Size: 96 x 144
About this piece: Haitian-born, Miami-based artist Edouard Duval-Carrié will discuss this large-scale painting and others displayed in his solo exhibition at the Pérez Art Museum Miami involving a series of new works generated over the past year with PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander on Thursday, March 13 from 7 - 9 p.m. The event is open to the public and free with museum admission. Space is limited. First come, first served.
Duval-Carrié is known for his innovative adaptions of traditional Haitian iconography, which he engages to address contemporary social and political conditions and in order to explore the manner in which the tropics of the Caribbean and Florida continue to be sold as tropical paradises in ways that often obscure economic and social disparities that continue to be perpetuated. Contrasting his signature use of strong colors, this project presents works executed in black and silver glitter.
