Before We Blast off: The Journey of Divine Forces
May 19, 2016 – November 6, 2016
For the last year Atlanta Contemporary has been exploring all of the nooks and crannies that our campus has to offer. One of the most visible, yet underutilized spaces is the large blank wall located in the Atrium. We view this space as a temporal solo exhibition, with each large work staying on the wall for at least 6 months, before being painted over and recommissioned for the next show.The site specific installation pushes the artists craft and practice to create something beyond their normal scale – the wall being 20 foot long and 14 foot high.
Multidisciplinary artist Michi Meko (b. 1974, Florence, Alabama) draws influence from Southern culture and contemporary urban. He has an uncanny ability to inspire an urbanized aesthetic that is innovative, challenging and thoughtful. The works allude to conditions both physical and psychological. His work is a proclamation of strength, perseverance and remembrance. He is represented by Alan Avery Art Company, Atlanta. Michi Meko lives and works in Atlanta.
