The Herve Telemaque retrospective at the Clement Foundation is symbolic and promises to be one of the most important cultural events of Martinique in 2016. The French artist of Haitian origin, known for his work combining various techniques, from paint and collage to woodcarving, is having his first major exhibition outside France, following on a major retrospective at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. The Clement Foundation has showcased art installations since 1986 in a century-old rum mansion surrounded by lush vegetation. This Martinican cultural institution has just reopened with a new building designed by architects Reichen et Robert & Associés. With 74 paintings, sculptures, and graphic works, all odes to the West Indies, Herve Telemaque opens a new and decidedly ambitious era at the foundation.
