There’s been an epic surge in public art exhibitions, here in the ATL. And we can add another one to the ever-growing list! Thanks to Orange Barrel Media, the largest operator of outdoor signage in the Atlanta Arts & Entertainment District, and internationally recognized artist Genevieve Gaignard, a digital screen in Downtown Atlanta has been transformed into a dynamic public art destination.
‘Look At Them Look At Us’ delves into issues like race, class, and gender, with different themes and ideas seen throughout. The exhibit features photographic works of eight Atlanta-based emerging artists on the new digital display. The exhibition amplifies themes such as the construction of identity, Blackness, authenticity, and invisibility.
You can find the exhibition on the north façade of the parking garage at 79 Marietta St. Check out this Instagram post by Arts & Entertainment Atlanta for the full line-up of featured photographers. And while you’re at it, follow your favorites to keep local art thriving.
