Wayne Martin Belger at Artspace Shreveport

La Luz de Jesus presents
Wayne Martin Belger
BORDERLANDS: Journeys from Destruction to Creation
Curated by Matt Kennedy

Runs through May 12, 2012 at Artspace Shreveport, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council exhibition space under the directorship of recent Academy Award winner Bill Joyce. Special thanks to manager, Megan Porter, for helping to facilitate Wayne Martin Belger's residency. The clip above aired on local Louisiana TV station KTBS, and I was told that Wayne's show was the most positively received event in the museum's history!

There's a great photostream archive here.

This is the second La Luz de Jesus / SRAC joint exhibition. The first was Scott Hove back in 2010. Scott Hove returns in April with Joe Sorren as part of two tandem solo exhibitions.

  1. Hi, Matt.
    Would love to see the record reflect that the Belger video was shot, edited and given soundtrack by Shreveport multi-media artist Robert Trudeau. Also, the "great photostream archive" is composed entirely of still photos by Trudeau.
    If you're a Belger fan please see the 8-min version of his artist talk. Long shoot but the guy's charming.
