7 pm Artist Talk: Edouard Duval-Carrié
Free Admission

Haitian artist Edouard Duval-Carrié will introduce his exhibition Endless Flight, and speak about the current state of Haitian art.

Born in Haiti, Duval-Carrié moved to Puerto Rico as a child, when his parents fled the Duvalier regime. He studied at Loyola College in Montréal and at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris, and now lives and works in Miami. His first exhibition was held at the Centre d’Art in Port au Prince, which helped launch the careers of some of Haiti’s most renowned painters and sculptors. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions worldwide, including at the Figge in 2005. The Figge was the first museum to acquire his work, and his portrait of Dr. Walter Neiswanger, founder of the museum’s Haitian collection, is on view in the museum.
