The African Studies Gallery and Kuchinate – African Refugees Women’s Collective, are pleased to announce the opening of an ex ‘Vodou Flags’,hibition of outstanding Haitian Vodou flags along side new works that were created by Kuchinate especially for the exhibition.

The workshop at the Kuchinate studio in 104 Sderot Har Zion St. in Tel Aviv, which will be open to visitors seeking to learn about the work process, will host artist Zoya Cherkassky and Gil Yefman, who will illustrate the flags together with the Kuchinate women.
