Contemporary Talks is a series that connects Atlanta audiences with some of the most consequential thinkers and doers in the world of art and culture. The speakers share thoughts about their past and present projects – what informs and motivates them, what challenges they face, and why it matters. In its third year, Contemporary Talks will delve into Afrofuturism, West Coast conceptual art, typography, industrial design, and the life of cities.

We are proud to announce that this year’s Contemporary Talks series is sponsored by Possible Futures.
