Ronchini Gallery is pleased to present Almost Acquaintances, an exhibition of new works by New Orleans based artist Tameka Norris in collaboration with ARTNESIA. Norris’s multi-disciplinary practice includes performance, video, sound, photography, and installation.
The title of the show, Almost Acquaintances, references her relationship with New Orleans and presents a new series of paintings depicting buildings in Gulfport and Biloxi – Tameka Norris’s childhood home – and quintessential shotgun houses in New Orleans, where the artist lives and works. The works take on titles such as Ms. Rosie, Josephine, or Pass Rd that reference women in Norris’s family that have passed away or streets in the area.
