JANUARY 11 - A Discussion with P.3+BR's Curators, Raina Wirta and Rodneyna Hart
Baton Rouge Gallery's Sundays@4 series welcomes the curators for P.3+BR, Raina Wirta and Rodneyna Hart, for an in-depth discussion of the capital region's extension of the contemporary biennial Prospect.3 New Orleans.
As always, Sundays@4 presentations are free and open to the public and begin at 4 p.m.
Wirta and Hart will shed light on the behind-the-scenes work that went into the entire P.3+BR experience and the selection of the works that are included in P.3+BR's marquee exhibition, which can be viewed on the fourth floor of the Chase building in downtown Baton Rouge through January 25. Other topics of discussion will be the current state of contemporary art in Baton Rouge and where they see it headed in the near future.
OTHER UPCOMING SUNDAYS@4 PRESENTATIONS:
February 22: Poets Vincent Cellucci & Christopher Shipman read from A Ship on the Line, a book of battleship verse-charges to determine the depth of technology’s effects on the personal and the poetic. The pair hold the line of the poem and dare updating naval warfare's final goal to syncing.
March 29: Author Barbara Sims discusses her book, The Next Elvis: Searching for Stardom at Sun Records, just two days removed from what would have been the iconic record label's 63rd birthday. Her presentation will focus on her own role with the company, the struggles she faced in the male-dominated workforce of the day, as well as the stories behind Sun's founder Sam Phillips and his work with icons such as B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Little Junior Parker and more.
