Southern artist explores race, place and power in New Orleans exhibition
Juan Logan, Sugar House, 2011. (detail). Mixed media 6' x 16'.


NEW ORLEANS, LA.- The Ogden Museum of Southern Art opened its latest exhibition, Juan Logan: I’ll Save You Tomorrow, Thursday, February 13 at 6PM during its weekly Ogden After Hours music series. The exhibition consists of 29 large-scale paintings—symbolic and monumental in nature.

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Juan Logan now lives and works in Belmont, North Carolina. At once abstract and representational, his large mixed media paintings, sculptures and installations address issues of place and power as they relate to the history of the Civil Rights Movement and contemporary culture. Through repetition of personal iconic symbols, Logan's narrative is a commentary about cycles of oppression and the complex definitions of identity, making visible the hierarchical structures and social stereotypes that shape individuals, institutions, and the material and mental landscapes of contemporary life.

The mature works of Juan Logan exist not only as beautiful and well-crafted abstract paintings, but exist on a deeper, iconic, and richly narrative level, says Ogden Museum Chief Curator, Bradley Sumrall. “They challenge the viewer to question perceptions of our history, our views of others, and our very selves.”

"Regarding these paintings is like slowly opening the flood gates of a dam and releasing a reservoir of meaning. At a distance you first see the artist's constructed image, then all the disparate materials that make the image and contribute to its meaning are revealed on closer approach,” says William Andrews, Director of the Ogden Museum. “Juan Logan has created a masterful body of work that is rich in allusion and narrative but is ultimately decipherable and quite poetic."
