The Artmore's Event Picks for June 2012

2012 deFINE ART Honoree Fred Wilson

“Life’s Link and Other Projects: A Talk by Fred Wilson, 2012 deFINE Art Honoree,” SCAD Atlanta.

The world’s renowned conceptual artist Fred Wilson is coming to SCAD, Atlanta on February 22, 2012. DeFINE ART 2012 will honor Fred Wilson for his work and influence on contemporary art. Wilson will discuss his overall practice and approach to both his museum installations as well as individual artworks.

Wilson’s installations and large-scale singular works are subjected around social justice of African Americans.   His approach is to examine, question, and deconstruct the traditional display of art and artifacts in museums.  With the use of new wall labels, sounds, lighting, and non-traditional pairings of objects, he leads viewers to recognize that changes in context create changes in meaning.

He will also touch on the process of producing his original exhibition with works from the Walter O. Evans Collection of African American Art at the SCAD Museum of Art.

 This event is free and open to the public! The Artmore Hotel is pleased to offer special rates to all traveling guests attending this event. For more information and availability, contact reservations (404) 201.7555 today!
