TAGGED exhibition at A Gallery for Fine Photography

On view through January 12, 2019

Walking the graffiti gauntlet from my house to my studio, I am confronted by a lexicon of rampant misogyny, violence and sexual insults. The messages may be verbal but their effects are visceral. We are being ‘tagged’- as hos bitches and worse. But I am not that woman.

Why have women become the targets of the rage and frustration expressed?  Why are women bearing the consequences for injustices they have not committed? Where are the graffiti messages by women meant for men?

I do not have the answers to these questions, all I have are these images of what it feels like to be a woman walking these streets.

And in this I know I am not alone.

Hammond, LA: May 11

Please join us for the opening of Josephine’s exhibition, Salutations, at Hammond Regional Arts Center.

Opening Reception with the Artist 
Friday, May 11, 6 pm
Hammond Regional Arts Center
217 E. Thomas Street
Hammond, LA 70401

Organized by and from the collection of the New Orleans Museum of Art, this exhibition is the largest presentation to date of works from Josephine Sacabo’s Salutations series. In Salutations, Josephine Sacabo combines collaged and distorted photographic images with a wet collodion on metal process that dates back to the 19th century to create a world that is barely recognizable as such, hovering like a memory or a dream in the space between the concrete and the ineffable. Sacabo will give a presentation on her photography on display in the exhibition at 6 p.m. during the opening reception.


New Orleans, LA: October 14

Please join us for the premier of Josephine’s new series Barking at God – Retablos Mundanos at A Gallery for Fine Photography. 

Opening Reception 
Saturday, October 14, 7 pm
A Gallery for Fine Photography
241 Chartres Street
New Orleans, LA 70130

“I began working on the images one day out of anguish and grief and I ended up rescued by a depth of meaning I never really meant to touch. The resulting 40 images are 22 x 28 inch hand-colored photogravures combining the graffiti of New Orleans with religious imagery from San Miguel in Mexico – the dueling iconographies of the two places I call home. 

I have no final judgement to make on the subjects. Each expression is presented with its consolations and its cruelties. They are what they are and I hope the viewer finds something in them that speaks to what they themselves may have experienced, needed, or felt.”

– Josephine Sacabo
