9/50 Summit in Atlanta
Representatives from Press Street will be in Atlanta June 20-22nd for the 9/50 Southeast Arts Presenters Summit. If you are in the area swing by the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and check us out!
Proximity does not always yield closeness: ACAC and co-organizers Seed Space (Nashville, TN) and Elsewhere (Greensboro, NC), have devised a three day weekend event called 9/50: A Southeast Arts Presenters Summit, in an attempt to bring Southeastern nonprofit and independent contemporary art presenters and publishers together under one roof to showcase rigor, excellence, ambition, and uniqueness in their local context, and of significance to the larger contemporary art field.
9/50 refers to the fact that nine of the fifty United States will be represented, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The summit will afford arts professionals and audiences a chance to gain access to an overview of the Southeastern region, and enjoy the opportunity to meet and mingle with regional colleagues, pursue curatorial and collaborative ventures, print and on-line publications, and unique initiatives.
Our own Bob Snead will be presenting Sunday, June 22nd, from 2-3:30 in the public panel- Does Regionalism Exist?
