CV: view

Edouard Duval Carrié is a contemporary Haitian artist who was born in 1954, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and currently lives and works in Miami, Florida. He was educated at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts, in Paris, France; and at the University of Loyola Montreal, in Quebec, Canada.

Duval Carrié works can be found in many private collections worldwide and also in important museums and institutions. Among those: Davenport Museum of Art, Davenport, Iowa, USA; Perez Art Museum Miami, Miami, Florida, USA; Musee des Art Africains et Oceaniens, Paris France; Musee de Pantheon National Haitien, Port-au-Prince, Haiti; Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Monterrey (MARCO), Monterrey, Mexico.

Duval Carrié portrays a “Marvelous Reality”, as Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier defined it in the prologue for his book The Kingdom of this World, a story about Haiti that has been a strong influence on the artist. He brings into his work the nearly fantastic world of his country, in images that could be seen as illustrations of myths and legends. However, many of them become clear critiques of the social and political order in Haitian society. Duval Carrié also presents important aspects of Haitian history, including heroes and relevant figures. He comments on the importance of the past on Haitian contemporary society from a historic viewpoint, including the issue of slavery and its weight in the development of the present. Duval Carrié also touches on neuralgic aspects of present Haitian life such as migration and its effects on the country.
