New Genre Landscape

Summer 2008

A (new) Genre Landscape is a display of contemporary art work in community parks throughout Atlanta. A total of twelve artists - and a few teams - were commissioned to do the work which will be on display at various times though the summer. Listen to the radio story.

According to Stuart Keeler, the curator, the goal of the project is to connect artists with Atlanta parks, with “not your typical ideas of public art”. Keeler says a (new) Genre Landscape is designed to create social connections and the viewer must want to engage with the art to complete the process.
