On the cover of the CRB: Little Crippled Haiti

The cover of the May 2007 issue of the CRB features the painting Little Crippled Haiti (mixed media on aluminium, 48" x 48"), by the Haitian artist Edouard Duval Carrié. (Biographical information here.)

Duval Carrié is one of the artists participating in an event called Haiti Now!: Art, Film, Literature, which will be hosted by the St Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies (in partnership with the University of Liverpool) from 15 to 17 May, 2007. The programme builds on that of UWI’s 2004 Haitian bicentenary conference, and asks how Haitian culture is adapting to the realities of the 21st century. Participants will include American writer Madison Smartt Bell, Haitian artists Mario Benjamin, Maksaens Denis, and Jerry Philogene, Trinidadian artist Christopher Cozier, and scholars Elizabeth Walcott-Hackshaw, Martin Munro, Charles Forsdick, and J. Michael Dash. All events are open to the public, and entry is free.

(You can see other examples of Duval Carrié's work at the website of the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery.)
