Curated by Jayme McLellan of Civilian Art Projects in Washington, DC, Frontier Preachers developed out of a desire to investigate a frontier anew, long after the heyday of the river as central artery in the heart of America. This new frontier, as told through eleven emerging and established artists from New Orleans, explores a changed landscape and recognizes that the opportunities of the past may indeed have limits.
As part of our series of podcasts, we spoke with the artists and curator of Frontier Preachers. For this podcast we spoke with McLellan about the origins and themes of the show.
