The borrowing museum is responsible for producing its own graphics, and for construction of a portion of the exhibition furniture.
Vodou offers visitors a unique opportunity to explore the culture and practices of Vodou, without the usual misconceptions that surround this vibrant spiritual tradition – a tradition that remains a significant part of daily life in Haiti today.
Featuring more than 300 actual Vodou objects, the exhibition focuses on their use and significance – both as representations of a spiritual belief system, and as symbols of Haiti’s turbulent history. Texts, audio recordings and video clips enhance this presentation of Vodou, as seen through the eyes of its practitioners.
