Carnival in Jacmel

Visiting Artist Lecture: Didier Civil

Didier Civil is a celebrated Haitian painter and papier-mâché artist,
and the founding director of an art school in Jacmel, one of the towns
devastated by the recent earthquake and cholera outbreak. In this talk,
he will show projections of masks and costumes from the repertoire of
Haitian carnival, and talk about the history of carnival and its art-forms.
His visit to UBC is co-sponsored by the Department of Art History,
Visual Arts, and Theory and the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery.
