Michi Meko in Oneness That Is, Too: Temporary Studios x Art Papers, Atlanta, GA
Art Papers is teaming up with Temporary Studios to present an exhibition curated by Art Papers editor + artistic director Sarah Higgins alongside open studios featuring some of Atlanta’s premier artists: Scott Ingram, Fredrik Brauer, Antonio Darden, Jill Frank, Michi Meko, Michael Reese, Brandon Sadler, Ellex Swavoni and Mark Wentzel. Temporary Exhibitions will launch its gallery program with Oneness That Is, Too, an exhibition curated by Art Papers editor + artistic director Sarah Higgins.
Oneness That Is, Too [September 29–October 22, 2022] explores ideas of the allegorical beyond: nature, wilderness, cosmos as metaphor for an internal or spiritual journey. Featuring artists Michi Meko, Elizabeth Porcel, Hasani Sahlehe, and Sergio Suarez, alongside animal participants courtesy of the Fruit Feeder at Canopy Lodge, and microbial participants courtesy of Julia Skinner and Root Kitchens, the exhibition includes works that address and dissolve binary divisions between interior/exterior, human/animal, culture/nature. Together, these works and cross-species collaborations propose the disintegration of such barriers by acknowledging that the mythological other is a potent reflection that mirrors the self—we look outward to the unknowable in order to locate, and perhaps understand, our internal wilds.
