A panel discussion with exhibition curator Yelaine Rodriguez and artist Fabiola Jean-Louis.
RSVP via EventBrite.
Fabiola Jean-Louis is a Haitian born, fine artist and photographer currently based out of Brooklyn, N.Y.. As a little girl growing up in New York, Fabiola was surrounded by art and fascinating characters. Her imagery seamlessly blends magic with the mundane and reality with the speculative to bring unseen worlds out of hiding. With a style that is haunting, moody, dreamy, magical, and mysterious, along with her talent for visual story-telling, Jean-Louis stands out as an artist to be watched. Although she has only been working at her craft for four in a half years, she is already making waves as a visionary who can manifest diverse patterns of space-time, sci-fi, costume design and surrealism within the worlds of her art. Fabiola’s critically acclaimed work has already been featured in: Artnet News, Atlantan Modern Luxury, Art Critical, Atlanta Journal Constitution, BK Reader, Blavity, Fashion Studies Journal, HuffPost, MFON: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora, MOYI, and StyleBlueprint. Her current iteration of Rewriting History is being exhibited by, Smithsonian affiliated, DuSable Museum of African American History.
*Organized by 2019-20 Latinx Project curatorial fellow Yelaine Rodríguez in conjunction with the exhibit AFRO Syncretic, which is on view at the King Juan Carlos I Center until March 15, 2000.
