Event Description

This year’s exhibition seminar, led by Professor Fredo Rivera ’06, explores the work of Haitian American artist Edouard Duval-Carrié and builds an exhibition around four of his paintings. The nine student curators will draw from the Grinnell College Art Collection and the Waterloo Center for the Arts – the largest public collection of Haitian art in the world – to develop an exhibition and catalogue that places Duval-Carrié’s work in dialogue with a diversity of objects. The curators focus on themes of hybridity and displacement, and how Haitian art and vodou encapsulate African, European, and indigenous traditions. The Faulconer Gallery is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
