Preview: ...After the Suburbs at Kiang GalleryWednesday January 19, 2011 10:55 am EST
After a month-long winter break, Kiang Gallery will open their gallery doors again this weekend for ...After the Suburbs, a promising group show curated by the always-busy Karen Tauches. Those familiar with Tauches' Paradise installation from last year will recognize some of the ideas that guide this show: "Unsustainable and overbuilt, we have witnessed the suburbs grow more complex and out of control. After an explosion of cookie-cutter development in the 20th century, it is time to reimagine their future as both urban and green spaces."
The show enlists mostly locals for this reimagining, including Meg Aubrey, Amandine Drouet, Sarah Hobbs, Sze Tsung Leong, Kemp Mooney, Shiela Pree Bright, Nancy Vandevender, Alex Rogers, Nat Slaughter, and Pandra Williams, though James Griffioen, Michelle Levine, and Travis Shaffer all contribute from outside the Georgia state line. You can check out a preview of some work from the show after the jump or head over to Kiang to read a short essay from Tauches and find out more details.
