The Kingdom of This World, Reimagined – Artist Talk
Join the Pensacola Museum of Art for a conversation between curator, Lesley A. Wolff, Ph.D., and the Haitian-American artist, Edouard Duval-Carrié, as they discuss the exhibition “The Kingdom of This World, Reimagined”. “The Kingdom of this World, Reimagined” presents a selection of contemporary work inspired by Alejo Carpentier’s historical novel, The Kingdom of This World, which recounts the Haitian Revolution and its profound impact on the emergent nation. For the book’s 70th anniversary, an international cohort of artists, each with ties to the Caribbean, responds to Carpentier’s innovative storytelling via a dynamic grouping of artworks that interpret the historical chronicling of the Caribbean through visual means. This event is free with limited seating; registration is required.
This program is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Pensacola Museum of Art.
Date/time: September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Presented By:Dr. Lesley Wolff, Assistant Professor in Art History at texas Tech University Edouard Duval-Carrié, Artist and Curator
