Jockum Nordström
Current Museum Exhibition: Why Is Everything a Rag
Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans

March 22–June 17

Jockum Nordström: Why Is Everything a Rag is the Swedish artist’s first solo exhibition at an American museum. The show includes children’s books, jazz and blues vinyl covers, collages, drawings, paintings, and paper sculptures dating from the start of Nordström’s career to the present day. In addition to his artistic practice, New Orleans has been a source of inspiration for the artist’s music, which he creates as part of the band Joakim Åhlund & Jockum Nordström.

The artist discussed this exhibition as part of a conversation with Laird Borrelli-Persson in Vogue in 2017.
