Dana Haugaard: Way Way Back: Gothenburg, NE 1987
January 23 – March 8, 2020
Dana Haugaard received his MFA from the University of Iowa and is a graduate of Emory University. Dana has been a resident in the Atlanta Contemporary’s Studio Artist Program and is a Hambidge Fellow. He has recently been shown at the Zuckerman Museum at Kennesaw State University, the Macon Museum of Arts and Science, and the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art in Grand Rapids Michigan. As an artist working with sound and sensation, Dana investigates how our self-awareness in any given moment functions in relationship to our presence in space, place, and time. He works with sensation and perception to create environments that provoke a heightened sense of awareness of one’s self. Dana uses and manipulates sound, reflective surfaces, and vibrations to construct experiences that draw attention to and call into question our relationship to our surroundings. These situations play with physical, spatial, and temporal reference points to take what is often a minimal presentation and make it an overwhelming experience. Dana currently teaches Visual Art at Emory University as part of the Department of Art History.

Bojana Ginn: Every line is sentient, every dot is alive.
March 12 – April 19, 2020
Bojana Ginn is an interdisciplinary artist and a former MD and scientist. Her work explores contemporary existence in the age of digital and biotech: interactions between body, nature and technology. Her large scale site-specific installations are built with organic fiber, digital video projections, and LEDs. “I see my works as microscopic places being magnified, both tactile and virtual. Reflective and speculative, they are playgrounds for questions about the now and future of body and environment, transhumanism, and biotechnology.” Born in Serbia, Yugoslavia in 1974, Ginn graduated from Medical School in Belgrade, Serbia in 2001, and completed a Masters in Fine Art in Sculpture at SCAD Atlanta in 2013. Bojana is the recipient of the 2018 Ellsworth Kelly Award and a finalist for the 2019 Burke Prize, at The Museum of Arts and Design, NY. She is a winner of a 2018 Working Artist Project at The Museum of Contemporary Art of GA, and her video work was exhibited at the 2016 Venice Architectural Biennale. Ginn has collaborated with NASA and Emory University. She was a speaker and a featured artist for BEINGS 2015: International Conference on Ethics in Bioengineering. Selected a finalist for a 2015 World Technology Award in Art, Ginn serves as a fellow at the organization. Her works are held in the collections of The MOCA GA, Cyber Center of Augusta University, and numerous private collections. She lives in Decatur, GA, with her son and husband, with whom she shares a 2014 Tanne Foundation Award.
