Solo exhibitions will open at the Abrazo Interno and LES Gallery featuring Patricia Brintle in Ayiti mon amour and Diógenes Ballester in Breathing History: Chapel of Reflection , respectively . Brintle is a Haitian, self-taught and full-time artist. She emigrated to New York City in 1964 but travels to her homeland every year. Brintle’s art does not follow a particular style, rather, it responds to the moment. Her art calls the viewer to a thoughtful reflection as they discover something new in the Haitian life, culture, and history. Brintle’s art bridges the gap between the Haitian on the island and the Haitian Diaspora.Ballester is a renowned visual artist, writer and educator from Ponce, Puerto Rico and has lived in New York City (East Harlem) for the past 40 years. The creation of his installations is derived from his experiences in Paris, New York, Asia, the Caribbean and of course Puerto Rico. Ballester is a self-defined “arteologist”, or an artist who consciously engages in this multiplicity of roles as an artist: 


The works allude to a fundamental history of the Indigenous, Black, and Mestizo America, the America where Spanish, Portuguese and French are spoken. Our Bori-Ayiti is a celebration of the Antillean brotherhood / sisterhood and our humble homage to the Haitians who, with enduring sacrifice, opened the way for an ever-elusive equality.
