Re-Placing Atlanta
The Atlanta Preservation Center
Featuring work by: John Dean, Jody Fausett, "Panorama" Ray Herbert, David Knox, Sheila Pree Bright, Marcia Vaitsman

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 5, to Fri, Nov 9 2012

Curated by Constance Lewis and Jerry Cullum, Re-Placing Atlanta encourages a closer look at what is historically woven into a contemporary landscape. New or recontextualized work by the artists presents a thoughtfully composed imagining of Atlanta to Atlanta. These artists approach the theme with diverse and distinctively individual aesthetics, materials, and points of view. Whether pursuing culturally and historically significant neighborhoods and landscapes or threatened pieces of Atlanta architecture, each uses the photographic medium as an invitation to contemplate layers of history in the vernacular environment through images that respond to local scenes and structures in which the past is hidden in plain sight.

The curators challenged these well-known photographers to address issues related to, but somewhat outside, their previous subject matter. Their new works investigate the traces of the past in the present—a past that includes the largely forgotten archives of the late Panorama Ray, whose panoramic photographs form a point of departure.

The exhibition, which reflects the Atlanta Preservation Center’s mission of promoting the preservation of Atlanta's historically and culturally significant sites through advocacy and education, is in APC’s Drawing Room Gallery in the 1856 Lemuel P. Grant Mansion.
