This week's pick is “Ten Years Gone” at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
Commemorating the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans Museum of Art presents “Ten Years Gone,” featuring six contemporary artists who explore memory, loss, and the passage of time.
The exhibition seeks to situate the significance of the past decade within a larger context of human endeavor and life experience through the work of Willie Birch, Dawn DeDeaux, Isabelle Hayeur, Spring Hurlbut, Nicholas Nixon, and Christopher Saucedo. Eschewing images of destruction or ruin that so often follow in the wake of tragedy, the exhibition focuses instead on more profound and metaphoric ways of memorializing tragedy and thinking about community recoveries and personal transformations.
