CRITIC’S PICK: Chip Moody: Open Swim, Atlanta Center For Photography - Chip Moody’s inaugural exhibition for the ACP depicts a dozen swimming pools in Atlanta public schools that were at one time segregated. The project conveys the complexities of race and public space in the city and the way those pools function in contemporary life. Best known for his black-and-white portraits and scenes of Black life, Moody is this year’s Emerging Artist Fellow at the Center, giving him access to professional development, personalized mentorship sessions and participation in the 2024 ACP Portfolio Reviews, as well as a $750 artist fee and “additional production support.” - Kevin Madigan

From the venue:

On view at the ACP Project Lab until August 24, 2024

Featuring photographs of 12 historically segregated City of Atlanta public pools, Open Swim is a new project by Chip Moody exploring the layered narratives of race and public space in our city.

Moody’s depiction focuses on the contemporary function of the pools as places of refuge for communities to gather, socialize, and affirm one another. Rather than unpacking these sites’ rich but fraught histories, Moody sheds new light on how increased access to shared spaces can foster generosity and deepen our experience of community.
