The New Orleans Film Society presents Robert Adanto’s documentary about the vibrancy of the local art community after Hurricane Katrina.
The Ogden Museum of Southern Art hosts a screening—organized with the New Orleans Film Society—of Robert Adanto’s City of Memory (2013), a documentary film about the changes in the city’s contemporary art community since Hurricane Katrina. Adanto spent three years researching and interviewing artists working in New Orleans and examining the myriad ways in which they have responded to the physical, social, and cultural effects of the storm on the city.
Featured artists include Keith Calhoun, Hannah Chalew, Dawn Dedeaux, Jan Gilbert, Deborah Luster, Tameka Norris, Gina Phillips, Jennifer Shaw, and David Spielman, among others.
The screening will take place in the Patrick F. Taylor Library at the Ogden Museum. Tickets are $12.50 for the general public, and entrance is free for members of the Ogden Museum and the New Orleans Film Society. Click here to watch a trailer for City of Memory.
