$H!T THAT AMERICANS LIKE: Riots & Rallies, Parades & Protests – Solo Exhibition by Michael Jones
March 25 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until April 1, 2021
The Swan Coach House Gallery hosts “$H!T THAT AMERICANS LIKE: Riots & Rallies, Parades & Protests”, a solo exhibition by Michael Jones, curated by K. Tauches. Michael Jones uses a gritty collage aesthetic to comment on things Americans like in 2021. His latest series conjures a mood of unrest in the country’s streets. Spliced and sampled into multiple layers, viewers will find gesture, portraiture, color, stencils made from found photos, Astroturf, glitter, graphics from printed ephemera, and found objects such as furniture and fragments left on the curb. Known for creating murals the size of buildings, it is no surprise that Jones’ relatively smaller paintings and assemblages pack a punch of energy, expressing a point of view rooted in the experiences and observations of a Black man brought up amid the bravado of Texas nationalism. Living and working in the Atlanta art community for decades, he speaks from a place of love and activism at a time of political and social transformation. Opening Reception is 3-7 p.m. Saturday, February 27; RSVP online. Artist in the House 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, March 20. Show runs through April 1. Gallery Hours Tuesday-Friday by online appointment 11 a.m.-3 p.m. ; Saturday walk-ins welcome 11 a.m.-3 p.m., no appointment needed. The digital catalog for this exhibition will be available online the week of March 2.
