Southern Imagists: Selections from the Permanent Collection of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art
UNITED STATES
NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA  •  The Ogden Museum of Southern Art / University of New Orleans  •  3 August - 22 September 2013
 
 
In the late 1960s, a group of artists emerged from the Chicago art scene that eschewed the dominant trends in American art of abstraction and minimalism, opting instead to focus on the image and landscape. Using a bold palette and drawing inspiration from surrealism, pop culture and personal experience, these artists used image as metaphor in an expressionist style. The fantastical imagery, bold palette and strong narrative element of the Chicago Imagists created a style that was easily adapted by artists throughout the country, but perhaps no region as naturally and enthusiastically as the American South, especially in New Orleans. This exhibition includes works by artists ranging from Roger Brown (an Alabama-born original member of the Chicago Imagists) to Amita Bhatt (a contemporary Indian artist living and working in Houston, Texas). Also included are Robert Gordy, Douglas Bourgeois, Robert Warrens, Charles Blank, Justin Forbes, Frederich Trenchard and other artists whose work is included in the permanent collection of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
