Legagneur, far from this boisterous claim, remains within a more discreet approach with works that retain a real liberating dimension. Caribbean Fantastic: is an exhibition of about Fifty works (50) by the Haitian master artist. Caribbean Fantastic: is organized by the Florida Africana Studies Consortium of South Florida (FLASC), the Consulate General of Haiti in Miami, Hollywood Artist United for Haiti and the local / international committee.

Caribbean Fantastic: will be accompanied by a series of arts programs and related events designed to highlight Caribbean and African Diaspora aesthetic productions and black contemporary issues in these times of globalization and transnationalism.
