CAC ANNOUNCES RESIGNATION OF PERFORMING ARTS CURATOR
The Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (CAC) regretfully announces the resignation of Raelle Myrick-Hodges from the position of Curator of Performing Arts at the CAC. Myrick-Hodges, who has relocated to New York City, will continue to work for the CAC as a Curatorial Advisor until her replacement is hired.
“On behalf of the CAC, our trustees, and our staff, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Myrick-Hodges for the two virtually sold out Performing Arts Seasons that have taken place over the course of her tenure with us. We know this accomplishment speaks directly to the quality of her work here in New Orleans, and we wish her the best as she embarks on what I know will be a career that continues to be filled with exemplary accomplishments.”
—Neil A. Barclay
CAC Director and CEO
As the CAC’s Curatorial Advisor, Myrick-Hodges will continue work with Director and CEO, Neil A. Barclay, and The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts, Andrea Andersson, as well as with the CAC’s Performing Arts team, to complete curatorial planning for her third Season of performing arts presentations (2016–17) at the CAC. A national search will be announced in the Spring of 2016 at cacno.org.
