28 Days, 28 Exhibits at Magazine Street Gallery


by Brad Rhines

A series of one-night stands on Magazine Street this month gives Uptown residents something to talk about, as the new Salon Gallery brings a bohemian touch to the bars-and-boutiques corridor. The One Series, a contemporary art exhibition that showcases “one work from one artist for one day is the kind of innovative, intriguing premise that seems more at home on St. Claude than on Magazine, but curators Kathy Rodriguez, Emily Farranto, and Natalie Sciortino-Rinehart hope to move the contemporary art conversation Uptown, at least for a few weeks.

 

Starting on June 1, the gallery will host 28 exhibitions in 28 days and hold a nightly opening reception that’s not the usual wine-and-cheese affair. Artists participating in The One Series will be bringing or sending work from all over the world, including cities like New York, Toronto, and Berlin. Many of these artists have never shown their work in New Orleans, and those that have shown in the city haven’t done so in years.

 

Every evening from 6:00 to 8:00, the gallery will host a gathering intended to elicit critical conversation and meaningful dialogue about the work. The co-curators ask that gallery-goers stay for as much of the two hour reception as they can and share their thoughts with other participants. Guests are invited to bring drinks or other contributions to the evening receptions.

 

“We're trying to evolve multiple perspectives on this ‘new-to-NOLA’ work, and I certainly feel the more, the merrier,” Rodriguez told NoDef, “but with the focus on the discussion rather than the socializing—though socializing is indeed part of it too.”

 

Scroll down for the full schedule of artists, and check out the Salon Gallery - which is located at 4432 Magazine St. - on Facebook for more information.
