21.12.2012, Queens, New York
Legendary painter Geo Remponeau, who was born in 1916 in Port-au-Prince Haiti passed away in Queens, NY where he resided for 47 years. He was my grandfather, mentor and greatest inspiration. Rest in peace PaGeo.
"Georges Remponeau, Legendary Haitian Artist, one of the co-founders of the Centre d'Art in the 1940s. He was a great artist who brought pride in the way he painted the rural Haitians and the landscape of his land of birth, Haiti. He was a teacher, a mentor, a Father, a joyful and generous man endowed with a sense of humor and a philosophy of life that allowed him to love and respect all. He was well traveled and everyone who met him always remembered him. He touched many generations and leaves us with a sense of innate self worth as Haitian, as Humans! He was a wonderful man revered by his community, his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He is missed but will never be forgotten. We love you Pageo!" Jany Tomba, daughter

ARC Magazine is a Caribbean art and culture magazine dedicated to highlighting emerging and established artists. In this new issue: "Educator and writer Janice Cheddie investigates the formal works of Sasha Huber who investigates familial and historical bonds with Haiti while confronting sites of colonization and belonging. Huber claims a space and the right to construct narratives that challenge and question historical assumptions. Her self-representation suggests a renaming and unveiling, one which positions creolized subjects as an important constituent of history."

Press Release of the "De-mounting Louis Agassiz" Committee:
RENAMING OF AGASSIZHORN REJECTED BY THE COMMUNITIES WHO SHARE THE SUMMIT. PLANS FOR AN AGASSIZ EXHIBITION.
In their letter dated end of July 2010, the three communities who share the Agassizhorn summit (Grindelwald BE, Guttannen BE, Fieschertal VS) have rejected the petition to have the Swiss Alpine peak of 3953 metres above sea level renamed. 2500 men and women from all over the world had voiced that demand because in the 19th century Agassiz was one of the champions of the so-called "scientific" racism and a pioneering thinker of apartheid, who had commissioned the photo of Renty, a slave from the Congo, to be taken, in order to prove the "inferiority of the black race". The "De-mounting Louis Agassiz" committee, who had demanded the renaming since May 2007, is sadly disappointed by this decision and particularly deplores that even the submitted compromise of giving the name of "Rentyhorn" to an unknown peak in the vicinity of Agassizhorn has not met with the approval of the Oberland communal authorities.
The De-mounting Louis Agassiz committee accepts this decision, which has been taken in a democratically correct manner. During the so-called "round table talks" between representatives of the committee and the authorities from the Bernese Oberland in September 2010, the idea of an exhibition in the local history museum introducing the general public to the "dark side" of Louis Agassiz was put forward by the Mayor of Grindelwald. The committee would very much like to get back at this proposition and is inclined to take up work on such a venture in the months and years to come, an exhibition which could notably also be shown in Guttannen and Fieschertal.
In the meantime, the racism of Louis Agassiz has definitely become an international issue. The Swiss-Haitian artist Sasha Huber has exhibited in Helsinki's museum of contemporary art Kiasma her project "Rentyhorn", for which she symbolically renamed the peak and in whose context she has edited the book Rentyhorn (ISBN 978-951-53-3267-7). These days she will exhibit at the program curated by Capacete on the occasion of the 29th São Paulo Biennial her latest photographic work Agassiz: The Mixed Traces Series as well as the video Louis Who?. Moreover, she co-edited the book (T)races of Louis Agassiz: Photography, Body and Science, Yesterday and Today (ISBN 978-85-63537-02-7) together with Brazilian historian Maria Helena P. T. Machado, with texts both in English and Portuguese. For the first time ever, the book will print some forty of the photographs which Louis Agassiz had commissioned during his journey to Brazil in 1865-66 in order to prove – just like in the case of the South Carolina daguerreotypes – the "inferiority of the black race" and the mixing of races, which to Agassiz was the most repulsive of ideas. These photographs are as well part of the exhibition.
The Rentyhorn book was part of the artist book exhibition Volume Collection curated Nemanja Cvijanovic at Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice.
