    • Synopsis
    • City of Memory explores the ways in which the cataclysmic events in the wake of Hurricane Katrina became imprinted on the memory of visual artists who lived through them. Robert Adanto’s latest offering documents the unique ability of New Orleans’ artists to react when faced with catastrophe. From what looked like the death of a great American city emerged a generation of artists whose energy might prove a source of renewal for the rest of the world.

      Mr. Adanto began interviewing artists in New Orleans in July of 2010, nearly five years after Hurricane Katrina. Over the course of three years, he interviewed several important artists who currently live and work in New Orleans, including Deborah Luster, Tameka Norris, Gina Phillips, Dawn DeDeaux, Rontherin Ratliff, Rondell Crier, Samuel Portera, Jennifer Shaw, Kevin Kline, John Woodin, Thomas Neff, and others.
