4 to 8 pm – Celebrate the opening of Newcomb Art Museum’s latest exhibition "N̶O̶T̶ Supposed 2-Be Here" with exhibition-inspired art activities for all-ages happening from 4 to 5 pm, and a free opening reception featuring artist remarks from Brandan Bmike Odums, music by DJ RQ Away, and catering by Chef Ashley Jonique from 5 to 8 pm! - About the exhibition: "N̶O̶T̶ Supposed 2-Be Here" at Newcomb Art Museum is the first solo show in a museum setting by artist Brandan Bmike Odums. The exhibition, which features brand new site-specific installations, as well as past work, is part retrospective and part futurescape. Addressing the question of who or what kind of art belongs in a museum, the show explores four different takes on inclusion and identity drawn across notions of art, race, place, and accessibility. "N̶O̶T̶ Supposed 2-Be Here" is a chance for audiences to envision and engage with the bold histories –and futures– that Odums’ work encapsulates, and explore the alchemy of one of New Orleans’ most prominent contemporary visual artists. - Image by Jeremy Tauriac, courtesy of Studio Be
