initiative of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the USA, in close partnership with the France Florida Foundation for the Arts, and curated for its first edition entitled Hétéronomonde by Johanna Auguiac & Claire Tancons.
