The Abandoned Mansion - Photographs and Text
ECIT Gallery, Level 2
Featuring work by: Brian McGrath Davis

Exhibition: Mon, Sep 19, to Fri, Jan 6 2012

Beginning in September 2011, Emory Libraries will feature The Abandoned Mansion, an exhibition of images from Atlanta-based documentary photographer and scholar Brian McGrath Davis.

The place that is now Emory University’s Briarcliff Campus has served at least four different institutional purposes in the past century. From aristocratic estate of Asa Candler, Jr. (son of the founder of The Coca-Cola Company), to out-patient addiction recovery center, to mental health institute, and now university space, the 42-acre campus has served a variety of functions and meanings to the Atlanta and Druid Hills community. This set of large format photographs studies the first of these historical strata, the 1920s mansion of Asa Candler, Jr., which has been abandoned to desuetude and boarded-up since the late 90s.

Davis is a PhD candidate in the Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts at Emory University. The subject of his research is photographic theory, life writing, memory, and place studies as these fields intersect in what remains and what has been repurposed at the Briarcliff Campus.

Library Hours vary throughout the academic year. Please call 404-727-6868 for current visitor hours.
