Distinguished Visitors 2010-11

The Cogut Center brings to the Brown community the most innovative and important new scholarship through various programs of short and longer-term fellowships for distinguished visitors. In April 2011, the Center hosts this distinguished visitor:

Edouard Duval-Carrié is considered to be the leading Haitian artist of his generation. With more than 30 solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Paris, and Chicago, Duval-Carrié's work has made an aesthetic statement which has reconfigured Haitian art . Drawing from different genres of painting while mixing and re-adapting figures and images from Europe, Africa and the Caribbean, he has produced an astonishing range of work. Duval-Carrié's art combines African fables, classical mythology, Haitian and world history with contemporary events using amultiplicity of codes, signs, symbols and mythology that has effectively created an aesthetic of layering. 

Many essays and articles have  been written about him with perhaps the most important being Donald Consentino's Divine Revolution: The Art of Edouard Duval-Carrié .  (UCLA Fowler Museum, 2004)

As a Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Cogut Center, Duval-Carr will deliver a public lecture and a master seminar, as well as participate in many of the activities related to the campus-wide exhibit of Haitian art, "Re-Framing Haiti: Art, History and Performativity."
