Morbid Anatomy Cabinet Exhibition and Opening, May 9th, Barrister's Gallery, New Orleans
I would like to cordially invite all MA readers to "The Morbid Anatomy Cabinet or Gallery as Wunderkammer" exhibition, which opens with a reception next Saturday night, May 9th, at Barrister's Gallery in New Orleans. The show will feature photographs from my ongoing series documenting extraordinary privately-held collections; these photos will be situated within an extraordinary collection of its own--a cabinet-style installation of artworks curated along the Morbid Anatomy theme, featuring the work of many artists you've read about on this blog. The opening party is sure to be a good time, and will run from 6-9 PM. Hope you can make it! Click on invitation above to view at full size and find out more details and many of the artists who will be participating. More, I am told, to come.
Also, special thanks to Naoe Suzuki for allowing me to use her lovely “Skeleton drawing of Ritta-Christina”--which will be featured in the exhibition--for the invitation, and also to all of the other artists who sent in their work and private collectors who opened their homes and offices to me.
