Press Release

In 2015, Level Artist Collective was formed by Ana Hernandez, Horton Humble, Rontherin Ratliff, John Isiah Walton and Carl Joe Williams. As five artists of color with deep ties to the city of New Orleans, Level Artist Collective developed with the intent of creating a platform to promote, support and sustain their cooperative voice and vision. Together, their concerted impact on the visual landscape of the American South and beyond is stronger because of their unique yet complementary force. This exhibition, primarily comprised of new work, presents a distinctly New Orleans narrative to the larger contemporary art dialogue through fiercely independent studio practices. 

Artists in Level Artist Collective include:
Ana Hernandez
Horton Humble
Rontherin Ratliff
John Isiah Walton
Carl Joe Williams
