Josephine Sacabo: Salutations

On display through June 29.

Organized by and from the collection of the New Orleans Museum of Art, this exhibition is the largest presentation to date of works from Josephine Sacabo’s Salutations series. In Salutations, Josephine Sacabo combines collaged and distorted photographic images with a wet collodion on metal process that dates back to the 19th century to create a world that is barely recognizable as such, hovering like a memory or a dream in the space between the concrete and the ineffable. Sacabo will give a presentation on her photography on display in the exhibition at 6 p.m. during the opening reception.

Josephine Sacabo’s work has long challenged assumptions about the documentary nature of photography. In this new body of work, this challenge takes center stage. It pushes the boundaries of photography in serious, intellectual ways while at the same time providing a powerful emotional experience.”

- Russell Lord, Freeman Family Curator of Photographs

Playing the Staircase

The Hammond Regional Arts Center is pleased to announce the launch of its original listening room series, "Playing the Staircase." This exciting new concept to Hammond, Louisiana will see the Hammond Regional Arts Center transform into an intimate listening room for original, acoustic music designed to expand the Arts Center’s mission into the audio arts.

"Playing the Staircase" will feature local and regional musicians playing on the landing of the HRAC staircase and give audiences an intimate listening room to enjoy original lyrics and music. Each session of “Playing the Staircase” will occur the last Friday of the month with musicians performing from 6-8 p.m. These events are B.Y.O.B. Admission to each listening room is $5, and the entirety of the cover will go to the musicians.
