The Contemporary On-Site series welcomes The Fuel & Lumber Company from Birmingham, Alabama to Atlanta Contemporary. This installation features work by Douglas Degges, Mariah Dekkenga, Ann Pibal, Eleanor Ray and Nancy Shaver. 

Our resolve as an art institution in the South, is to shine a light on some of the current crop of exceptional artist-run spaces operating in our region. Located in our former SHOP (Gallery 6), we invite these spaces for a two month take over, to exhibit, play, and experiment. We anticipate these spaces to provoke reflection, expansion, and ultimately modify the ethos of our former days.

Since 1973, the Atlanta Contemporary has provided an alternative to the art and cultural hierarchy in the contemporary art scene. The establishment, founded by artists, was built upon the principles of engaging experimentation and risk-taking through exhibitions, programming, and support of working artists.

Bio

The Fuel And Lumber Company

In their collective past, most American towns had a fuel and lumber company to provide basic goods and services.  Believing art and culture to be among the needs vital to the health of any community, artists Amy Pleasant and Pete Schulte founded The Fuel and Lumber Company in 2013 in Birmingham, Alabama to facilitate exhibitions and related programming in the Southeast and beyond. The Fuel And Lumber Company is an idea, not a traditional brick and mortar space, dedicated to contemporary art and community engagement.
