The gallery for more than 50 years has continued to strive to be the avant garde of the artistic and cultural development of Haiti; and this despite all the socio-political turmoil, the misadventures and the ups and downs of this singular little country of fiercely individual creators. Galerie Monninâ€™s history is especially the story of a family deeply anchored to the realistic and the imaginary HaÃ¯ti.
GaÃ«l Monnin, third generation of the gallery's legacy established in 1956, a communication, public relations and computer science specialist carries on with determination the heavy load of responsibilities that her grand-father, Roger Monnin, and father, Michel Monnin, have legated to her.
