The show that was up took the entire building into consideration. More importantly the work engaged the viewer in a fantastical way by compelling the view to ask what was being looked at, was this part of the interior design or is it the art? In the end it was obviously the art and I look forward to the next... 更多
It cost me $26 to stare at nothing; there was three levels of galleries, but one floor was white walls with three random black canvases, another gallery was of a film just talking about the streets, and the last floor was black cubes on the floor. I'm sure there was a message to be found in these galleries, but I... 更多
Waste of time and money. Hardly any art inside and the art they did have was overwhelmingly typical and uninspiring. Go instead to galleries on Julia Street or across the street to the awesome Ogden. Very disappointed. No food in the "cafe" either.
Very disappointed with this museum. Looking at the four-story building, you'd think it would be full of art. Not so much. Museum is only on the bottom two floors and the work is sporadic and unimpressive. Go next door to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. That's what you're looking for:-)
What a disappointment. Spartan exhibits with little attraction. Save your money and your time. Instead, go across the street to the Ogden Museum Much more satisfying.
It's true that there aren't a lot of exhibits here, but the space is unique and beautiful and the art that is there is interesting. It's worth taking a look and is right across the street from the Museum for Contemporary Southern Art which is not to be missed.
The building itself is worth a trip, very contempary and unique yet its still under renovation ( at least part of it) Enjoyed the first floor which featured the works of Radcliffe Bailey ,second floor was also great which featured "The carnival and performance art of the Caribbean. Third floor I believe had children's art..but the room itself was amazing.... 更多
Beautiful space. Expensive for VERY VERY little on display. One small room on the 3rd floor with maybe 6 pieces in it. Another gallery filled with HIGH SCHOOL ART [I had to pay to see this?]. Another floor with the stupidist installation about Carnival in the Carribean which made no sense, and very little "art" to look at. Some kitchy... 更多
I visited on March 11th 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit regarding Afro-Caribbean Mardi Gras experiences. Maybe the last couple of reviewers didn't have much experience with contemporary art, or don't really enjoy contemporary art, maybe it's just not their thing? If it's not, then you definitely won't enjoy the CAC, it's definitely contemporary. The full effects of the art... 更多
The range of opinions on the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans are all valid - it all just depends... 更多
