An upcoming solo exhibition at the new Perez Art Museum in Miami will feature the work of acclaimed Haitian artist Edouard Duval-Carrié’s.

The exhibition, “Imagined Landscapes,” which officially begins on Thursday, will debut with an opening night conversation with the artist and with curator Tobias Ostrander.

Duval-Carrié’s work is concurrently being exhibited at the Pan American Art Projects gallery alongside fellow artists Gustavo Acosta and Carolina Sadi.

That exhibition, located in Miami’s Wynwood arts district, is called “Made in Miami.”

Duval-Carrié’s, a native of Port-au-Prince, grew up in Puerto Rico and spent time studying in Canada and France.

His work often includes images of voodoo, classical mythology and the national heroes of Haiti, with hints of magical realism.

Now living in Miami, this is the first major exhibition by a Haitian artist at the Perez Art Museum, which opened at the end of 2013.
