We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it’s our job to invent something better. — Chuck Palahniuk, Choke (via stxxz)

Jessica Caldas & Aubrey Longley-Cook: 2013-2014 Office of Cultural Affairs Emerging Artists
The City of Atlanta - Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs Emerging Artist Award winners for 2014, Jessica Caldas and Aubrey Longley-Cook, present Two Houses an immersive show investigating interior and exterior views of family at Chastain Arts Center. The home is commonly perceived to be a safe space. By engaging various mediums, the artists examine experiences that break from this ideal. Through the repetition of these broken narratives, the fantasy of the home is unraveled and new perspectives of family are created.
March 17th - April 17th
Closing reception and award ceremony on Wednesday, April 16th, from 6:30-8:00pm.
Chastain Arts Center
