Marina Abramović
SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Marina Abramović

Exhibition: Tue, Oct 4, to Tue, Nov 1 2011

The Marina Abramović exhibition features three videos and an iconic series of photos that span the time from her first performance to her most recent works. This intimate exhibition chronicles the evolution of her performances: from her extremely physical early work to her more recent work exploring immateriality and the spiritual. Together the works showcase Abramović’s role as a pioneer in the use of performance as a visual art form.

Biography:
Marina Abramović attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. She pioneered the use of performance as a visual art form. Abramović presented her work at institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York, 2010; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 2004; State Historical Museum, Moscow, Russia, 2004; Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto, Japan, 2004; and Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France, 1990. She received an Honorary Doctorate from The Art Institute of Chicago in 2004 and earned the 2005-06 Best Exhibition of Time-Based Art award by the Association of Art Critics. Abramović won the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale.

WORD UP!
Wing & A Prayer Studio
Featuring work by: Corinne Adams

Studio Open House: Thu, Oct 20, to Sat, Oct 22 2011

I've been attracted to words and typography since my first job as a newspaper reporter. Years later, I ponder their power ("blood"), their mystery ("grace"), their humor ("critter"), their cultural buzz ("dude"), their indefinite nature ("truth"), their graphic beauty ("lollipop") and their general ability to clarify and confound.

So I am dedicating my studio to the WORD. I'm photographing words in the landscape...creating new abstract imagery from letters and word shapes...and inviting you to participate by placing YOUR WORDS on my studio walls. I wonder what we will uncover. What will make us laugh? Will we see things differently? Will we have fun? How does this wordplay make us feel? Let's find out.

(Traditionally, in the world of hip-hop, the word "up" succeeds the word "word." This combination of what seems like two unrelated words is a form of affirmation or enthusiasm that says, "Yeah, that's right!")

The Dog Park Photographs
The Studio of Meg Dreyer
Featuring work by: Meg Dreyer

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 20, to Sun, Nov 6 2011

The concept of any dog park begins as a meeting ground where people come together to socialize and exercise their dogs. In their attentions to their animals, dog owners themselves are socialized and shaped in turn. These images of people and their dogs reflect the often fierce connection that is formed between humans and animals, offering visual narratives of relationships and a collective portrait of a community.
