The Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane presents Unfamiliar Again: Contemporary Women Abstractionists. Hailing from across the United States, the artists in this exhibition explore new ways of abstraction based on experimental, process-oriented methods. Intended to defamiliarize common imagery, their works preclude figurative recognition or easy comprehension. Their methods are nuanced, time-intensive, and often drawn from unlikely sources such as “DIY” videos on YouTube, Photoshop errors, digital distortions, smart phone apps, and manipulated or synthetic materials such as scanned iridescent paper or faux-suede finishes. The group exhibition includes work by Brittany Nelson.
