FEBRUARY 8: THE TERRITORY AHEAD OPENS AT GOOD CHILDREN GALLERY

Opening reception Friday, February 8th 6-10pm. Exhibition will be on show through March 3rd, weekends 12-5pm and by appointment. 4037 St. Claude Ave. Gallery info here.

“Embedded in the southern landscape are complicated narratives and dark histories, interwoven and overlapping in their themes. God’s Country: The Territory Ahead examines how landscape has the power to define identity, and how identity of place is often tied to the land itself. Over the course of five years, Southerly Gold ventured across the state of Louisiana creating a record of place, of stories stumbled upon, and a documentation of relics accessible to any wandering traveler or curious eye. The Territory Ahead is an ode to this region: to the industry and resources that are beholden to the land; to the people and places that have suffered and sacrificed in the name of prosperity; to the complex identity of place that arises in the intermingling of potential versus reality.”
