PARSE is proud to present “States of Existence", the third annual Loyola Untitled Juried Exhibition, which showcases the work of undergraduate and graduate students from New Orleans’ and Southeast Louisiana colleges and universities.


The exhibition was juried by New York-based curator Boshko Bosković. Nine artists were selected out of thirty-nine submissions from students at Delgado Community College, University of New Orleans, Tulane University, Loyola University New Orleans, University of Lafayette, and Southeastern Louisiana University. States of Existence proposes an expansive approach to representing the human condition while exploring the relationship to the self and our immediate environment. Building upon themes of mythology, vulnerability, healing, heritage, and nature, the exhibition reflects upon the unrestrained use of materials and practices in relation to object making and states of being. The artists’ works unfold through a multitude of textures including: clay, fabric, plastic, eggshells, tree bark, beads, and porcelain. The diverse aesthetic perspectives introduce forms of art imbued with notions such as preserving time, self- portraiture, trauma, damage, and repair.

Selected artists:

Alex Curtiss, Alfred Scott, Andrea Susarrey, Claire Beauchamp, Deja Belardo, Kelly McMahon, Kyra Hodes, Michelle Swafford, Zoe Blair-Schlagenhauf
