HIS & HERS: THE SUMMER COLLECTION, 2013
His & Hers: The Summer Collection is a solo show by Grissel Guiliano presented at The Front August 10 - September 8. Grissel Giuliano is a photographer and multimedia artist who moved to New Orleans in 2006. As a young girl she spent time on her grandfather’s farm in Connecticut, which fostered her inquisitive spirit towards nature and science. With an intrinsic curiosity, she later went on to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Vermont. Taking on an apprenticeship with a photographer and sidelining as a bird keeper in New Orleans, she began to connect her passion for the arts and sciences. Grissel’s artwork incorporates humor while exploring themes of vulnerability, mortality, and repetitiousness. She has had solo shows at Coup d’Oeil Art Consortium in New Orleans. Her photographs have been exhibited at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans; the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans; and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO. Her work is included in the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation’s collection and Marcel Wisznia’s Saratoga Collection. She currently resides in New Orleans, and can be found prowling the streets for yard sales.
