Following its hugely successful return last fall, ART PARTY will once again burst with excitement in 2014. Hosted by Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (The Contemporary), ART PARTY is a multi-media event coinciding with the opening of Exquisite Exhibit: Parlour Games from the Studio Artist Program. The night will include titillating entertainment, unique food and drink experiences, and a chance to enjoy open studios with 14 current Studio Artists.
Curator Joey Orr presents /Exquisite Exhibit: Parlour Games from the Studio Artist Program/ opening in conjunction with ART PARTY, and on view through October 11. Orr has invited 21 artists from the last decade of The Contemporary’s Studio Artist Program—some of whom had studios years ago and some of whom have just recently moved in—to collaborate on seven unique “exquisite corpse” collaborative artworks. The “exquisite corpse” was a parlour game taken up by the Surrealists in which three artists collaborated on a portrait or drawing without being aware of what came before or after their respective contributions.
In addition to the gallery exhibition, guests will enjoy ART PARTY fare from Article 14, Bad Dog Taqueria, Campagnolo Restaurant + Bar, Dennis Dean Catering, Eclipse di Luna, HENRY’S Midtown Tavern and Sun in My Belly. Mixologists from The Lawrence and Top Flr will stir things up in the VIP Pavilion along with Chef Tyler Williams who will present two culinary performances. Sounds provided by El Prez, Trey West, and Santiago.
