The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center is offering two special opportunities for artists.
On Saturday, July 16, from 4 to 6 p.m., Ute Zimmerman, the program manager at Artadia, will host an informational session on the application process for the 2011 Artadia Awards in Atlanta. To my knowledge, Artadia is the only organization that plugs its artists into a national network. For example, San Francisco Artadians are featured in the Contemporary’s exhibition (image below) that opens Friday night.
ACAC has also issued an open call to artists who live and work in Georgia to contribute to “Day Job: Georgia,” a show that will examine the artist’s relationship to the day job and investigate its effect on artistic practice.
“Day Job: Georgia” is based on an exhibition held at The Drawing Center in New York from last December to February. According to a press release, that show focused on “the ways in which the information, skills, ideas, working conditions or materials encountered on the job are a source of artistic influence.”
The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. August 1. For more information, see ACAC’s website.
