Finding new connections. Pelican Bomb’s creative thematic exhibitions feature international artists while exploring the intersection of New Orleans’ social history and contemporary art.

Pelican Bomb isn’t just online. We’re out in the streets, bringing you exhibitions, panels, lectures, and workshops. Offering face-to-face opportunities for dialogue, learning, and engagement.

We organized our first exhibition in 2013, and, since then, have popped up in underutilized, unoccupied, or otherwise transitional spaces across the city to bring you new and meaningful experiences that connect New Orleans’ culture and social history with global conversations around contemporary art.

In February 2016, we opened Pelican Bomb Gallery X (1612 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard), our physical home for critical inquiry, artistic experimentation, and open dialogue. X functions as an additional public access point to Pelican Bomb’s extensive work with artists, writers, curators, and thinkers in and outside of New Orleans.
