MOCA North Miami holds a Symposium around artist Edouard Duval-Carrié’ exhibition Metamorphosis. Including introduction, discussions and remarks in the context of Caribbean Arts and the curatorial process of this solo show, several invitees such as professors: Alfredo Rivera (Grinnell College); Anthony Bogues, (Brown University); Erica James and Jerry Philogene will be present during the symposium; as well as Edouard Duval-Carrié himself.
Duval-Carrié was born in Port-au-Prince; graduated from L’ École Nationale Superiéure des Beaux Arts in Paris, France, in 1989; he currently lives in Miami, Florida. His work reflects the culture and history of Haiti with references to the Voudou religion and has been shown in solo exhibitions in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, France, Mexico, and across the United States. Two of the artist’s works are displayed as public commissions in Miami: a 1996 piece for the Jefferson Reaves Rehabilitative and Health Center and The Lady of Miami at One Miami Riverwalk.
