Thursday, June 3, 6-7 p.m.
ACA Gallery of SCAD, Woodruff Arts Center
1280 Peachtree St., Atlanta, Georgia
SCAD Senior Curator Melissa Messina will lead a curatorial walk-through of "The Rules of Play," the first solo show in the Southeast by Cuban-born artist Alexandre Arrechea. The exhibition, on display in the ACA Gallery of SCAD, showcases the artist’s prolific interdisciplinary practice, featuring recent drawings, sculpture and video. Messina will discuss how the artist uses references from architecture, design, games and sport in his meticulously crafted pieces to convey complex, thought-provoking and clever observations on the constructs of power in our ever-globalizing society.
Lecture is free and open to the public. Held in conjunction with Modern Atlanta. Modern Atlanta
is a weeklong citywide program which focuses on design excellence in many areas of life: architecture, communication arts, fashion, interior design, visual arts and social responsibility. MA10 ranges from an opening night reception to a multi-layered fundraiser party for CARE, along with lectures, unique activities and visual art experiences at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. Again this year, June 5-6, MA10 presents a tour of selected modern homes throughout Atlanta.
