Press Release

Sarah Morris: Sawdust and Tinsel is an exhibition of the artist’s painting and film, examining the tensions and mythologies of contemporary urban centers. Since the mid-1990s, Morris has developed a vocabulary of abstraction to investigate what she describes as “urban, social, and bureaucratic typologies.” Positioning itself as an urban outlier, New Orleans has insisted throughout its history on a brand of cultural and social independence from conventional urban archetypes.
