Geoffrey & Carmen: A Memoir in Four Movements (Web Exhibition)

Geoffrey and Carmen Exhibition Website:

This exciting new website was generously funded by the DuSable Museum and the exhibition’s sponsors. The Geoffrey and Carmen Exhibition Website consists of interactive highlights of the lives and careers of Geoffrey Holder and Carmen DeLavallade. Their exhibit includes more than 90 paintings, sculptures, photographs, costumes, books and designs by the Tony Award winning director/choreographer/ artist/actor/author Geoffrey Holder and his award-winning wife, dancer/actress/choreographer Carmen DeLavallade. The website not only brings to life the experiences and achievements of these two African American icons, but it also salutes the historical legacy that they pioneered and gifted to artists across multiple domains.

Organized by The DuSable Museum of African American History.
Curated by Leo Holder.
