CREOLE WORLD

Jun 10, 2016 — Aug 20, 2016

 

New Orleans is known for its distinctive Creole heritage—evident in its food, architecture, and people—but it is part of an entire family of Latin Caribbean cities that forged new identities from their colonial histories. This exhibition will explore these connections, featuring the work of renowned photographer Richard Sexton. Over the course of 38 years (1975-2013), Sexton traveled across Latin America—from Haiti, Columbia, Argentina, Cuba and Ecuador back home to New Orleans—capturing the architectural and urban similarities among these culturally rich locales. The exhibition contains more than 50 vibrant images from the permanent holdings of The Historic New Orleans Collection.
