“Absence of Certainty,” the title of Susan Cofer’s lovely exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, put me in mind of a poster I once saw, which read: “Teenagers! Tired of being hassled by your stupid parents? Move out now while you still know everything!”
Maturity is the recognition of how little you know. The trick is to embrace the unknown with the fearlessness of youth. For artists, this can mean the flowering of a new direction. Think Monet’s “Water Lilies.”
And so it has been for Cofer, whose progression toward a new expression is charted through the drawings in this show, and for Lucinda Bunnen, as demonstrated in the photographs in “From Hatcher’s Pond,” in the adjacent gallery.
The museum is hosting two additional exhibits: Rocío Rodríguez’s wall drawing in the education and resource center and “Certain Artists,” a multi-generational exhibit of drawings by Georgia artists that Cofer curated using works from the permanent collection as well as her own.
For the full review, see the AJC. Tomorrow on ArtsCriticATL, Rodríguez talks about her piece.
