Weekend Arts Agenda: Mason Murer opens ... a lot of exhibits, actually September 25 2014


Here is everything, all at once: Mason Murer, in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography is dedicating a whole showcase to local photographers. Lucinda Bunnen will open one show, Lucinda’s World, while Margaret Hiden, Libby Rowe, and H. Jennings Sheffield will openFamily as the Vernacular. And of course Fay Gold curates Women in Focus' annual group show, also opening. And before I forget: Chris Burk, Rodger Brown, and Trappings by Jarrett Christian; plus Craig Hawkins, Molly Sawyer, Maggie Hasbrouck, Jill McGannon, Will Rafuse, Suzy Schultz, and Nancy Lloyd will also exhibit. With an opening reception from 6-9 p.m.

Everyone remembers Mi Casa, Your Casa, the site-specific installation that has served as a months-long nexus of performances, exhibitions, and community activation. It continues: the CORE Performance Company will debut Sue Schroeder's dance/performance a home is a home is a home, exploring exactly the themes you're thinking, at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Georgia State ensemble Bent Frequency had been scheduled to provide musical accompaniment, but have withdrawn "in solidarity with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra musicians."

The Movement Gallery of Art will open a new group exhibition entitled millennialon Friday and Saturday nights. The show sounds standard — "the work encapsulates the millennial movement and how the digital age has impacted the visual arts" — but there's little chance that it is, featuring work from artists including Morgan Cole, Chandler Galloway, Hayden John, Olivia Rado, Smitty, and others. The mediums vary; the focus on technological infusion does not. With an opening reception from 7-10 p.m., on Friday, and 6-10 p.m., on Saturday

The work of the Black Audio Film Collective — the 30-year-old group of diaspora British filmmakers who "seized the idea of 'blackness' as an identity marker as well as a claim to political visibility" — is coming to Georgia State for two weekends of screenings and discussion, exhibiting a total of 12 films. The event was organized by liquid blackness and will include BAFC co-founder David Lawson and historian Eddie Chambers. Here's the full schedule for both weekends. Remember this: work from the Diaspora shouldn't be seen in a vacuum, or sampled, and GSU's slate — it's free! — avoids both.

But Dorsey's next big screen role will be as the Rev. James...

Programming note: This is my last week on the ATLwood beat, y'all. It's been a wonderful 18 months; at this point, there are almost too many productions and their attendant celebrities to keep track of. I followed in the footsteps of the industrious, omnivorous Allison Keene. And now someone will follow me.
