Juried exhibition opens on White Linen Night in New Orleans
NEW ORLEANS — The Ogden Museum of Southern Art announces its fourth annual Louisiana Contemporary juried exhibition. The exhibition dates are Aug. 1- Sept. 20. The opening reception will be held at the Ogden Museum during Whitney White Linen Night from 6-9 p.m. Aug. 1.
The juried exhibition organized by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Established in 2012, this annual event promotes contemporary art practices in the state of Louisiana, provides exhibition space for the exposition of living artists’ 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.
Submissions will be accepted April 15 through June 17.
The exhibition is open to all artists 18 years and older residing in Louisiana. All work must be original and completed within the last two years. Work previously exhibited in Louisiana Contemporary should not be resubmitted.
This year’s juror will be Brooke Davis Anderson, executive director of Prospect New Orleans. Before coming to Prospect, Anderson held the position of deputy director of Curatorial Planning at LACMA in Los Angeles; director and curator at The Contemporary Center and the Henry Darger Study Center at the American Folk Art Museum in New York; director of the Diggs Gallery and Assistant Professor of Fine Arts, at Winston-Salem State University, in North Carolina; adjunct instructor at Columbia University, New York and City College of New York, New York; among others.
“I am so thrilled to be invited to jury the Louisiana Contemporary at the Ogden,” she said. The Ogden and Prospect New Orleans have a terrific partnership, solidified during P.3, and it will be a privilege to work with the museum team again.”
