The 32 Annual Southern Festival of Books — Thursday, October 1 to Sunday, October 11, various times
Presented by Humanities of Tennessee, this annual festival of books brings together authors and readers from across the state and surrounding region, with over 100 authors, events, and lectures streaming online and archived for later viewing on YouTube.
In this presentation spanning over twenty years worth of video work, UGA’s Dodd Galleries showcases fluid, essayistic videos by artist Tony Cokes, whose work covers topics including capitalism, Blackness, and wars for profit and power.
Features work by Hamlett Dobbins, Lynne Marinelli Ghenov, Caroline Kent, Juan Logan, Alex Paik, and Esmé Thompson, Constellations explores how six artists use abstraction as a navigational tool. The exhibition remains on view through November 25.
Former MoMA educator George Benson leads a virtual tour through the museum’s collection of works by queer artists including Keith Haring, Nan Goldin, and Glenn Ligon. Link provided upon registration. $10.
7×7 Stavanger—a newly-imagined, socially-distanced edition of Rhizome’s longstanding platform pairing visionaries from the fields of art and technology—charges participants with creating new projects through one-on-one collaborations over a short period of time. The online-only conference program will later take physical form as a first-ever Seven-on-Seven exhibition, featuring selected works from the program past and present and scheduled to open at Kunsthall Stavanger in the Spring of 2021.
London’s Treadwell Books and Modern Films host a screening of Beyond the Visible, a documentary about the painter Hilma af Klint, followed by a Q&A with director Halina Dyrschka and Christina Oakley Harrington. The film is available to download and view at home through October 9 ($11), and a free Zoom link to the Q&A is provided upon registration.
