Social inequality, population growth, climate change. The artist Dawn DeDeaux does not shy away from difficult topics. Since the 1970s, she has been probing humanity’s present and future in videos, performances, and installations. This catalogue, published to coincide with her first comprehensive museum exhibition at the New Orleans Museum of Modern Art, presents DeDeaux’s work spanning five decades: from early multimedia works using radio and satellite to recent works from her MotherShip series, in which she imagines humanity’s escape from a destroyed Earth. In her work, art is always closely intertwined with philosophy, science, and new technologies. Consequently, the text contributions go beyond art to contextualize her work.

DAWN DeDEAUX (*1952) is a pioneer in the field of art and new technology. Based in New Orleans, she has had participated in exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Mass MoCa, and the Transart Foundation for Art and Anthropology, among others.
