The team behind Atlanta’s OuterSpace Project will host the InnerSpace Project this Saturday (April 25) with more than 60 contemporary artists from nine countries. The festival, which begins at noon on Twitch.tv, will include live art sessions, interviews, workshops, a Secret Walls Illustration Battle, virtual gallery shows, DJ sets, a cocktail-making class, virtual art exhibitions and more. Atlanta artists taking part include Aesek, Ashton Anderson, Lela Brunet, Daniel Byrd, Catlanta, Ryan Coleman, Dr. Dax, Peter Ferrari, FRKO, Tim Kent, Matt Letrs, Greg Mike, Sanithna, Thomas Turner, Vayne and Chris Veal. Free. RSVP and more details HERE.
Thomas Deans Fine Art opens Four Figurative Painters, its first online exhibition, at noon Friday (April 24) on its website. Artists taking part are Benjamin Frederick, Atlantans Ana Guzman and Evan Jones and Christina Renfer Vogel of Chattanooga. Individual works can be seen in the gallery by appointment when the city of Atlanta’s quarantine lifts and safety allows. The gallery hopes to make the virtual exhibition a physical one soon.
Flux Projects continues its Virtual Arts Series with Rhythm of a Virus, an animated data visualization by the Atlanta experiential design studio MEPTIK. “Our hope with this piece is to encourage the community on both local and global levels to stay home and flatten the curve of Covid-19,” MEPTIK says in its artist statement. “Every design seen in this piece is driven by data, in real time, to bring a visual awareness to the devastating impact of this virus.” Previous series entries — from filmmakers Micah and Whitney Stansell, cellist Okorie Johnson and animated micro-memoirist Anne Corbitt — are still available online.
In times like these when we are separated by necessity, ArtsATL is needed more than ever. Please consider a donation so we can continue to highlight Atlanta’s creative community in this unprecedented time.
