Visiting Curator Series
Naima J. Keith
Presented by Flux Projects
Flux Projects is pleased to present curator Naima J. Keith at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. The Flux Projects Visiting Curator Series invites esteemed national and international curators to conduct studio visits with Atlanta-based artists. The goal for the program is to generate exposure and opportunity for area artists and cultivate broader recognition for Atlanta’s vibrant and innovative arts community. During their visit, each curator also presents a public program.
Flux Projects engages Atlanta’s public spaces with thought-provoking art that changes the way people experience the city and think about our community.
