Tournée des Alliances
Journée Internationale de la Francophonie
MARCH 20 | From 9:30 A.M (ET)
LIVE via Zoom & FACEBOOK LIVE @ www.facebook.com/AFMiamiMetro
Celebrate International Francophonie Day by traveling the world with Québécois poet and writer Webster and the Alliance Française of Chicago. This world tour will transport you to different Alliance Française locations, including India, Brazil, Colombia, St Lucia and Miami!
In Miami, at 3:20 PM (ET) you will discover the work of Edouard Duval Carrié, artist and curator of the exhibition Global / Borderless Caribbean XII
About Edouard Duval Carrié
Edouard Duval Carrié is a contemporary artist and curator based in Miami, Florida. Born and raised in Haiti, Duval Carrié fled the regime of “Papa Doc” Duvalier as a teen ager and subsequently resided in locales as diverse as Puerto Rico, New York, Montreal, Paris and Miami. Parallels thus emerge between the artist’s cosmopolitan lifestyle and his artistic sensitivity toward the multifaceted identities that form his native Haiti. At heart, Duval Carrié is an educator: he challenges the viewer to make meaning of dense iconography derived from Caribbean history, politics, and religion. His mixed media works and installations present migrations and transformations, often human and spiritual. Recently the conceptual layering of Duval Carrié’s works has been further emphasized in his materials and through consistent attention to translucent and reflective mediums, such as glitter, glass, and resin. The introspective effects of these mediums transform his works into spatial interventions that implicate the viewer in their historicity. At their most fundamental, Duval Carrié’s works ask the viewer to complicate the Western Canon, to consider how Africa has shaped the Americas, and how the Caribbean has shaped the modern world.
About the exhibition
Global/Borderless Caribbean XII: Focus Miami presents Contemporary Visual Expression, Local Global, and Dèjá Vu 2020 marks the 12th anniversary of the Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance’s ongoing exhibition series, Global Caribbean/Borderless Caribbean. It is also an unusual year when the public stands more than ever to benefit from contact with the arts. Social distancing creates a challenge for Art Basel, Miami Art Week as well as all institutions and organizations devoted to the arts in general but yet it presents an opportunity to develop creative solutions. This year, The Haitian Cultural Arts Alliance with its long term partner, The Little Haiti Cultural Complex will celebrate this partnership by reopening, of course within the parameters dictated by this ongoing pandemic, with various exhibits focusing on their commitments to the visual arts stemming from this community, this city, and the Caribbean region.
