Katherine Smith & Jerry Philogene: Myrlande Constant: The Work of Radiance
Tuesday, April 4, 6:30 pm on Zoom
Co-curators Jerry Philogene and Katherine Smith will talk about the Fowler Museum’s current show, the first retrospective of contemporary Haitian female artist Myrlande Constant, who has been creating groundbreaking work for thirty years. Constant’s beaded panels build on the drapo Vodou tradition, depicting the lwa as well as scenes of everyday life conducted in their company, unabashedly visualizing the permeable boundaries between spirits and humans.
Katherine Smith is a curatorial and research associate of Haitian arts at the Fowler Museum at UCLA and a lecturer in the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance. Jerry Philogene is an associate professor in the American Studies Department at Dickinson College.
