Exhibition: The Past Is Never Dead: Kristin Casaletto

"The Past Is Never Dead: Kristin Casaletto" shows prints by the contemporary Georgia-based artist. Casaletto’s work addresses issues of history and how it is interpreted as well as questions related to identity and race. A relative newcomer to the South, she approaches its complex history from the perspective of an outsider without marginalizing its culture.

The title of the exhibition comes from William Faulkner’s famous statement “The past is never dead. It's not even past.” Casaletto similarly focuses on the importance and influence of history in shaping present mindsets.

Exhibition: “Advanced and Irascible”

The "Advanced and Irascible" exhibition showcases Jeanne and Carroll Berry’s efforts to gather one work by each of the so-called “Irascible” painters of abstract expressionism. The Irascibles earned their nickname after sending a signed, open letter to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to protest the lack of what they called “advanced” art in its exhibition of contemporary artists in 1950.

Exhibition: “Artists of the New York School”

This exhibition features works from the collection of the Georgia Museum of Art and several private collections. Containing paintings, sculptures and works on paper, the show highlights artistic trends of the “New York School,” or artists who were active in New York City in the 1950s and 1960s and primarily worked in abstraction. Works by female artists such as Louise Nevelson, Michael (Corrine) West, Helen Frankenthaler and Anne Ryan are included, along with works by artists Robert Goodnough, James Brooks, Frank Stella, Philip Guston and Gerome Kamroski.

Closing Reception: “Storytelling: The Georgia Review’s 70th Anniversary Art Retrospective"

Award-winning poet Jericho Brown will read work at the closing reception for the Georgia Review's "Storytelling" exhibition. Light refreshments will be served, and the exhibition will be open for viewing. This event is sponsored in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
