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.
