The SLU Contemporary is pleased to announce Outside, In an exhibition featuring a selection of art works made by Faculty in the Visual Art + Design department at Southeastern Louisiana University. Outside, In was curated by Leslie-Claire Spillman, Owner and Director of Spillman-Blackwell Fine Art in New Orleans whose external perspective uncovered many thematic connections coursing throughout the Faculty’s individual practices.
Themes related to local landscape, urbanism, and artistic empathy are prevalent throughout the show. Leslie-Claire Spillman writes: “While seemingly disparate at first glance, the works in this exhibition are constructed out of a desire to formalize the internal, to flush out ideas and give a tangible result to that exploration, bringing to the surface--to the outside, what is within. With artists using so many different approaches to achieve this, my hope is that viewers find inspiration in the limitlessness of the possibilities of this expression.”
