Abstraction: Envisioning a Different World

For this year’s concept exhibition APG is partnered with the Atlanta Contemporary to to push the boundaries of photographic vision, and exhibit photographs that explore the idea of what’s real.

Artists were encouraged to use the Atlanta Contemporary’s exhibition New Worlds: Georgia Women to Watch as a springboard to create work that moves beyond traditional ways of seeing photography.

The work in this exhibition creates abstraction through the use of color, form, composition, distortion, shadow, light, manipulated materials (montage or composite), and photo editing software. The exhibition is an opportunity for artists to envision a different world using their own unique photographic perspective.
