Conceived as a “live arts magazine,” Antenna::Signals is a variety show-styled event from the artists and writers of Antenna. Each “issue” of Antenna::Signals features a spread of 6-8 local artists, writers, musicians, scientists, activists and scholars whose practices relate thematically. The live magazine drops 4 times each year, accompanied by the release of a two-dimensional print publication.
Kolaj Fest New Orleans is a multi-day festival and symposium about contemporary collage and its role in art, culture and society. The festival will bring together artists and art professionals and feature presenters leading panel discussions, addressing key curatorial issues and asking why collage is often treated as a second-rate medium.
