Established in 2012, this statewide, juried exhibition promotes contemporary art practices in the state of Louisiana, provides exhibition space for the exposition of living artist’s work, and engages a contemporary audience that recognizes the vibrant visual culture of Louisiana and the role of New Orleans as a rising, international art center.
The Colourful South explores the role color photography has played in the history of Southern photography and beyond.
Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp evokes New Orleans’s natural environment—surrounded by bayous, lakes and wetlands near the mouth of the Mississippi River. It also alludes to the city’s unique cultural landscape as a creative force; the politically engaged jazz saxophonist Archie Shepp described jazz itself as a triumph of the human spirit, a lily that grows “in spite of the swamp.”
CURRENTS is an annual exhibition which was initiated to highlight the contemporary photographic work created by NOPA members. The show will include work by as many as fifteen artists, featuring several images by each selected photographer.
