FACE TO FACE: A Survey of Contemporary Portraiture by Louisiana Artists
Curated by Jane Hart
 
Face to Face features work by twelve nationally and internationally acclaimed artists working in a variety of media. It includes Willie Birch, Douglas Bourgeois, George Dureau, Elizabeth Kleinveld & Epaul Julien, Aubrey Edwards, Deborah Luster, Rashaad Newsome, Tameka Norris, Gina Phillips, Jennifer Shaw, Jonathan Traviesa, and Heather Weathers. This exhibition of visually powerful and evocative work is accompanied by an essay in which Miami-based independent curator Jane Hart states, “During this present moment, we are increasingly witness to social unrest and an escalating violent state of affairs, both at home and abroad. These disturbing conflicts often can be attributed to a lack of understanding amongst us based upon ethnicity, race, religion and other differences. Through depictions of people created by artists, seeing our shared humanity, we can collectively come together with a greater tolerance and acceptance.”
