The University Galleries at Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters presents “Decolonizing Refinement: Contemporary Pursuits in the Art of Edouard Duval
-Carrié” through February 2, 2019.
Duval-Carrié is an internationally significant Miami-based Haitian-born artist who creates colorful, socially and politically-oriented narrative art that channels his knowledge and fascination with Haitian history, spiritual beliefs and folklore. For “Decolonizing Refinement,” originally presented at The Fine Art Museum at Florida State University, Carrié’s art is combined with historical artifacts related to Florida’s agricultural labor history. Artifacts are borrowed from south Florida regional historical collections to expand understanding of Caribbean visual culture and the arts of the African Diaspora by implicating the colonial heritage of Florida and the broader Southeastern United States in circum-Caribbean histories.
