Opening Night and Gallery Talk: “Passage” by Regina Agu
November 22, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us at New Orleans Museum of Art to celebrate the public opening of Regina Agu’s installation “Passsage.” At 7:30 PM, the artist will give a Gallery Talk in the Great Hall.
“Passage” is an immersive, site-specific installation created for the New Orleans Museum of Art by contemporary artist Regina Agu and marks her first solo museum show. Inspired by the historical form of the panorama, Agu’s 100-foot-long installation weaves together imagery of waterways from across Louisiana to consider how the landscapes, people, and histories of the region are connected by and through water. Agu’s project mines histories of landscape painting to explore the unique social and political geographies of the Gulf Coast. This installation was created in partnership with A Studio in the Woods, through an artist residency.
