ATLANTA— March 19 – Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (Atlanta Contemporary) is pleased to announce a solo exhibition with Krista Clark.
Krista Clark draws moments between presence and absence in the historic West End Atlanta neighborhood of Westview. As the city’s sprawl changes the landscape, Westview’s Craftsman bungalows are in constant danger of erasure. As demographics shift, families are displaced, and vibrant homes are replaced by fences, dumpsters, blue tarps, and tools for large-scale construction, if not demolished entirely. In Atlanta Contemporary’s Sliver Space, Clark will mimic these environments by physically drawing in space, re-creating these architectural gestures while they are in a state of flux.
Krista Clark grew up in Burlington, VT and holds a BFA from Atlanta College of Art in printmaking, an MA from New York University and an MFA from Georgia State University. She lives and works in Atlanta, GA. Her work is included in the permanent collection of the High Museum and is part of an ongoing exhibition in Bratislava, Slovakia through Art in Embassies.
