Pelican Bomb kicks off our new Critic-in-Residence program with a lecture by Noah Simblist.
Created in partnership with BURNAWAY in Atlanta, the Critic-in-Residence program invites three discourse-conscious critics from throughout the country to travel to New Orleans and Atlanta for weeklong stays. Noah Simblist is the first critic to visit New Orleans as part of the dual-city residency program, and he will be giving a lecture at the Contemporary Arts Center on Monday, December 15.
Simblist is a critic, curator, artist, and Associate Professor and Chair of the Division of Art at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. He has focused extensively on the art and politics in Israel-Palestine. Parallel to his writing practice, Simblist has organized and participated in a range of panels, roundtables, and seminars on such topics as race and sexuality in the work of Glenn Ligon, labor and class in the arts, and the relationship between artist collectives and the drive to collect objects.
This event is free and open to the public.
