Published on the occasion of the Haitian-born, Philadelphia-based artistís largest solo museum exhibition to date, Didier William: Nou Kite Tout Sa DŤyŤ presents an expansive view of Williamís (born 1983) career through the lens of race, immigration, and personal and collective memory. Featuring more than 40 full-color images of Williamís monumental paintings, lush printmaking practice and a large-scale sculpture commissioned for the exhibition, the book (whose title translates as "weíve left that all behind"óan oft-cited phrase by Haitian immigrants to the US) blends a recontextualization of the art historical canon with an incisive look at Miami, where William was raised. With work spanning decades, this catalog builds on the foundation already built for this engaging emerging artist.
