Ashley Anderson is opening Shinobi Marilyn, a new series at Emily Amy Gallery — and in the process, reviving the never-dead Marilyn Monroe. The exhibition is mixed-media, with animated gifs, collage, and painting and takes its title from the discovery of images embedded in the 1987 videogame "Shinobi." Anderson has built her works around the idea that the found images were in fact a tribute to Andy Warhol's Monroe paintings.
After the jump: more goings-on around town. Plus a drum line.
Take one contemporary dance troupe, one violinist, an orchestra, and add some hip-hop. Then you'll have the rough idea for "Remove the Ego," a fusion of a dance show that incorporates a lot more than just dance. At Terminal West at 8:30 p.m.
Martha Whittington is opening a new project, deus ex machina, at the Museum of Contemporary Art that includes dancers, music, and "a precisely constructed environment of obscurely comprehensible machines and devices," all of which aim to capture "the moment when machines became gods and workers became machines." A reception opens tonight from 6:30-8:30.
Two new exhibits open at Kai Lin Art: POP!, a four-artist showing featuring Lucha Rodriguez, Nathan Sharratt, Jon Arge, and Richard Tapp; and Shamanic Skies: contemporary masters from Mongolia. Receptions for both run from 7-10 p.m.
Georgia Tech's ensemble-in-residence Sonic Generator will perform Steve Reich's Drumming at Goodson Yard, hosted by The Goat Farm Arts Center. It's a free show, starting at 9:30 p.m., and — since Reich's piece involves bongos, marimbas, and glockenspiels — promises to be something of a minor spectacle.
Brooklyn photographer Radcliffe Roye's J'Ouvert: At the Devil's Playground is closing this Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Chastain Arts Center. See it if you haven't: the pictures are gorgeously luminescent.
It's the last day to see Drew Galloway's Light and Shadows at the Marcia Wood Gallery. You've got between 11 a.m.-6 p.m. to take a look at Galloway's works, which have a dynamic texture — and with good reason: they're done on sheets of patinaed metal.
The Starving Artist Games don't actually involve anyone starving. Instead, the event, co-hosted by BURNAWAY and Mint Gallery, is modeled after a country fair with "a dunk tank featuring local art figures and critics, [and] a special artist-designed cornhole game." At the corner of Krog and Irwin Streets, from noon-6 p.m.
As dusk falls on Saturday night, the High Museum will screen The Water and the Blood by Atlanta filmmaker Micah Stansell. The event is part of the High's Culture Shock: Homegrown program, featuring Southern artists. The museum is going farther than just showing Stansell's work, however: it will be projected onto the High's exterior walls.
