Leavings: A Rachel David & Shawn Hall collaboration

Rachel and Shawn both make work inspired by the natural world, even as their individual art takes very disparate form and uses wildly divergent materials from each other. Rachel David is a metal smith working with forged steel on a large-scale and Shawn Hall is a painter and multimedia artist working with video, installation and performance.

The concepts surrounding their work - Shawn’s focus on environmentalism and Rachel’s keen awareness of social justice issues, are inextricably intertwined in the real world - and it’s this intersection that the new collaborative work explores.

Their 4-month exhibition will include 4-5 pieces of large-scale interactive sculpture of forged steel, fabric, video and sound.

When and Where:

Leavings: a Rachel David & Shawn Hall collaboration will open on November 17, 2017 during Prospect 4 in New Orleans as a satellite exhibition and will run through February 28, 2018 with open hours 10am – 5pm daily Wednesday – Sunday. The gallery location is 912 Julia St in the CBD.
