Bill Daniel will discuss his recent exhibition, Ground Score currently
on view at Get This! (in conjunction with ACP 11/Atlanta Celebrates Photography)
Ground Score traces the unpredictable course of a self-taught artist who was originally turned on to the practice of documentation while participating in the skate/punk scene of Austin in the early 1980s. Included in this trip are records from a 20-year obsession with traditional rail graffiti, a bike messenger’s eye view of San Francisco’s graffiti that presaged a movement called “The Mission School”, and a range of large-format work resulting from a science and myth-based appetite for apocalyptic landscapes.

Contemporary Collage: Paper’s Many Forms, featuring gallery artists
Paul Rousso and Cecil Touchon and first hand selections from the
permanent collection of the International Museum of Collage,
Assemblage and Construction. By utilizing recycled printed matter,
both the distant and not-so-distant past are recalled with words,
icons, fonts, and colors that could only be of a certain time. In
their newfound form, these materials come to life and are forever
immortalized by the artists who seek to revive them.
