February 11th featured artist:
Iman Person is an interdisciplinary artist working in Atlanta, Georgia. Her work engages with the dichotomies of identity and magical consciousness carried out through the ethereal lens of nature. Person embeds qualities of the feminine, memory and ritual through drawing, installation, and performance in order to mend the rational and mystical bodies. By inciting exploration of these forgotten spaces, and by creating new narratives around the potentials of the physical form, Person believes a resurrection of the contemporary divine-body can be made and in turn positively affect our new synthetic landscape and concepts of nature.
In 2010 she received her B.F.A from Georgia State University and has become a fixture both in exhibition spheres and public art arenas. In 2012, she was included in Barbara Archer Gallery's, "Talent Loves Company", and named one of the 30 most influential artists in Atlanta. She is a member of the Atlanta based collective, Dashboard Co-Op, is a 2011 Hambidge fellow and is 2013-2014 Walthall fellow.
Atlanta Contempoary will provide free coffee from our sponsor Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters- Atlanta. We recommend bringing a mat, water bottle and anything additional that will make you feel comfortable during your practice.
