Past Event May 1, 2015 – December 30, 2015
Off-site programming with Endless Road: A Look at Nexus Press
Facilitated by Beth Malone, executive director of Dashboard Co-Op and organized with Rachel Reese at The Contemporary
TRUCK TALK is a mobile, ephemeral, and “live” radio show that builds an audio archive inside a 1993 Nissan pickup truck. TRUCK TALK aggregates live oral history, attempting to collect memories from the vibrant characters that made Atlanta art history through the lens of Nexus. TRUCK TALK invites various figures connected with Nexus’s past to explore the geographical and ideological shifts the institution took throughout the 1980s-1990s during a 15-minute truck ride. While road tripping with Malone between various Nexus-inspired locales in Atlanta, contributors will explore their own experience with the institution as it moved from fledgling underground artist coop to an established, contemporary arts organization. Each of these recollected moments, however pivotal or seemingly inconsequential, will attempt to inform the impact this historic institution had, and continues to have, on the Atlanta art community.
TRUCK TALK is an off-site program concurrent with Endless Road: A Look at Nexus Press
