In June 2019, the Lucky Art Fair will host 35 New Orleans based artists a free room at the Lucky Inn Hotel, a site currently under development. The fair will take place over two weekends and draw a large local and national audience, offering contemporary New Orleans artists prominence and exposure infrequently found in our city’s major art institutions. Organized by a union of five artists and arts professionals tired of the hierarchical structures of the art world in New Orleans and beyond, the Lucky Art Fair was born of a desire for radical equity in regard to artistic income and opportunity. We have seen the content of the work exalted by the art world evolve, often in politically and socially radical ways, but it’s underlying financial structure continues to only serve a select few.
June 7-9th and 14-16th
