Our new exhibition exploring wellness and care opens Friday, March 10, at Pelican Bomb Gallery X.
On Friday, March 10, join Pelican Bomb to celebrate the opening of “Mutual Support,” our new exhibition highlighting artists whose practices engage issues of mental health, wellness, care, and collectivity. The exhibition premieres Saul Robbins’ photographs of diverse sites of both clinical and spiritual healing throughout New Orleans alongside a free, pop-up wellness center, open to the public each Saturday. We’re also presenting a new series of drawings by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh exploring the ways illness has impacted her relationship with her mother; a quilt by Rachel Wallis collectively sewn in honor of people killed by the Chicago Police Department or while in police custody; and director Evan Falbaum’s film documenting Nick Cave’s eight-month collaborative project with residents in Shreveport, Louisiana. Though distinct in their approaches, each of these projects affirms the important role art can play in the creation and support of healthier, more caring communities.
In conjunction with “Mutual Support,” we’ll be publishing a thematic series of reviews, essays, interviews, and digital artist projects on the Art Review to expand the conversation. Please email Charlie Tatum at firstname.lastname@example.org with all questions and press inquiries.
