Haitian painting is easily recognizable and known for its brightly painted, orderly planted fields, tropical landscapes and detailed imagery. Do not expect typical Haitian painting from Edouard Duval Carrié. Carrié’s paintings are indeed provocative; they combine African fables, classical mythology, Haitian and world history with contemporary events.
Duval Carrié will be revisiting Brown University this February for a two-week residency at the John Carter Brown Library, in preparation for an April residency at the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice. During which time, along with distinguished Brown professor Anthony Bogues, he will make use of the library’s resources to create works and and co-curate an exhibit based on his research at the University.
