Coming in May: Josephine Sacabo
Opening reception: Friday, May 11
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
