The undergrad Art History Museum Object class under the direction of PhD candidate Jennifer Baez is developing the exhibition Regimes of Visuality: Print Culture and Haiti during the Age of Revolution, to open Thursday, April 5 at 6 pm in the WJB Gallery.
The exhibition will feature 18th- and 19th-century prints and maps of Saint Domingue (Haiti/Hispaniola) from the collection of Haitian-born artist Edouard Duval-Carrié. Duval-Carrié visited FSU this spring for the opening of the Museum of Fine Arts exhibition Decolonizing Refinement: Contemporary Pursuits in the Art of Edouard Duval-Carrié (continuing through April 1), and the associated symposium hosted by the Department of Art History. Using the artist’s collection of Caribbean historical prints and ephemera, the class will explore the uses, audiences, and meanings of print media circulating in Haiti and the Black Atlantic during the Age of Revolution (1774–1824).
Regimes of Visuality will be installed in the WJB Gallery through April 26th. The WJB Gallery is open Monday thru Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm
