"Streaming Spirits: New Prints by Valerie Hammond and Kiki Smith"
Jan. 07 – Mar. 29, 2013
Gallery 1600 | SCAD Atlanta, 1600 Peachtree St., Atlanta, Ga.
"Streaming Spirits" is an exhibition of new prints made at SCAD Atlanta by acclaimed artists Valerie Hammond and Kiki Smith. "Streaming Spirits" was conceived and organized by scholar and guest curator Crista Cloutier.
Taking inspiration from the 19th-century genre of spirit photography, these hauntingly beautiful works on paper use a variety of printmaking techniques as the medium through which to capture manifestations of the self - what master printer and SCAD Atlanta Printmaking Chair Robert Brown describes as "loose interpretations of the meta-real."
