Saturday, January 24, 2:00 PM: How to Be: A Panel Discussion with artists Brandan Odums, Lisa Sigal, Nari Ward, Willie Birch, and Imani Jacqueline Brown, moderated by Gia Hamilton.
Auditorium, Administrative Building, Xavier University of Louisiana (7299 Drexel Drive)
This panel explores the responsibility of the artist in regard to their social and political environment and centers around the P.3+ project ExhibitBE, organized by local artist Brandan Odums. ExhibitBE explores the relationship of street artists to a specific site, the abandoned Charles DeGaulle Manor housing complex in Algiers. Free and open to the public. This event is made possible by Xavier University and the Joan Mitchell Center.
Prospect New Orleans is offering bus transportation to visit ExhibitBE before the panel discussion. The cost is $75, and the bus will depart the Hyatt Regency (601 Loyola Avenue) at 10:30 AM and return around 4:30 PM.
