The Museum of Fine Arts will hold an opening reception on February 16th from 6-8PM for “Decolonization Refinement: Contemporary Pursuits in the Art of Edouard Duval-Carrié”, developed by Curatorial Team of Dr. Paul B. Niell, Michael D. Carrasco, and Lesley A. Wolff, in collaboration with Haitian born painter and sculptor, Edouard Duval-Carrié.  In the works to be displayed, Duval-Carrié engages themes associated with the history of the Tallahassee area and North Florida region, including plantation agriculture, race, and slavery. His vibrant paintings, sculptures, and installations will be accompanied by plantation artifacts loaned from State of Florida collections, including a portion of a nineteenth-century sugar mill, and objects from The Grove Museum  and Goodwood Plantation Museum in Tallahassee. The exhibition will run February 16-April 1, 2018.
