Internationally acclaimed Haitian American sculptor and painter Edouard Duval-Carrié displays a series of resin and plexiglass artworks inspired by the complex histories of the Caribbean, including slavery, migration, colonialism and Afro-religious practices. Also included are engravings from a recent artist residency in South Africa. Duval-Carrié’s work has been shown in Paris, New York, Madrid and Venice. In 2016, he was awarded the Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government and in 2018 he received the Michael Richards Award and a commission at The Bass contemporary art museum in Miami.
