The Front is invading Birmingham!

The Front, an artist-run collective and not-for-profit gallery, fosters the development of contemporary art in the city of New Orleans through innovative exhibitions, lectures, screenings, performances, and other arts programming, all of which are free and open to the public. Founded by artists in 2008 amidst the post-Katrina resurgence of New Orleans and committed to a spirit of grassroots DIY determinism, The Front cultivates new and experimental work, in particular from emerging artists, but also from nationally and internationally known artists.

The Front includes 14 acclaimed artists from multiple artistic disciplines. Works from all 14 Front members will be on display Aug 24 – Sept 21, 2012. A free opening reception is planned from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, August 24, at the gallery, 900 13th St. South.
The Front members include:
Kyle Bravo
Rachel Avena Brown
Lee Deigaard
Andrea Ferguson
Dave Greber
Rachel Jones
Morgana King
Stephanie Patton
Brooke Pickett
Alex Podesta
Claire Rau
Megan Roniger
Jonathan Traviesa
Ryan Watkins-Hughes
Over the next couple of days leading up to their Birmingham debut, the UAB Visual Arts Gallery Blog will be showcasing excerpts from the Front’s recent PSA poster exhibition from the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center.
