Geir Haraldseth, Director of Rogaland Kunstsenter in Stavanger, Norway is visiting PARSE through our guest curator program. He will be in New Orleans October 12 – November 1 and will talk about some of his recent curatorial projects at Loyola University on October 21 at 6:30pm in Miller Auditorium (Room #114 on Loyola Street). His time in New Orleans will be spent conducting studio visits and doing research...and of course, falling in love with our fabulous city!
We are also excited to announce a new initiative that will operate in tandem with PARSE called niños malos on the third floor of our space at 134 Carondelet Street. niños malos supports experimental sound, music, theater, dance, performance, video, film, and fashion. Veronica Hunsinger-Loe and Nat Kusinitz of Skin Horse Theater will present an experiential work in late November/early December (exact dates to be announced) that uses PARSE and the surrounding area to investigate the possibility of applying the Dadaist "readymade" format to theater.


Prior to his appointment as Director of Rogaland Kunstsenter, Haraldseth earned a B.A. in Fine Arts from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design and an M.A. in Curatorial Studies from Bard College. Previous positions include curator at the National Museum of Art, Design and Architecture, Oslo, and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo. Haraldseth has contributed to several journals and magazines including the Exhibitionist, Kunstkritikk, Acne Paper, and Landings Journal. He recently published Great! I’ve written something stupid featuring a selection of his curated projects and writings, published by Torpedo Press.

Geir Haraldseth’s visit to New Orleans is supported by a grant from the RosaMary Foundation. His lecture is supported in part by Loyola University New Orleans.


Veronica Hunsinger-Loe and Nat Kusinitz are a theater making duo from New Orleans, know for their visceral and inventive work with Skin Horse Theater. Their recent collaborations with Skin Horse include a surreal production of Macbeth, and Nocturnes (I-III), an epic exploration of the cosmos. Other productions include the horror play SARAH, the children’s show The Hunting of the Snark, and the immersive dance piece Port/Architect. Readymade #1 (Dominos) is among a series of radically meditative works they are currently conceiving in the woods of the Hudson Valley in New York. This will be their first piece presented in a gallery setting.

PARSE is an art space and curatorial residency in New Orleans’ Central Business District that serves as a platform for critical dialog about contemporary art. This program hosts three to four visiting curators annually. During extended stays in the city, curators are encouraged to engage in studio visits with local artists, conduct research in the area, and utilize the PARSE facilities to experiment with the boundaries and possibilities of curatorial practice.
