I am very happy to be included in the Exhibition « Constructing the Break », curated by Allison M. Glenn, at the Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans from August 4 to October 6, 2018. I will present prints made with conductive ink, a series entitled « Deep ».
« The Mississippi River makes meaning of the landscape as it careens through the United States, flowing South from Minnesota through the Midwest, caressing the edges and embankments of Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee, and Arkansas, until finally pouring down through Louisiana to empty into the Gulf of Mexico. The landscape is similarly marked by the bodies who move through it, by the passing of time, and by the social politics that inform migration, homesteading, and documenting cartographies.
With these considerations, this exhibition looks to the intersection of the body with the landscape—from the gentle overlap of conceptual practices and the physicality of environments to spatial politics that are deeply embedded within the social fabric of this country. This exhibition considers artistic practices that engage with the shape-shifting that is at the core of New Orleans, where the concept of being rooted is consistently tempered by infrastructural fragility. »
This exhibition is organized by the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans, and curated by Allison M. Glenn. Support for this exhibition is provided by the Azby Fund, Sydney & Walda Besthoff, The Helis Foundation, the Welch Family Foundation and the Visual Arts Exhibition Fund.
