Tulane to Host Artist & Curator Edouard Duval-Carrié for Talk on Haitian Art & History

November 1st, 2017
6:00 PM

Location
Woldenberg Art Center, Stone Auditorium
Tulane University
New Orleans

Join us at the Woldenberg Art Center in welcoming artist and curator Edouard Duval-Carrié for a talk titled Haitian Art & History at the Dawn of the 21st Century. Duval Carrié portrays a “Marvelous Reality”, a nearly fantastic world of his country in images that could be seen as illustrations of myths and legends. However, many of them become clear critiques of the social and political order in Haitian society. Duval Carrié also presents important aspects of Haitian history, including heroes and relevant figures. He comments on the importance of the past on Haitian contemporary society from a historic viewpoint, including the issue of slavery and its weight in the development of the present.

Edouard Duval Carrié is a contemporary Haitian artist who was born in 1954, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and currently lives and works in Miami, Florida. He was educated at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts, in Paris, France; and at the University of Loyola Montreal, in Quebec, Canada.

This talk is free and open to the public.

This talk is sponsored by The Stone Center for Latin American Studies, African and African Diaspora Studies, as well as The New Orleans Center for the Gulf South.
