Southern Exposure: Artadia Awardees 2009 Atlanta

Curated by Dina Deitsch

About Southern Exposure: Artadia Awardees 2009 Atlanta:

“Hotlanta” comes to the South End with Southern Exposure: Artadia Awardees 2009 Atlanta. The seven artists featured in the exhibit provide a rich and varied snapshot of the thriving arts community in Atlanta – the unofficial capital city of the South. Lovingly nicknamed “Hotlanta” by locals and non-locals alike, the city poses a distinct foil to Boston’s cooler New England climate.

Presented in partnership with Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue, “Southern Exposure” teases out a complex understanding of space and place through a range of materials and practices including painting, sculpture, video and photography.
