Dashboard Co-op has announced four new artists it will be working with in 2015, all of whom live in Atlanta. Michael Oliveri, Kirstin Mitchell (a.k.a. Kiki Blood), Branden Collins and Erik Thurmond were selected from over 100 submissions from across the country.
Dashboard has pared down the number of artists it is working with this coming year and focused on Atlanta artists as part of its effort to promote local artists in other cities. Previously, the organization selected up to 10 artists from Atlanta, New Orleans, and New York, who were featured in curated exhibitions at various locations in Atlanta.
Works by the 2015 Dash artists will be featured in a group exhibition this spring in New Orleans, and within the next two years Dashboard will present a solo show by each artist in a city of their choosing.
In the meantime, Dash will continue its year-long programming in several spaces at North Avenue and Spring Street, with upcoming projects by the performance collective Fly On a Wall, Johnny Drago, and Stephanie Pharr & Orion Cook.
