Book Launch, Continental Shifts, The Art of Edouard Duval-Carie

NEW YORK - On a beautiful and cool evening on March 27th, 2008, the well-known Haitian artist, Edouard Duval-Carrie launched the publication of his new book, “Continental Shifts.” That wonderful event took place at New York University's Maison Française located on Washington Mews, University Place in Manhattan, New York. This particular chef-d’œuvre of Edouard Duval-Carrie was edited by Dr. Edward J. Sullivan, Dean of Humanities and Art Historian from the New York University.

Edouard talked about the "Vodou religion" as well as its saints from Africa and Haiti. Also he underlined how this religion is reflected in his paintings.

Further, an interesting power point show displayed Edouard’s painting collections with the story or meaning behind each piece. The public responded positively to the presentation as the artist answered to its questions with grace and humor. It was a wonderful evening that enabled people of different backgrounds to learn certain aspects of the Haitian culture and on the same breath, satisfy their curiosity on subjects pertaining to the Vodou religion.

Kirking, Chief Art Information Resources at The New York Public Library; Mireille Chancy-Gonzalez, President of Haitian Cultural Art Alliance; Dr. Charles Fombrun; Patricia Cruz, Executive Director of Harlem Stage; Monique Duval and daughter Nathalie Rey( Edouard's aunt and cousin); Dr. Fabienne Laraque of the Department of Health for The City of NY and her husband ,Alice Blanchet; Linda Mellon from “FOKAL”; Taina Glaude from the United Nations; Andrea Couture, Vice President of Near East Foundation; Ingegerd Nissen Petersen; Mr. and Mrs. Andre Juste, Haitian Artist; Yolaine Milfort from Haitian Consulate in New York; Yolaine Legrand, Haitian Artist; Dr. Aglae Charlot,Myriam Nader, Haitian Art Curator; Gina Cheron and Harry Fouche from the Consortium for Haitian Empowerment; Anthony Cherubin, CEO of Fineness Design & Publishing; Rev.Daniel Ulysse; Ginette Beauvais; Fred and Beety Kern; Evelyne Coradin, and many more.
