Galerie Lakaye opened in 1990 and quickly became the premiere gallery of contemporary Haitian, Caribbean and ethnic fine art on the west coast. Operating out of a private Craftsman house in Hollywood, California, the gallery’s unique blend of emerging and museum-stature artists has led to alliances with venerable institutions, including Fowler Museum at UCLA and the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. The gallery has been featured in Los Angeles Times, Vanity Fair, Bon Appetit, In Style magazines and more.
Galerie Lakaye also hosts regular artist salons in an effort to support and promote the arts and the artist community at the root level.
Carine Fabius, a Haitian native, is director of Galerie Lakaye. She is also a freelance curator of museum exhibitions featuring painting, sculpture, photography, video and multimedia installations. Carine is the published author of five books, and she is a regular blogger on Huffington Post on issues relating to arts, culture and lifestyle.
