A poetic, formal, rhythmic, and discursive immersion in the colour of history, Vincent Meessen. Blues Klair explores the modern Western colonial urge. Numerous illustrations and texts revisit elements of this exhibition that examines three journeys of exile at the end of the 1960s: African American, European, and Caribbean. This book weaves together the voices, sounds, and shapes that make up a blues of exile, drawing out a poetics and politics dedicated to the harmonics of difference.
The publication features texts by Corinne Diserens, Eric Fillion, Harmony Holiday, Vincent Meessen, Matthew Quest, and the exhibition’s curator Michèle Thériault.
