“Continental Shifts: The Art of Edouard Duval-Carrié” Book Launch at NYU, Mar. 27

March 4, 2008
N-313, 2007-08

A special event held to launch the publication of the book Continental Shifts: The Art of Edouard Duval-Carrié (Haitian Cultural Alliance/Arte al Dia ), edited by Edward J. Sullivan, will take place at New York University’s Maison Française (16 Washington Mews at University Place) on Thursday, March 27, at 6 p.m. The Haitian artist Duval-Carrié will be the featured guest. The book launch is free and open to the public; for further information, call 212.998.8750 or visit www.nyu.edu/maisonfrancaise.

Continental Shifts features the magical realism captured in both painting and sculpture by Duval-Carrié, whose art exhibits a dynamic blend of Afro-Caribbean culture, fantasy, and spectacular ornamentation.

Duval-Carrié will discuss his work with Sullivan, the book’s editor and NYU dean of humanities; Michael Dash, professor of French at NYU; and Sarah Lewis, an art historian at Yale University.

“Edouard Duval-Carrié is one of Haiti’s most distinguished modern artists,” says Sullivan. “Completely trained in the classical manner in ateliers in Paris, Montreal, and the U.S., he departs from the visual traditions usually associated with the mid-20th century ‘Haitian School’ artists and updates them through a careful and deliberate manipulation, imbuing his images with the iconography of voodoo spirituality, Haitian politics, and the trauma of life as it is lived in a nation in flux.”
