Fahamu Pecou is the Shit! In fact, he's something of a Fahamenon. Fresh off trips to Paris and Miami's Art Basel, Pecou returns to Atlanta for an edition of his talk show "The 15 Project" at the Contemporary. Tonight's guests include High Museum contemporary art curator Michael Rooks and Grammy Award-winning singer and Arrested Development member Dionne Farris. DJ Kemit and the Strumming Mummy are also on tap.
