IN THE STUDIO
MOREL DOUCET

STUDIO SERIES

Morel Doucet (b. 1990) is a Miami-based multidisciplinary artist and arts educator that hails from Haiti. He employs ceramics, illustrations, and prints to examine the realities of climate-gentrification, migration, and displacement within the Black diaspora communities. Through a contemporary reconfiguration of the black experience, his work catalogs a powerful record of environmental decay at the intersection of economic inequity, the commodification of industry, personal labor, and race.

REMEMBERING
DR.DAVID C. DRISKELL

Prizm Panels

In 2018, Prizm had the honor of hosting A living Legacy conversation featuring Distinguished University of Maryland Professor Emeritus of Art David C. Driskell in conversation with the David C. Driskell Center’s Executive Director, Professor Curlee R. Holton as part of the “Living Legacy National Speaking Tour”. Their conversation highlighted Driskell’s contributions as an artist, scholar, and cultural historian and the contributions of African American artists to the American art canon. Dr. David C. Driskell was a giant, a mentor to many, and an unwavering ambassador for the arts.

REMEMBERING
MARVIN FABIEN

PRIZM PERFORM

In 2017, Nyugen Smith(USA/Trinidad/Haiti) and Marvin Fabien (Dominica/Martinique) presented, Lest We Forget, a multi-sensory performance derived from their on-going dialog related to the impacts of hurricanes and climate change in the Caribbean and the most venerable parts of the United States. Marvin Fabien had a penchant for, through his hypnotic use of sound, conjuring the aesthetics of the popular music culture of the Caribbean whilst simultaneously rendering hair raising Digital Performances that address key issues affecting the Caribbean region. Fabien was easily becoming an indelible force in the continued development of contemporary practice in the Caribbean/Global South. May we continue to remember his work through our continued efforts to amplify Diasporic narratives and perspectives.
