Artist’s Perspective: Dawn DeDeaux discusses Tina Freeman: Lamentations

New Orleans Museum of Art
Getting there
1 Collins Diboll Circle, New Orleans, LA

Throughout the exhibition of photographs in Tina Freeman: Lamentations, a seven-year photo-documentation of Louisiana’s wetlands and the glacial landscapes of the Arctic and Antarctic by Tina Freeman, fellow artists, including Dawn DeDeaux, will offer their perspective on the subject matter. Louisiana residents receive free admission to NOMA on Wednesdays courtesy of The Helis Foundation. ABOUT DAWN DEDEAUX New Orleans-based artist Dawn DeDeaux has merged art with new technologies for decades to broaden art and audience engagement. Early works from the 1970s such as CB Radio Booths were works of mobility that travelled the communication systems and streets of underserved communities.  Mid-career works were large-scale installations and pioneering immersive, synchronized media environments including Soul Shadows, Women Eating, and The Face of God that premiered at the 1996 Olympics.  Latter works, including Project Mutants, The Goddess Fortuna and The MotherShip Series, are inspired by environmental challenges. DeDeaux will be the subject of a retrospective exhibition at NOMA in 2020.
