“While everyone is trying to get the perfect picture, Lee Friedlander’s approach seems to declare that photographs should be about how the world exists, not how we want it to be.” — Russell Lord, Freeman Family Curator of Photographs⠀

Lee Friedlander in Louisiana opens at @noma1910 on Friday April 27, highlighting the great impact Louisiana, and New Orleans in particular, have had on Friedlander’s career. ⠀

In celebration of NOMA’s 2013 acquisition of Robert Rauschenberg’s monumental fabric collage "Melic Meeting (Spread)," NOMA presents “Collage in Context: Exploring Robert Rauschenberg’s Legacy for Contemporary Art” on Wednesday, 4/25 from 3-4 PM.

The program will be a conversation between artist Ebony Patterson and NOMA's Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Katie Pfohl, about Rauschenberg’s continued resonance for contemporary artists who work with fabric, found objects and collage. This program is made possible through the generous support of The Helis Foundation. Admission to this program is free to Louisiana residents, courtesy of The Helis Foundation. #explorenoma

On this day in 1588, the great artist Paolo Caliari, known as Paolo Veronese, died. Veronese was an Italian Renaissance painter, based in Venice, known for large-format history paintings of religion and mythology. The artist is considered one of the great painters of the Late Renaissance.
▫️
NOMA's new exhibition, "Veronese in Murano," features two Renaissance masterpieces by the celebrated artist. NOMA is honored to be the second and final venue for the paintings, titled "St. Jerome in the Wilderness" and "St. Agatha Visited in Prison by St. Peter," on view April 19 through September 3, 2018. The exhibition was organized by The Frick Collection in honor of the full restoration of the works by Venetian Heritage, and with the generous support of BVLGARI. Though known to scholars, the paintings’ remote location in a church in Murano, an island in the lagoon of Venice known today for its glassmaking studios and shops, made them difficult to access and study. "Veronese in Murano" marks the first time the restored masterworks have been exhibited outside Italy since their creation 450 years ago. #nomaveronese

In collaboration with Marta Rodriguez Maleck and Kevin Brisco of Good Children Gallery, NOMA’s activation of Carlos Rolón’s “Hustleman Cart” invites you to “Take An Apology/Leave An Apology.” The activation examines the weight and currency of apologies in contemporary culture by filling the cart with apology letters, ranging from personal letters of atonement written by the artists’ friends and families, to notes penned by local elementary and middle school students, to public statements issued by well-known politicians and celebrities. Through April 8th, museum visitors are asked to exchange a personal letter of apology for one on the cart. 📝 Check out our Instagram Story for more 📝#nomaoutsidein
