Copy Link
6823 Saint Charles Ave
New Orleans, LA 70118

NY-based artist Andrea Fraser's free performance this Wednesday, January 21 perfectly coincides with the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr, Day. Fraser's "Not just a few of us" is an interpretation of New Orleans' heated city council hearing regarding desegregation in Mardi Gras krewes that took place in 1991. It is within Fraser that opposing views and equal fervor truly shine. Her performance at Tulane's Dixon Hall starts at 6pm and is free to the public. To RSVP, head to their Facebook event page here.

The runaway success of ExhibitBE ultimately culminated in a Martin Luther King, Jr Day bash that was like no other. Its founder, Brandan Odums, leads a panel discussion on the street art extravaganza as well as the medium as a whole as it relates to its social setting and cultural environment. Panelists include Lisa Sigal, Imani Jacqueline Brown, and Nari Ward. Prospect.3 is offering transit to ExhibitBE before the panel discussion, with motorcoaches departing from the Hyatt at 10:30am and returning at 4:30pm. Tickets are, yet again, $75 per person. The panel discussion takes place at Xavier's Auditorium at 2pm on Saturday, January 24.

The Ogden's Prospect.3 closing ends in celebration with a free museum day on Sunday, January 25 from 11am to 4pm. Its Saturday events are even bigger. Kicking things off at 10am is a "Big Class," a workshop that paired young artists with the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat as inspired by New Orleans and the south as a whole. Final student projects on Basquiat's work range from writing to film. At 11am, artists Keith Calhoun and Chandra McCormick will give a gallery talk on their evocative Angola exhibit as well as the prison industrial complex as a whole.The Ogden circles back to Basquiat at noon for The Radiant Child, a documentary about Basquiat's life and meteoric rise in the art world. At 2pm, Ogden chief curator Bradley Sumrall discusses the Prospect.3 exhibit Herbert Singleton: Inside Out/Outside, an exhibition of determination and artistic ambition from one of New Orleans' most fascinating artists. The movie Basquiat will then show at 4pm, acting as a complementary biopic to the earlier movie. At 5:30pm, NOLA MIX's dance party pumps up the jams, ultimately culminating in a performance by the experimental DJ duo of Los Jaichackers at 8pm. Festivities last until 10pm and are free to Ogden Museum members and NOFS Members. Regular admission is just $10 for adults.
