Edwidge Danticat on Art and Exile

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Edwidge Danticat reflects on art and exile, and discusses what it means to be an immigrant artist from a country in crisis. Her book Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist at Work combines memoir and essay to tell the stories of artists, including herself, who create, despite—or because of—the suffering, violence, poverty, and oppression that drove them from their homelands, and continues to haunt them.
