Revue Noire, African Contemporary Art - African Canada July 1997

"Communities that assert a past in order to better root themsleves in the present are one of great paradoxes, As though unavoidable, to fill the haze, the gaping void of a country whose history remains to be written"

Simon Njami, 'Canada The Invention of Identity'  Revue Noire

"In urban metropolises, no-one is certain of their identity.  The borders of identity become obsolete, impossible to verify.  As the figure of modern exile, works of art bears witness to the role of migration and multicural education in the inner labour of creators who experience  double exeriorization"

Joel Des Rosiers, Haitian/Quebec Doctor and Poet -  'Foreign Lands'  Revue Noire
