The NSU Art Museum in Fort Lauderdale and Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach open two new art exhibits this week.
In South Florida, museums in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach launch two can’t-miss exhibits this week, both of which will run through the summer.
The NSU Art Museum (part of Nova Southeastern University) in Fort Lauderdale’s “From Within and Without: The History of Haitian Photography” opens June 25 and runs through October. Some 350 works span the late 19th century to the present, and feature documentary, commercial, and official state photography—encompassing everything, subject-wise, from portraits to images of Haitian architecture and political unrest.
Visitors can attend a 6 p.m. panel discussion June 25 about the exhibition, moderated by Haitian-American artist and exhibition curator Edouard Duval-Carrie. The event will include exhibition artists, such as photographer Gary Monroe. Monroe shot Haiti in the 1980s as part of a Fulbright fellowship, and is the author of the 1992 book “Haiti.” His 1986 photograph, “Untitled, Dessalines (Abandoned palace with 365 portals),” is featured in the exhibition.
