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 Michele Theriault.
