“A BUILDING WITH A VIEW”: EXPERIMENTS IN ANARCHITECTURE August 6–October 1, 2016 The CAC’s 40th Anniversary Season kicks off with the expansive exhibition, “A BUILDING WITH A VIEW”: EXPERIMENTS IN ANARCHITECTURE, a presentation of diverse works by more than 40 local and regional artists. “Anarchitecture,” an elision of the words anarchy and architecture, celebrates the reinvention and retooling of historic forms and structures.
A BUILDING WITH A VIEW EXPERIMENTS IN ANARCHITECTURE
Examining the relationships between social and spatial conditions, “A BUILDING WITH A VIEW” showcases the current works of some of the CAC’s founding artists alongside those of emerging contemporary artists. Sited for our historic Katz & Besthoff building, the works in this exhibition demonstrate creative reuse and the power of space to articulate an image of the future—in this case, the future of the CAC as it embarks on its next 40 years.
Support for this exhibition is provided by the Welch Family Fund in memory of Walter Wade Welch, and by the Sydney & Walda Besthoff Foundation.
The CAC is supported in part by a Community Arts Grant made possible by the City of New Orleans as administered by the Arts Council New Orleans.
