Abstract:

Curator Nicole Smith was born in the Republic of Haiti. She worked as a curator at the Centre d’art in Port-au Prince, Haiti before moving to the United States in 1973. She sold Haitian work from her home and automobile, opening the Nicole Gallery in 1986. The gallery came to represent one of the finest collections of world renowned Haitian, African and African American artists and maintained one of the most comprehensive collections of Shona stone sculpture in the United States. Smith fostered the careers of many artists including Allen Stringfellow, George Carter and Fritz Millevoix. In 2005, she curated an exhibit of Fritz Millevoix paintings at the Daley Civic Center in Chicago. In 2010, after the earthquake in Haiti, Smith organized a fundraiser to benefit displaced artists who were affiliated with the Centre d’Art and to rebuild the center itself. Smith was named a Chicago Defender Woman of Excellence in 2010. Smith passed away on March 29, 2016, at age 75.
