The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College presents “The Art of Haiti: Loas, History, and Memory”—curated by Anthony Bogues (Brown University)—which opened on February 10 and will continue through May 20, 2018. The center is located at 30 West Dale Street, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Description: The Art of Haiti: Loas, History, and Memory is a major exhibition that explores the contemporary significance of Haitian art. Working in collaboration with the Centre d’Art in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the Fine Arts Center will present paintings by some of Haiti’s major 20th century artists. The exhibition will also feature new works by internationally renowned artist Edouard Duval-Carrié, as well as works by Haitian contemporary artists Tessa Mars and Ralph Allen. This exhibition will challenge commonly held ideas about Haiti as a site of exotic strangeness within the Americas, and offer new ways of understanding Haitian art.
The Art of Haiti is curated by Dr. Anthony Bogues, Asa Messer Professor of Humanities and Critical Theory; Director, Center for the Study of Slavery & Justice; Professor, Africana Studies at Brown University.
