Exhibition Grand Opening:The World As I know It; Recent Works by Edouard Duval Carrie

October 27 @ 8:00 pm

This exhibition gathers over twenty-five mixed-media engravings and one large-format sculpture by Haitian-American artist Edouard Duval-Carrie. Works are filled with references to Caribbean history and literature, as well as to its popular religions and culture. The Haitian Revolution and other historical passages; the popular stories of the Loas or saints in the Vodou belief; slavery and the life and myths of symbolic characters such as Haitian slave Ti Noel, the central figure of author Alejo Carpentier´s novel, The Kingdom of this World, are recurrent themes. Special thanks to Pan American Art Projects and Robert Borlenghi.
