Southern Exposure: Artadia Awardees 2009 Atlanta
November 19, 2010 - January 2, 2011
"Hotlanta" comes to the South End with Southern Exposure: Artadia Awardees 2009 Atlanta. The seven artists featured in the exhibit provide a rich and varied snapshot of the thriving arts community in Atlanta - the unofficial capital city of the South. Lovingly nicknamed "Hotlanta" by locals and non-locals alike, the city poses a distinct foil to Boston's cooler New England climate.
Presented in partnership with Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue, "Southern Exposure" teases out a complex understanding of space and place through a range of materials and practices including painting, sculpture, video and photography.
Artists featured in the exhibit: Tristan Al-Haddad, Don Cooper (Judith Alexander Artadia Awardee), Ruth Dusseault, Fahamu Pecou, Jerry Siegel, Larry M. Walker, and Angela West.
