*Event: Contemporary Talks: Greg Tate

Greg Tate is a writer, musician, and producer. He was Staff Writer at the Village Voice from 1987 to 2005, and his writings on culture and politics have been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Artforum, Rolling Stone, and Vibe, among others. Tate is musical director for Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber, and is Visiting Professor at Brown University in Providence. He will lecture on the history of Afrofuturism and black science fiction. We are proud to announce that this year’s Contemporary Talks series is sponsored by Possible Futures.

Exhibition: Deliverance

Deliverancepresents four provocative artists (Laura Ginn, Anya Liftig, Clifford Owens, Jayson Scott Musson) who use performance to create meditations on power, identity, sexuality, and race. Whether acting in front of an audience or the camera, they confront fears and fantasies, construct personas, learn new skills, and put their bodies into challenging situations. Like many of the figures from the history of art and popular culture that have inspired them, they are adept at shaping the space between the self and others––in gallery and museum contexts, outdoor sites, and the Internet. Final week! Closes Sun, Sep 16.

{Poem88} is pleased to present 1961, a series by conceptual photographer Nikita Gale of diptychs and collages of appropriated photographs and texts created, in a way, as an archaeological study. As a contemporary black artist based in the southern United States, Gale, in this body of work, makes her initial foray into deliberate explorations of racial, spatial, sexual and emotional identity.

In its Spring 2012 issue, The Oxford American named Nikita Gale No. 4 on its list of “100 Under 100: The New Superstars of Southern Art.” Born in Anchorage Alaska, she holds a BA in Anthropology (Archaeological Studies) from Yale University and has exhibited in numerous shows in Atlanta, Georgia; Santa Fe, New Mexico and New York City, New York. She was an Artist-in-Residence at The Center for Photography at Woodstock in Woodstock, New York in 2011 and is currently in the Studio Artist Program at The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center.

———————————————————————————————————————————–

The Westside Arts District (WAD) is an alliance of commercial galleries and non-profit art spaces located in Westside Atlanta (aka West Midtown / Midtown West) from the White Provisions development at 14th Street & Howell Mill Road, the galleries along 11th & 10th Streets, the Brickworks development at Howell Mill Road & Marietta Street, and southward to the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center on Means Street.

The group was formed in January 2009 in order to capitalize upon the growing momentum of the Westside as a destination for visual art. WAD members share a common vision: that the Westside is among the most dynamic and exciting areas in Atlanta to view, experience, and become educated on a variety of high quality visual artworks and practices.

3rd Saturday Art Walks are held every month from noon to 5 pm. Art talks, tours, and other events are scheduled to encourage public inquiry into the process, intention, and inspirations of the artwork and/or curatorial vision of the exhibitions.
