Newcomb Art Museum presents Uncommon Exchanges, a unique dialogue between unlikely pairings of Tulane and Gulf South experts, in partnership with A Studio in the Woods, The ByWater Institute at Tulane University, and New Orleans Center for the Gulf South (Nola Gulf South). For this special program marking Juneteenth, artist Bmike will be in dialogue with Dr. Rosanne Adderley, Associate Professor of African Diaspora History at Tulane University. Assistant Director of the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South Dr. Denise Frazier will moderate.

Usually we chapter the history of New Orleans by eras of governance, or by traumas such as wars and disasters. We may also interpret local history—or more accurately, historical geography—by how New Orleanians have interacted with the meager but highly valuable topographic elevation of this deltaic plain—its role in selecting this site for the city, where we did and did not urbanize, how we reworked soils and hydrology, at what consequence for urban development, and at what risk for human safety.

This October, the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South, in partnership with Pelican Bomb, will host the 10th annual Association for the Study of the Arts of the Present (ASAP/10). This “unconventional and expansive” conference brings together over 400 scholars and artists to address contemporary arts since the 1960s in its various forms—literary, visual, performing, musical, cinematic, design, and digital.
