5-7:30 pm: Art on the Spot family activity table
5:30-8:30 pm: Music by Reed Turchi
6:30 pm: “Japanese Ceramics Tomorrow,” lecture with Joe Earle


Raised in the Swannanoa Valley outside of Asheville, North Carolina, Reed Turchi grew up playing piano, focusing on boogie woogie and New Orleans styles before becoming infatuated with slide guitar. While learning Hill Country Blues firsthand in North Mississippi, he founded his blues-rock trio “TURCHI,” which released its debut album Road Ends in Water in 2012. Five years and six albums later, after touring extensively and experimenting with a variety of styles, Turchi has returned to the music that led him to take up guitar. His newest album, Tallahatchie, is stripped of studio tricks, with songs presented simply: a slide, a voice, an acoustic guitar, and a wooden chair on a wooden floor.


Using examples from the Kurt Gitter and Alice Yelen collection of contemporary Japanese ceramics on view in New Forms, New Voices, as well as others by emerging artists, all of them made during the present century, Joe Earle will show how the art form has reached an interesting point of development. As the time-worn narratives of “innovation within tradition” and “Japaneseness versus Westernness” recede into insignificance, it becomes easier for scholars to look at these works from a more global perspective.

Joe Earle was Director of Japan Society Gallery in New York from 2007 to 2012 and has held leadership positions in Asian art departments at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Now based in London, he works as Senior Consultant for Bonhams auction house in the U.K. and U.S. He has also revived his former career as a prolific author of Japanese art catalogues, with no fewer than six titles due to be published this year alone.

Friday Nights at NOMA is supported in part by grant funds from the Azby Fund; Ruby K. Worner Charitable Trust; New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation; and the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council as administered by the Arts Council of New Orleans.
