REVERB: Past, Present, Future explores the evolution of art and artistic practices in New Orleans and its surrounding region over the last decade. Taking the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina as its chronological starting point, it positions the vast social, economic, and political reverberations of this monumental event as a catalyst for change, revitalization, determination, and creative innovation among the region’s artistic community.

REVERB traces the aesthetic fissures and openings that grew out of a physical breach. From large-scale installations, interactive video, and handcrafted textiles to historical reenactment and photorealism, the works in this exhibition convey the generative and revitalizing activity that occurred throughout a decade of tremendous change in New Orleans.

Uncovering work by artists of diverse backgrounds and generations who work across a range of media, REVERB evidences the ever-expanding boundaries of contemporary artistic practice as well as the undeniable relationship, both historical and current, of New Orleans art production to local, national, and global dialogues.
