SYLVIE FORTIN IN RESIDENCE AT PARSE THIS FALL
Curator and critic Sylvie Fortin will be in residence at PARSE November 6 – December 15, 2017. During her residency in New Orleans, Fortin will continue her current curatorial research project into the contemporary currency of hospitality. The project seeks to open up a space to think through some crucial artistic, social, and political questions that have so far been foreclosed by both aesthetic theory and the narratives developed to understand and discuss political events. She will speak on the subject at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge on November 8th at 5pm. Fortin also plans to meet with many local artists, writers, and thinkers during her stay in the city.
CASEY RUBLE’S FORTHCOMING DOCUMENTARY
Artist Casey Ruble spent her summer at PARSE doing research, conducting interviews, and learning about an incredible woman named Eulalie Mandeville. Ruble’s forthcoming experimental documentary, Eulalie, is a meditation on family, race, and a young nation’s struggle to define itself. The film will look at the life of Eulalie Mandeville de Marigny, an Afro-Creole woman, who was born in the 1770s to an enslaved mother and the largest white Creole landowner in Louisiana and who went on to become a successful entrepreneur and one of the wealthiest black women in New Orleans. She once owned the property where PARSE is located.
