Cry Me A River a group exhibition of art and performances included in P.3 + the satellite program of Prospect.3 New Orleans International Contemporary Art Biennial.
"Cry Me A River" immerses the viewer in a spirited flow of reflection between symbols and rituals. Set in the historic Etoile Polaire #1 masonic lodge, one of Louisiana' s oldest landmarks and historic masonic lodges.
The title of the exhibition Cry Me A River is inspired by the torch song of the same name implying double meaning and dualities. The site itself is the primary conduit for the themes, underlying meaning, secrets, rituals, symbolism and dualities. Including objects, sculpture, photography, collage, drawings, painting, and installations.
