Seen at NOMA

Jennifer Odem Encounters NOMA's Permanent Collection:

In an exhibition designed to create a dialogue between Jennifer Odem's sculptures and selections from the permanent collection, works by artists such as Yves Klein, upper left, were chosen based on their stylistic and formal resonances. A New Orleans native, Odem has created numerous site-specific installations locally and abroad. Combining rigid and delicate materials such as hydro-stone and with flocking fiber, her sculptures navigate between monumentality and playfulness. The structurally imposing "mound" sculptures entice with the notion of a hidden interior. Through May 24.

Odem's most recent outdoor installation, "Blue Fence," is on view beginning May 9 in the Upper Ninth Ward at the intersection of Poland Avenue at North Miro.
