Galerie XII Los Angeles hosted an opening art party for “Mississipi Dream” on February 4, 2023. The exhibition coincides with the international launch of Niehues’s new book (Lannoo Publishing). A unique performance by Jimmy “Duck” Holmes from Bentonia, MS, will also be featured at the event. You have until March 25, 2023, to view the show.
In this passionate exploration inside the culture of the Deep South, Niehues captures sides of Mississippi far beyond landscapes and blue skies. The raw and passionate body of works captures a range of moments, from epic performances by Blues legends at iconic local Juke joints to more intimate settings. The photographs tell a story that feels both nostalgic and almost surreal and is sure to inspire a deep sense of what life is like in the Magnolia State.
On view: February 4, 2023 – March 25, 2023
