Through Feb. 4. This exhibition features one of the foremost Haitian artists working today, Edouard Duval-Carrié, who makes paintings and sculptures that translate Haitian culture into modern terms. This multi-part altarpiece, created at the time of increased migration of Haitians to the United States, casts central Voudou deities, or Iwa, as modern figures such as a superhero, a stripper and a GI. The central wall of the altarpiece, whose form echoes that of a Catholic church, will be accompanied by seven freestanding or floating assemblages referring both to the migration of colonists and slaves to Haiti and to the migration of Haitians to the United States and other countries. This exhibit also will include a selection of recent paintings by Duval-Carrié that continue the dialogue on the history of colonialism in the Americas. Museum hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays, Thursday evenings until 9 p.m. and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission: $7 adults, $6 senior citizens, $4 children ages 4-12 years, free for children younger than 4 years/active military members, spouses and children/museum members/after 5 p.m. Thursdays.
