A report by Douglas Markowitz for the Miami New Times.
Thanks to rappers like Kodak Black and Zoey Dollaz, Haitian-Americans are more prevalent than ever in popular American culture. But what about les beaux arts? The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami’s latest exhibition, “Metamorphosis,” focuses on Haitian-born painter Edouard Duval-Carrié, whose work dwells on themes of slavery and colonialism. You’ll see slaves turned into animals and boats transfigured into sugar containers, and along the way, your own perceptions may be transformed.
Thursday through November 5 at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, 770 NE 125th St., North Miami; mocanomi.org. Admission costs $5.
