NOMA Book Club Curatorial Program

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

Join fellow book lovers as we read and discuss fiction and nonfiction books related to art, artists, art museums, NOMA’s collections and exhibitions. Our full 2019 schedule and reading list has been announced. Organized by NOMA’s Felix J. Dreyfous Library, the Book Club is an informal group. You do not have to attend every meeting and we understand if you have to leave a discussion or program early. The book club offers several types of programs: a book discussion group that meets once a month (no reading in December), curatorial programs, field trips, and Meet the Author receptions. Most book club programs start promptly at noon, but please arrive at 11:30 a.m. if you wish to bring a sack lunch or meet beforehand. NOMA will provide water and soft drinks. RSVP for the meetings you wish to attend so we can prepare the meeting space. Please contact Sheila A. Cork at 504.658.4117 or for information about joining the NOMA Book Club. March 2019 Selection Keith Sonnier Until Today by Jeffrey Grove and Terrie Sultan Prestel, 2018, ISBN: 978-3791357324 One of the first artists to use light, specifically neon, as a form of sculpture, Keith Sonnier changed our ideas of what sculpture is and could be. From his early pieces, such as Rat Tail Exercise and the Ba-O-Ba series, to his most recent luminous neon-based series, this book explores the progression and influence of Sonnier’s oeuvre. This beautiful monograph celebrates an artist who has never ceased experimenting—and never stopped astonishing his audience. NOMA will host a Sonnier retrospective from March 15 – June 2, 2019. —Google Books Friday, March 15, 12 – 1 p.m. | Curatorial Program with Katie Pfohl, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Tuesday, March 26, 12 – 1 p.m. | Book Discussion Group
