Art Party

SAVE THE DATE :: ART PARTY returns AUGUST 29, 2015

This past September, The Contemporary held the second annual ART PARTY with a site-specific installation curated by Joey Orr entitled Exquisite Exhibit: Parlour Games from the Studio Artist Program, which sought to engage new and established audiences with twenty-one artists from the last decade of the Studio Artist Program. Directly installed on seven gallery walls, Exquisite Exhibit allowed patrons to encounter one another, the walls of the galleries, and the participating artists through the dynamism of a Surrealistic parlour game. Along with the innovative exhibition, 1,000 of the most fashionable art patrons were in attendance, local restaurants provided specialty food and drinks, and the 14 artists participating in the Studio Artist Program opened their doors for exclusive access into their professional practices.

It is through the generous support of our Patrons, Hosts, Sponsors, and Attendees that we were able to present ART PARTY. Thank you for empowering The Contemporary to continue to be a leading presenter of contemporary art in Atlanta.
