New Orleans-based artist Dan Tague, well known for his political folded dollar bill photographs, brings Pulp Fictions to the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC), New Orleans.
Pulp Fictions features new works by a group of artists, long-identified with New Orleans, who work with paper in their studio practice. In collaboration with Dieu Donné Papermill—a New York City-based nonprofit dedicated to the creation, promotion, and preservation of new contemporary art utilizing the hand papermaking process—Tague and the six artists he selected for this project manipulated handmade sheets of paper from pulp to create the works on view.
Having debuted early this year at the Dieu Donné Gallery, New York, Pulp Fiction returns home to New Orleans, featuring artists Hannah Chalew (Detroit), Teresa Cole (New Orleans), Margaret Evangeline (New York), Jeffrey Forsythe (Chicago), Daphne Loney (New Orleans), Christopher Saucedo (Brooklyn), and Dan Tague (New Orleans).
Join us for the exhibition opening reception April 16, 2015, from 6–8pm.
