October 3-30
Jenny K. Hager
Second Line
In conjunction with the Annual Art Students League/
Sloss Furnaces Iron Pour
Reception
: Friday, October 3 | 5:00-8:00 p.m.
Jenny Hager most often works in long-term series and
considers herself a hybrid artist—part sculptor, part
performance artist, part video artist, part printmaker, and
part stilt-walker. Her
Rust and Satin
series examines the
symbolic nature of materials, unifying and highlighting the
masculine and feminine qualities of cast iron and satin.
Another body of work,
Flight Lab
, is a series of sculptural
installations that uses video to explore the mechanical
aspects of flight as well as the dream to fly. Most recently,
Hager has been involved in a series she calls
Second Line
,
infusing a personal narrative with large-scale parade animals
inspired by the Chinese zodiac and New Orleans parade
culture.
Sloss Furnaces Iron Pour
Friday, October 3 | 5:00-8:00 p.m.

Watch as Sloss Furnaces’ metal arts sculptors
