In addition to beignets, jazz and football, New Orleans appears to have a pretty good handle on contemporary art. Concurrently on view with the “Prospect 1.5″ edition of the city’s Biennial of international art, “Elements of Nature” is showcasing selections from the CA-based Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation’s permanent collection at the Contemporary Art Center of New Orleans.
On view through February 27, 2011, the exhibition features works by MMG artists Todd Hebert, Allison Schulnik, Ali Smith and Cindy Wright alongside Ed Ruscha, Robert Rauschenberg, Billy Al Bengston and many others. More information on the show – curated by Billie Milam Weisman – can be found on the exhibition website.
In case you missed Todd Hebert‘s 2009 show with Mark Moore Gallery, you can check out his newest works at Jack Shainman Gallery through April 17, 2010!
“Recent Work,” which opened yesterday (March 18th) features several new paintings and works on paper by Hebert, all of which employ his trademark play on depth perception and dreamy haziness.
For more information on this exhibition, or the artist, you may visit Jack Shainman Gallery’s website.
Todd Hebert ventures into Texas with a solo exhibition of new work at Devin Borden Hiram Butler Gallery – opening on October 3, 2009, 11a – 1p – and is on view through November 5, 2009.
For more information on the show’s details and the gallery, visit DBHB Gallery’s website.
