The CAC is supported in part by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council. Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works. The CAC is supported in part by a Community Arts Grant made possible by the City of New Orleans as administered by the Arts Council New Orleans.
The Helis Foundation is a Louisiana private foundation, established and funded by the William Helis Family. The Arts Funds of The Helis Foundation advance access to the arts for the community through contributions that sustain operations for, provide free admission to, acquire works of art, and underwrite major exhibitions and projects of institutions within the Greater New Orleans area.

Organized by Teens@CAC, Revoir: To See Again presents work that examines the relationship between memory—individual and collective—and identity. 

An exhibition about personal and social histories and the ways they inform contemporary self-presentation, Revoir: To See Again asks Who am I? as a response to Where did I come from?. While some works specifically engage broad social questions about race, gender, class, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, others mine personal traditions and customs of food, language, shared geography, and social ritual.  Collectively, these works present art as a tool for understanding, healing, and liberation.

This exhibition is curated by and comprised of work by New Orleans teen artists. This is our effort to bring into public view the memories and imagination of our generation of artists and peers who currently negotiate the competing demand to individuate and to belong to the community of New Orleans.
