Exhibition Opens – Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art - 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM

The Nasher Museum presents Southern Accent: Seeking the American South in Contemporary Art, an exhibition that questions and explores the complex and contested space of the American South. One needs to look no further than literature, cuisine and music to see evidence of the South’s profound influence on American culture, and consequently much of the world. This unprecedented exhibition addresses and complicates the many realities, fantasies and myths that have long captured the public’s imagination about the American South. Presenting a wide range of perspectives, from both within and outside of the region, the exhibition creates a composite portrait of southern identity through the work of 60 artists. The art reflects upon and pulls apart the dynamic nature of the South’s social, political and cultural landscape. Southern Accent is on view at the Nasher Museum from September 1, 2016, through January 8, 2017. The exhibition catalogue will be available for purchase at the Nasher Museum Store.

 
This exhibition is co-organized by Trevor Schoonmaker, Chief Curator and Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Curator of Contemporary Art at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, and Miranda Lash, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. The exhibition will travel to the Speed Art Museum, where it will be on view April 29 – August 20, 2017.
