What began as an outpost for IBM’s Research and Development and the birthplace of the first IBM personal computer is now a state-of-the-art, accessible 1.7 million square foot office park that is a magnet for forward thinkers. Designed by iconic Brutalist architect Marcel Breuer, Boca Raton Innovation Campus (BRiC) is the largest single facility office building in Florida and has been repositioned as a community destination in the heart of Boca Raton. The campus was acquired by CP Group, formerly Crocker Partners, in 2018 with the vision of transforming BRiC into the technology and life sciences hub for the Southeastern United States with unparalleled amenities. BRiC’s partnership with the Boca Raton Museum of Art is part of BRiC’s long-term vision of creating a walking art museum with exhibits throughout the miles of corridors that make up the campus in an effort to integrate art and technology into the ecosystem of the campus.

Edouard Duval Carrié is a contemporary artist and curator based in Miami, Florida. Born and raised in Haiti, Duval Carrié ﬂed the regime of “Papa Doc” Duvalier as a teen ager and subsequently resided in locales as diverse as Puerto Rico, New York, Montreal, Paris and Miami. Parallels thus emerge between the artist’s cosmopolitan lifestyle and his artistic sensitivity toward the multifaceted identities that form his native Haiti. At heart, Duval Carrié is an educator: he challenges the viewer to make meaning of dense iconography derived from Caribbean history, politics, and religion. His works have been exhibited in major museums, art institutions and galleries in Africa, Europe and the Americas. Duval-Carrié creates works that speak to the complexities of the Caribbean and its diaspora.
As a curator, Edouard Duval-Carrié has been a fervent advocate of the Caribbean region. Duval-Carrié started programs to highlight and present contemporary visual production of the region called the Global Caribbean in the Miami area and elsewhere. Initially staged to beneﬁt from the presence of international art fairs in Miami such as Art Basel, Global Carribean focuses the visual production of artists from the Caribbean region and places them in a “commercial” context at these art fairs. Recently the project has garnered and secured the collaboration of major scholars and institutions such as Duke University, New York University, Brown University to name a few and created a forum where artists were involved in a dialogue with scholars such as Dr. Anthony Bogues of Brown University, Dr. Ada Ferrer of NYU and Dr. Laurent Dubois of Duke University. This has created much needed discussions at the academic level to further promote and understand the visual production of the Caribbean. Current curated exhibitions by Duval-Carrié are Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom, co-curated with Ada Ferrer and Laurent Dubois and PÒTOPRENS: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince co-curated with Leah Gordon at Pioneer Works in New York.
