- The Conquests and The Secret Museum of Mankind by Brian Dettmer, Altered Books
Brian Dettmer opens his first ever solo show in Atlanta, ABV hosts a circus of locals, Eyedrum checks your credit score, and more this weekend. Details after the jump.
MOCA GA hosts their annual pin-up sale, an open-invitation, non-juried exhibition of Georgia artists. The one-night event is always a packed party, though you have to be a member to attend. Good news for starving artists and students, a grant from Possible Futures has cut the membership price in half. That means you can attend this killer party and become a member of a great arts institution for a measly $12.50. More details at MOCA GA
ABV puts together a locals-only show tonight, Supernatural Circus
. R.Land, Sam Parker, Kenn Two Four, and others contribute. The drinks and DJ get started at 7 pm. More details at ABV
Brian Dettmer lives and works in Atlanta, though his celebrated career of altered-book sculptures has mostly been exhibited in galleries in San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and the like. His first solo show in Atlanta, New Worlds to Conquer
, opens at Saltworks
during the Westside Art Walk
. There will be an opening reception (after the daytime stroll) beginning at 7 pm. If you'd like to hear more about Dettmer's fascinating, surgical process for creating these sculptures, check out Felicia Feaster's Q&A
with him from a couple years ago or attend the exclusive (and pricey) gallery talk
at Saltworks at 4 pm on Sunday.
Curators Jonathan Dye and Mandie Turner Mitchell explore the ideas of credit (and cred
) with Eyedrum's latest exhibition, Plastic
. The list of participating artists is massive, including locals Lucha Rodriguez, Emma Adair, and others. Access to the galleries will depend on your "art credit score," which will give you access to "the Silver, Gold, Platinum or coveted Black gallery." More details at Eyedrum.
