Elsewhere To Present At 9/50 Summit
[GREENSBORO, NC]â€”A team of curators from Elsewhere will present at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Centerâ€™s â€œ9/50 Southeast Presenters Summitâ€ this coming weekend.
This yearâ€™s 9/50 Summit was co-organized by the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Seed Space and Elsewhere. According to the organizers, the summit exists as an â€œattempt to bring Southeastern nonprofit and independent contemporary art presenters and publishers together under one roof to showcase rigor, excellence, ambition, and uniqueness in their local context.â€ Eighteen organizations from the nine represented southeastern states will be presenting, as well as keynote presenter Barry Blinderman from the Illinois State University College of Fine Arts.
Elsewhereâ€™s exhibit will present its Southern Constellations fellowship program. Now entering its second year, Southern Constellations is a National Endowment for the Arts funded initiative that builds an expanded network of experimental, interdisciplinary art practices to support collaboration across the region. During their residencies, fellowship artists create site-specific work using Elsewhereâ€™s extensive collection of materials and participate in events that develop experimental art practices across the region.
Presentations at the ACAC are free and open to the public, and will be held on Sat., June 21 from 11 a.m.â€“5 p.m. and Sun., June 22 from 12 p.m.â€“5 p.m at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center in Atlanta, GA. On Saturday, June 21 at 11am and 5pm, Elsewhere will host performances by Atlanta musicians Eric Fontaine and Majid Ariam of graphic scores created by Alabama based composer and musician Andrew Raffo Dewar who was a Southern Constellations Fellow in 2013.
