Description

Artist Talk: Saturday, August 20 at 2 p.m.

Atlanta based artists William Downs and Michael Reese met as students at the Atlanta College of Art in 1992. Their relationship inspired this exhibition, which explores the idea of the call-and-response pattern in human communication, whereby there is "spontaneous verbal and non-verbal interaction between speaker and listener in which all of the statements (calls) are punctuated by expressions (responses) from the listener." In this case, various types of music inspired Downs and Reese, but in particular, jazz was most influential.
