Walking into Neda Abghari’s home is not unlike walking into a flea market booth. The walls are covered in local artwork, empty antique frames, and several kitschy Christ and Last Supper portraits. Every room boasts ample seating from a number of antique couches that the Atlanta native and Iranian first generation American, Abghari has been [...]
PATRIARCHS|MATRIARCHS, the latest offering at Twin Kittens, marks the Atlanta solo debut of Georgia-born, New York-based artist Dale Inglett. While Inglett’s choice of materials ranges from oil, gouache, and oxides to polypropylene paper and video, each of his spectral images are gleaned from a unified source: vintage family photographs, taken as the 19th century was [...]

Dana Schutz burst onto the New York scene in 2002 with her brightly colored canvases in which malformed denizens act out strange scenes of violence, self-mutilation, and self-contemplation with an almost child-like innocence. Schutz was in Atlanta for the opening of Drawings & Prints, her exhibition at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (ACAC), and was [...]
There is reason to note that many of the works in Wendy Given’s Turn Your Back to the Forest, Your Front to Me at Whitespace made their debut a few months earlier in a show titled How to Explain Magic to a Dead Rabbit at this ex-Atlanta artist’s Portland gallery. The title of that exhibition, [...]
