Caribbean Visual Arts in Miami

Three forthcoming exhibits in Miami feature the work of Caribbean artists.

Bruce Weber: Haiti/Little Haiti opens at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami on Nov. 18. The exhibition features Weber’s images of Little Haiti, some culled from a supplement shot for The Miami Herald in 2003, plus photographs of Liberty City and the Miami-shot films Liberty City is My Paris and A Letter to True.

Embracing Modernity: Venezuelan Geometric Abstraction opens Oct. 13 at Florida International University’s Frost Art Museum. The exhibit covers a rich terrain, the origins of the country’s abstract movement from the late 1940s to the ’60s.

Global Caribbean II is the next installment of a much-acclaimed show artist and curator Edouard Duval-Carrié, who runs the Cultural Alliance in Little Haiti, mounted last year at the Little Haiti Cultural Center. This year for Art Basel, he has commissioned four young artists living in Haiti to do installations, the modern horrors of their homeland fueling great art.

  1. So some of these works are going to be on display at Art Basel Miami this year? Awesome, I’m looking forward to seeing them in person! I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to find a place to stay for it, but luckily I found a vacation rental from this site called MetroFlats.com.
