New Orleans Latinx Exchange

Artist: New Orleans Latinx Exchange
New Orleans, LA

The purpose of NLE is to create immersive installations and performances that advance the dialogue between the visual cultures of New Orleans and Latin America. For its initial iteration, the project will feature visiting artists Assume Vivid Astro Focus (Brazil) and Poncili Creacion (Puerto Rico), who will collaborate with local artists to build site-specific work featuring performance and community programming.

This project will create connections surrounding the regions’ shared approach to community, improvisation, and resilience. Additionally, this Latinx focus will engage viewers with a perspective underrepresented in the local art community.

Award Amount: $1500 Research & Development
