Alec Soth: 'Georgia Dispatch'

Gallery 1600

Atlanta, GA

SCAD Atlanta, 1600 Peachtree St.

In Summer 2014, the SCAD Museum of Art sponsored "Georgia Dispatch", the seventh and final project of Alec Soth’s ongoing "Dispatch" series (2011-2014) during a two-week, 2,400-mile excursion through rural and urban Georgia. SCAD is delighted to present the Southeast premiere of these new works during Atlanta Celebrates Photography. 

The "Dispatch" series began in 2011 when Soth and writer Brad Zellar journeyed across Ohio masquerading as small-town newspaper beat reporters, covering day-to-day happenings along their trek. The exhibition will feature a selection of Soth’s documentary photography from the "Georgia Dispatch" series, creating a time-lapse portrait of the region.

This exhibition marks the conclusion of Soth and Zellar’s "Little Brown Mushroom (LBM) Dispatch" and is curated by Aaron Levi Garvey, SCAD assistant curator of exhibitions.

Reception: Thursday, Oct. 22, 6-8 p.m.

The exhibition is free and open to the public.
