Sharing our stories. Each week, Pelican Bomb publishes exhibition reviews, features, interviews, and more, engaging with artists, ideas, and artworks in our city. And in conjunction with our own exhibitions and public projects, our in-depth thematic series explore different topics through a range of critical perspectives.
Pelican Bomb is New Orleans’ home for critical writing and thinking about art. We connect New Orleans to global conversations in contemporary art through publishing and public projects. We bring together diverse voices to shape and reflect on art and visual culture.
Finding new connections. Offering face-to-face opportunities for dialogue, learning, and engagement. Pelican Bomb’s creative thematic exhibitions and large-scale public projects feature international artists while exploring the intersection of New Orleans’ social histories and contemporary art.
With a diversity of voices, high standards for content, and a willingness to experiment, we think you’ll find our perspective unique, intelligent, inspiring, and sometimes challenging, but never boring.
