NO DEAD ARTISTS - Main Gallery Installation View
Jonathan Ferrara Gallery is pleased to announce the 18th edition of the annual NO DEAD ARTISTS International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art. The exhibition will run from 27 August through 27 September with an opening reception on Saturday, 30 August, from 6-9 pm.
The NO DEAD ARTISTS exhibition was founded in 1995 to give a voice to emerging artists. The exhibition’s name is derived from the old adage that artists never achieve success until they are dead. NO DEAD ARTISTS turns that notion on its head and gives emerging artists their first break in the art world. In the 90’s, the exhibition was open only to New Orleans artists and subsequently grew to include artists of Louisiana. In 2010, the exhibition expanded to become a national juried exhibition open to artists from the entire US, and now in 2014 the call is international.
