Stating that the Caribbean Contemporary Art reaches a slight visibility on the international art market and acknowledging that the Caribbean artists have very few opportunities to meet and share their work, a large exhibition has been set up in one of the major locations for Contemporary Art: “Art Basel Miami Beach”.
The exhibition “The Global Caribbean” with Edouard Duval Carrié as Director – an internationally recognized Haitian artist living in Miami and fine connoisseur of Caribbean Art. ‘The Global Caribbean” is the occasion to discover the “Little Haiti Cultural Complex” as well which is a magnificent cultural facility recently built by the city of Miami and dedicated to the Haitian culture and to the Caribbean at large.
The exhibition gathers twenty-three artists living or coming from the different countries of the region with among them artists from Martinique, Guadeloupe and Puerto-Rico.
Beyond the singularity of each creator, several common themes come up close to the social and economic situation of those territories, the exchanges between local cultural traditions and international modernity and the issue of gender, in particular in the work of female artists.
