Sarah Emerson is an artist who lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. Her paintings and installations present viewers with highly stylized versions of nature that combine geometric patterns and mythic archetypes to examine contemporary landscape. Are we the Monsters? is planned as a series of commissioned murals and large-scale drawings that address the dichotomy of ruin and rebirth, destruction and creation.
Interstate Love Song is the first solo museum exhibition of the work of Cambridge, Massachusetts based Tomashi Jackson. Jackson's richly textural mixed media paintings and videos explore the procession of color and the value of human life in public space, blending together histories of abstraction with vicinity-specific research.
Christian Camacho-Light and Alexis Wilkinson will realize the first exhibition selected through the ZMA’s Emerging Curators Initiative. The Way of All Flesh considers the body as both place and interface, as a site of negotiation and as a surface that power reads and inscribes. Included works shift between considerations of flesh and skin as biological matter and as historical matter.
Good Looks presents a selection of portraits from the ZMA Permanent Collection paired with paintings by local and regional artists.
This exhibition will present a survey of artist interventions and appropriations of video game aesthetics, logic, and culture with a specific emphasis on critiques of personal or collective agency. From early interventions on gaming software and graphics to meta-critiques of gaming culture staged within actual game-space, Play the Game will present a concise overview of intersections between contemporary art and video games.
