We here at BURNAWAY.org like to think of the To Do List as one of the things that can fill the voids in your life, or at least boring evenings at home. This week is no exception. Were you too busy to catch this week’s artist talks and last month’s shows? Gotcha covered. Feeling the [...]

10/29/09 Dorothy O'Connor's Tableau Vivant
To say that Dorothy O’Connor is a photographer is an understatement. O’Connor’s recent one-night tableau vivant at her studio in Southwest Atlanta proved that additional titles are in order: costume designer, set builder, collector, and maybe even “imagineer” (but without the Disney undertones). Much in the same vein as other photography greats (Cindy Sherman, Jeff [...]
10/28/09 Bread in the Sky waxes "full retard"
Two years ago, Hollis Hildebrand-Mills was making pleasant yet sophisticated abstractions inspired by themes of apocalypse. Her latest endeavor currently on view at Eyedrum comprises a dozen small collages and a bizzaro 16-minute animation, Bread in the Sky, starring a paper-cutout loaf of wheat bread. I watched the video twice, once by my lonesome and [...]
Art House Co-op announced early this month that they will be leaving Atlanta to throw down new roots in Brooklyn, New York. Read more in their official farewell letter: “For the past three years, Art House has resided in Atlanta, Georgia. We have grown to love it here and love the people around us. This [...]
Art history graduate student Nicole Jordan offers some answers to this question in her blog When Art History Goes Bad. A few of her beefs: Damien Hirst’s butterfly wing-covered bicycle, the dizzying stripes of Sienese Romanesque architecture, and Fragonard’s painting skills.
10/23/09 To Do List
Between film screenings, artist lectures, an architecture fair, and a tribute to the Mexican Dia de los Muertos in the works, there’s still plenty to see and do in the week ahead.
10/23/09 Photo Tour: Infinity at MINT Gallery
Photographer and curator Jason Travis uses the words “cornucopia” and “eclectic” to describe Infinity, the group exhibit currently on view at MINT Gallery. Although the idea was simply to showcase some of Travis’ favorite local photographers, the presentation was surprisingly coherent despite the wild range of styles and sizes contributed by nearly 20 artists. It [...]
10/22/09 Dear readers,
We apologize for our recent lapse in service. BURNAWAY.org achieved more visitors this month than we’ve had in the history of our publication. While we’re proud of our success, we regret that the increased traffic stressed our server to the limit and caused it to shut down over the weekend. We’ve since upgraded our hardware, [...]
We sat down with Radcliffe Bailey at his Atlanta studio to discuss his current mixed-media exhibit at Solomon Projects, Looking for Light, Traveling at Night. The drawings and sculptures on view were created in the wake of a special guest artist program at the Glass Pavilion of the Toledo Museum of Art as well as [...]
10/16/09 To Do List
Don’t worry. If you’re not interested in seeing more photography, there’s still plenty of artwork in other media on view this weekend. (Take for instance the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit.) But if you are one of those camera-obsessed maniacs, prepare yourself for a total system shock.
I’ve only met a handful of artists who are recipients of the Guggenheim Fellowship. Although I’m sure a broader survey will turn up a few sour apples, my experience so far paints them as a remarkably articulate and passionate lot. Like the others, Bill Daniel is a true fan of his own work. As he [...]
This Saturday, October 17, the Westside Arts District Art Walk will feature several events sponsored by Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Events will take place from 11AM to 5PM. Below you’ll find a list of highlights that piqued our interest:
Today’s post features the gloATL performance of Pour, an electrifying multi-part street production created by Lauri Stallings specifically for Le Flash.
Parking the wrong way on McDonald Street in Taco Town for a few minutes, I felt compelled to get out of my car to photograph a funny little piece of renegade public art. I was sure such unofficial signage would soon disappear. In a hurry, I turned around and a man confronted me in his [...]
