Title: rt Spill: Disaster Art, Activism and Recovery in Post-Katrina New Orleans
When: Saturday, November 13, 2010 - 12:00 P
Description: Art Spill: Disaster Art, Activism and Recovery in Post-Katrina New Orleans - This year in New Orleans, in conjunction with the American Anthropological Association’s (AAA) 109th Annual Meeting, an eclectic array of artists, scholars, local organizations, and activists are collaborating to produce a constellation of interrelated exhibitions and panels. One of these events, happening in association with Ethnographic Terminalia and in collaboration with Multispecies Salon III: SWARM and the St. Claude Arts... Biennial, is called Art Spill: Disaster, Art, Activism, and Recovery in Post-Katrina New Orleans. Art Spill is a multidisciplinary event that will explore how art objects have exposed disaster, facilitated recovery, and participated in political activities in post-Katrina New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.

Art Spill consists of an exhibition, which will run from November 13-20 in the St. Claude Arts District; an AAA-sponsored, offsite panel consisting of scholars and artists whose work is relevant to social and ecological issues in the Gulf Coast region; and a juried art show and NOLA-style party to be held on November 20, the proceeds of which will be donated to the non-profit watchdog groups Defenders of the Coast and NOLA Emergency Response. More information will be available soon.
Location: St. Claude Arts District
