In a global, digital age, art, like everything else, risks turning into an unmoored commodity in virtual space. That's why shows like The Bull Meets the Bayou are so refreshing, reasserting that art emanates from real communities in certain times and places and then strengthening those communities by forging bonds between them. The exhibit, curated by local artist Jaclyn Bowie, presents the works of Durhamites alongside New Orleans's Level Artist Collective. Featuring collaborative installations, videos, sculptures, paintings, drawings, and a library of artist books and zines, the exhibit has a variety of events before its June 2 closure. The New Orleans artists will be present on Third Friday as well as for this Sunday-night artist talk, which also features a Durham Cinematheque film screening, music by Tescon Pol, and puppetry by Jeghetto. Future events include a May 29 panel discussion on artists supporting artists and a June 2 closing reception.
