Haitian-born artist Edouard Duval-Carrié addresses an audience at the Allen Memorial Art Museum for the museum’s First Thursday lecture series, which takes place on the first Thursday of each month. Duval-Carrié gave a talk focusing on his painting Justicia, which he created as a response to the 18th-century Haitian Revolution. The painting, now on display in the AMAM’s Latinx exhibit, is one of the artist’s better-known works. After studying at L’école Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and attending universities in Canada, Duval-Carrié blossomed globally. A prolific artist, his work has been featured in various galleries amd museums and as installation art worldwide.
