15 Aug Facing Up to Tough Issues in Louisiana Contemporary Annual Group Show

‘In the art world, summer group shows are usually the visual equivalent of a bottle of rosé: easy to enjoy but not very demanding. But this year’s installment of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s annual Louisiana Contemporary exhibition is not that kind of group show.

‘Now in its sixth year, the group exhibition has become a sort of snapshot of the currents of the regional contemporary art scene, as well as a distillation of the particular curatorial interests of its annual guest juror. This year, the show was juried by independent curator Shantrelle P. Lewis, who in her opening statement for the exhibition discusses how her experience as a native New Orleanian was central to her curatorial process.’

‘Others, like Abigail Smithson’s “Record of Hope & Loss” — made of discarded pieces of old basketball nets — address those experiences in more subtle and abstract ways, while James Flynn’s “Portable Monument to Harriet Tubman” and Kristin Meyers’s “Bone Shepard” use traditional forms to evoke the presence of ancestors.’
