"She Is Here"
Curated by Daricia Maar and Kristen Cahill
On view August 2020-February 2021

Atlanta Contemporary Art Center is pleased to announce the artists participating in the Studio Artist Program Retrospective Group Show. With a roster of 20 multigenerational, multicultural and multidisciplinary female artists - She Is Here intentionally defies existing norms for art institutions where recognition and inclusion of women is underwhelming. She Is Here fosters women working with women, and women supporting women.

The Artists were selected from alumni and existing participants from the Studio Artist Program (2001-2020) in sync with the organizational shift from Nexus to Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. The artists and art selection unfolded organically. Common themes blossom and intertwine. Each artist plants her seed in the collective garden, where impressions of identity, femininity, home, motherhood, mothering, domesticity, spirituality, ritual, body image, aging and interconnectedness reappear and overlap.
