This event has ended.

Paul Gardère Studio & Skoto Gallery present Goudou Goudou, a solo exhibition of works by Haitian-American artist, Paul Claude Gardère (1944 - 2011). Goudou Goudou is a selection of Gardère’s final series before his death, produced in the aftermath of the earthquake on January 12, 2010 in Haiti. These mixed media works offer a visceral peek into the artist’s personal response to the disaster. Mud relief and carved wood come together with haunted figures and Kreyol text to emphasize the nature, experience, and survival of “goudou goudou” - the Kreyol term for the earthquake, the syllables of which evoke the sound of the shaking earth. The exhibition will be on view during the 8th anniversary of the disaster.

Opening Reception on 2017-12-07 from 18:00 to 20:00
