Juror: Edouard Duval-Carrié
Haiti, born 1954; lives and works in Miami, FL

Exiled Haitian painter and sculptor Duval-Carrié draws upon the complexities of French heritage in post-Duvalier Haiti. Recent works explore the migration of not only the Haitians leaving Haiti, but the voodoo gods leaving as well. His personalized deities are a blend of transplanted West African religious lore and 18th century French Rococo, employing tropical colors and modern day stories of corruption and displacement. His pictorial language is based on the fantastic images created by his predecessors: the painters so-called “primitive” due to their freedom of expression and “naïve” due to their straight-forwardness.

Duval-Carrié received his B.A. at the University of Loyola Montreal, Quebec, Canada (1978) and furthered his formal training at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts, Paris, France (1988-1989). He is represented by Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, Miami, FL and has exhibited within the United States and internationally: Miami Museum of Art, Miami, Florida (2000); Halle St. Pierre, Paris, France (2000); Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix, Arizona (2002); Arcuate Galeria, Mexico (2003); Musee National d’Haiti, Port-au-Prince, Haiti (2004); Museum of Art, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (2004); and Figge Museum of Art, Davenport, Iowa (2006)

Museum Director's Statement

The annual USF Juried Student Art Exhibition offers emerging artists the opportunity to have their work reviewed by an artist, curator or museum professional working outside of the University and to see it presented in a museum environment.

The University and Tampa Bay community can view the work of our undergraduate and graduate students nurtured by the faculty of the School of Art and Art History. Edouard Duval-Carrié has been invited to serve as the juror this year. He is a painter living and working in Miami and is known for combining African fables, classic mythology, Haitian and world history with contemporary events. He will select the exhibition from over 160 artworks submitted by the students and designate the awards.

Over the past 31 years we have been fortunate to have our students’ artwork reviewed by many distinguished jurors, including: Marcia Tucker, Roberta Smith, The Guerilla Girls, The Art Guys, Jerry Saltz, Elyse Goldberg, Allan McCollum and Robert Stackhouse.

I extend my appreciation and thanks to Edouard for traveling to Tampa and for his thoughtful evaluation of our students work as he selected the works for the exhibition and awards. Thanks to the Contemporary Art Museum staff, for once again organizing the student show: Alexa Favata, Victoria Billig, Don Fuller, Peter Foe, David Waterman, Randy West, Shannon Annis, David Reutter, and intern Jonathan Karellas. Tony Palms and his staff — James Rodger, Amber Cobb, Denton Crawford and Jordan Starr-Bochicchio designed and installed the exhibition and coordinated the entries and assisted the juror. Lesley Brousseau is recognized for making the arrangements for the reception and related events. In addition, I thank the staff at Graphicstudio including: Kristin Soderqvist, Noel Smith and Nicki Kruszka, for assisting Edouard Duval-Carrié with his lecture.

Each year, a group of loyal friends from the community along with the faculty and staff of the School of Art and Art History, and Graphicstudio, join the museum in recognizing the outstanding quality of our art students by contributing monetary awards. We are very appreciative of this support, as it adds to the vitality and excitement of the exhibition. Please note the names of the generous contributors listed in this brochure.

Congratulations to all the artists in the exhibition and to the award recipients.

CONGRATULATIONS to the students included in the 31st Annual USF Student Art Exhibition. I know that the faculty joins me in sharing in this celebration. Through your imagination and critical thinking, you bring a unique vision and contribution to research in the visual arts at the University.

The arts have been instrumental in the maturation of the University and, indeed, the entire Tampa Bay region. The Student Exhibition features many artists who are the future cultural leaders of the community – and beyond. Increasingly, our students are becoming active artists in cities across the US.

Thanks to all of the staff members of the Museum as well as the students who have worked on this exhibition. Also thanks to the faculty, institutions, and private citizens who have provided support and awards for our students and this exhibition. Your belief in our mission is gratifying.

A very special thanks to the juror this year, Edouard Duval-Carrie, who thoroughly reviewed the submitted artworks, met with our students and provided an insightful lecture.

I am always struck by how fortunate we all are to be so thoroughly engaged in the best of both worlds: learning and art. We welcome the community to our annual celebration. Enjoy!
