Undergraduate and graduate students may apply to participate in a collaborative studio art project with renowned Haitian artist Edouard Duval-Carrié, who will be on campus on September 3, 4, and 5, and December 7, 8, and 9. The artwork, using resin and transparencies for a stained glass effect, will be designed on the theme of disaster, cultural fragmentation, and the recovery “montage” visible throughout the area affected by the earthquake. Students will work not only with Edouard Duval-Carrié but also with Duke faculty artist participants, as well as with Dubois and Jenson on historical materials to be considered for the design. The project will culminate in the artist’s presentation of the impact on the earthquake on Haitian art, and the collaborative process and images of the artwork, in the Provost’s Lecture Series on “Natural Disaster and Human Responses.” The finished artwork will be exhibited on Duke campus. Option to take for .5 credit (ROMST 190A) or 1 credit (ROMST 190).
