Aaron Turner – Black Alchemy: Remembering Fazendeville
December 9, 2022 through January 29, 2023

“Black Alchemy: Remembering Fazendeville will open on Friday, December 9, 2022 at Ogden Museum of Southern Art and exhibits photographs from Fazendeville (“The Village”), a former African American community in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana. Although the physical community no longer exists, it remains ever-present in the memories of former residents, descendants of the community and through plaques dedicated to its memory. Turner states, “There is a complicated narrative and context as to why the community is no longer around; it involves the community finding itself positioned on a historical revolutionary war site.” He continues, “In this project, my role as the artist is to reveal what is hidden, in collaboration with history, through the photographic archive.””
