MIAMI, FLA.- The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU, a Smithsonian Affiliate and one of the largest academic art museums in South Florida, announces its exhibition, “Everything, Earth and Sky: An Exhibition of Haitian Art.” The museum is home to one of the largest collections of Haitian paintings from the 1980s and 1990s in the United States and this exhibition and its accompanying catalog supports its ongoing efforts to make its collection accessible through research and digitization.

The exhibition also includes contemporary Haitian American artists Vanessa Charlot, Mark Delmont, Edouard Duval-Carrié, Mark Fleuridor, Madjeen Isaac, Abigail Lucien, and Asser Saint-Val as well as paintings from the collection by Gerard Fortuné, Alexandre Gregoire, Maxan Jean-Louis, Eddy Myrthil, and Fritzner Obner, among others.

This exhibition signifies FIU’s commitment to sharing the stories of diverse, rich cultures and personalities of Haiti as well as to providing a platform for local artists who share their unique perspectives that meld their cultural heritage with life in South Florida.

“Everything, Earth and Sky” highlights a theme prevalent in Haitian art, the depiction of space. From schools, communal plazas, and government buildings to Haiti’s fauna and the ever-present ocean, these works present different interpretations of physical space and the use of public places. Some works clearly relate contemporary political challenges in Haiti and others portray the rich and varied iconography of the country.

“This is the first exhibition that presents Haitian art from the perspective of private and public space. The Frost Art Museum’s core collection of paintings by Haitian artists allows us to showcase the rich cultural heritage and artistic traditions of that Caribbean country and help our students and other visitors learn about this period of increased recognition of Haitian art in the international art world,” said Jordana Pomeroy, director of the Patricia & Phillip Frost Museum FIU.
