Celebrate the openings of the new exhibitions and project spaces. 

Atlanta Contemporary is pleased to present She Is Here. With a roster of 20 multigenerational, multicultural and multidisciplinary female artists - She Is Here intentionally defies existing norms for art institutions where recognition and inclusion of women is underwhelming. She Is Here fosters women working with women, and women supporting women.

Opening concurrently is Gracie DeVito + Andy Giannakakis in Contemporary On-Site. Curated by Tif Sigfrids, Gracie DeVito + Andy Giannakakis is an exhibition comprised of two paintings, one by each of the aforementioned artists. The two share a sense of immersion, told in the intimacy of scale and fixation of touch. Through this, their work has a contemporary quality, emphasizing the painting’s existence as a matter of its making.
