The Atrium Wall installation, located in the Atlanta Contemporary lobby, invites contemporary artists to create a site-specific commission and temporal solo exhibition.
The Atrium Wall—measuring 20 feet long and 14 feet high—provides artists with an opportunity to push their craft and practice by creating something beyond their normal scope and scale. Each large work remains on the wall for at least 6 months before being painted over and recommissioned for the next show. By viewing these installations as temporal solo exhibitions, it allows us to exhibit contemporary art long-term while we transition between exhibitions in our main galleries.
