I'm heading off to Atlanta tomorrow (my first time there) to review portfolios for Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Each October, Atlanta is transformed by over 150 photo-related exhibitions and events, including a core of ACP programs hosted by a diverse network of venues across the Atlanta metro area. I'm really excited to have been asked to participate, joining my illustrious colleagues David Bram of Fraction, Danielle Avram-Curatorial Assistant, Photography & Modern and Contemporary Art at the High Museum of Art, Taj Forer - Editor, Daylight Magazine, Sylvie Fortin - Editor, Art Papers Magazine, Stuart Horodner - Artistic Director, Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Michael Kochman - Creative Director, Turner Image Management, Lisa Kurzner - Independent Curator, Writer, Art Consultant, Yan Li and Li Shufeng - Curators, Beijing, China
Evan Mirapaul - collector, art critic, independent curator, Laura Moya - Director, Photolucida, Christopher Rauschenberg - Co-Founder, Co-Curator and Board Chairman, Blue Sky Gallery, Anna Walker Skillman - Owner, Jackson Fine Art, Susan Todd-Raque - Private dealer, independent curator, Paula Tongarelli - Executive Director, Griffin Museum of Photography, Caroline Wall - Director, Robert Mann Gallery.
I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of work and getting a feel for the photography scene in Atlanta. I will try to blog about what I do and what I see, so check in over the weekend.
And if you're in the area, come on by and take in the sights!
