The artcore journal series Installed are posts for the artcore (b)log that include written information provided by the institution, gallery, or artist’s website along with a selection of images taken by an artcore correspondent. The initiative is to provide readers with the photographer’s unique perspective of exhibitions, performances, and/or events in situ. The artcore (b)log is a platform for new series that are posted continuously, in addition to the biannual issues but do not necessarily reflect the current theme. If you are interested in participating as a correspondent for the Installed series on the artcore (b)log please contact us directly for more information.
Shara Hughes: Don’t Tell Anyone But…
at Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Atlanta, GA
Apr. 19 – June 15, 2013
Curated by Stuart Horodner
Her canvases slide easily between abstraction and representation, establishing stage-like spaces occupied by bodies and objects. Her paintings are influenced by European and American art traditions and tensions, and she reconciles them with her own pictorial voice, albeit one that gives a shout out to artists including Henri Matisse, David Hockney, Albert Oehlen, and Dana Schutz, to name a few. Like these predecessors, she is a restless maker, shifting scales and media, and maintaining a strong link to the domestic and popular culture. -The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center website
