PARSE and Antenna are co-hosting a curatorial lecture by Joey Orr, September 16, 2016, 7 - 9pm at Antenna. Dinner and
drinks will be provided by 1000 Figs. Please RSVP (info@parsenola.org) as limited space is available.

Joey Orr's work in the collective, John Q, straddles the line between artistic and research practices. His current curatorial projects at the MCA Chicago pull together works by artists Camille Henrot, Diana Thater, and Andrew Yang to reflect on the overlap of research and artistic production. He is also conducting research for a journal article on artist Dread Scott’s Slave Rebellion Reenactment, which is scheduled to take place in New Orleans in 2017. 

Although each of these projects share the general subject of art and research, they variously conjure the roles of artist, curator, and critic. These distinct activities make different claims when shored up into their discrete disciplines than when used more fluidly as hybrid and expanded practices. The question of method is similar to formal considerations artists’ make in their creative practices and, in fact, formal considerations may be a contribution art can make to research practices.

Joey Orr is a curator and artist whose work explores social practice, art, and research. He is a founding member of the idea collective, John Q. He currently serves as the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. In 2017, he begins his new post as the Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Curator of Research at the Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas.

PARSE is also partnering with Antenna to host curator Danny Orendorff in 2017. Orendorff will curate a group exhibition at PARSE selected from the 2017 Antenna Louisiana Open Call and a solo show at Antenna. Submissions will be accepted until September 15. This opportunity is for artists living and working in Louisiana. Individual visual artists or collaboratives working in any media are encouraged to apply. 

Danny Orendorff is a curator, writer, teacher, and activist whose work explores the intersections of DIY and craft-oriented cultural production, histories of grassroots social-justice activism, and theories of gender and sexuality. Currently, he is a lecturer within the Fiber & Material Studies Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Program Manager for The Propeller Fund.

PARSE is attending the Common Field Convening, October 20 - 23, 2016 in Miami, FL!

PARSE NOLA (d.b.a PARSE) is a nonprofit art space and curatorial residency 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.
