5th ANNUAL SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA JURIED STUDENT EXHIBITION

Juried by Amanda Sanfilippo

The Engine Room 

2809 N. Robertson Street

April 19 - June 3, 2018

Opening reception: April 19, 6-9pm

 

facts! features new work from 22 artists and a collaborative from 8 colleges and universities in Southeast Louisiana. The works in the exhibition, while united through location and generation, are not tied to a curatorial imperative. Rather, works in the exhibition communicate through a complex set of aesthetic and conceptual decisions, a series of perceived truths–facts that use convincing presentation tactics to create narratives. Whether real or fake, these stories and strategies share objective realities about the world we live in.

The typeface for the exhibition title was designed by Kayla Pfister.
