In the spring of 2018, the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts presented the exhibition Decolonizing Refinement: Contemporary Pursuits in the Art of Edouard Duval-Carrié, co-curated by Art History professors Paul Niell and Michael Carrasco and doctoral candidate Lesley Wolff. The show featured the work of Haitian-born artist Duval-Carrié, who visited FSU to participate in the opening and related multidisciplinary events.
The video below brings the exhibition to life with stunning details and installation views and accompanying commentary by the artist and curators.
Decolonizing Refinement will travel to Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton and the Spady Museum in Delray Beach in the fall of 2018. FAU is launching an interdisciplinary Americas Initiative, and the exhibition will bring various departments into collaboration at that university, including art history, studio art, and history.
