  • Gallery Show: Joseph Bigley's "Consequentialism" 12:00 pm
    Location:
    WonderRoot, 982 Memorial Drive Southeast, Atlanta, GA, United States
    Description:
    WonderRoot is proud to present Consequentialism, Mixed Media Works by Joseph Bigley at WonderRoot. The exhibition runs from April 3 - June 30, 2014. The gallery opening will be held on Thursday, April 3 from 6-8pm.

    Joseph Bigley’s exhibition consists of mixed media sculptural works that involve both appropriated objects and hand made elements. The intention of these works are to reflect on various aspects of societal concerns. Some issues Bigley’s work touches on include energy consumption and its relationship with environmental effects, the media in war time, consumerism, among others. Tapping into the cultural significance of mass produced objects and materiality; these works are intended to encourage the viewer to consider social issues on their own terms while avoiding being overly dogmatic. WonderRoot’s Arts Center Manger Jess Bernhart adds “Bigley's WonderRoot show will challenge the ways we perceive and interact with the world; his work asks us to question the systems and structures in which we exist, and on which we've come to rely.”

    Joseph Bigley is a native of North Carolina. In 2008 he received his MFA in Sculpture from Alfred University in upstate New York. Bigley has lived and exhibited in Europe and the work has been shown across the United States. His work spans a range of subject matters, typically focused on some form of social commentary and as a result takes on a number of forms, materials and manners of display. Currently he is a full-time lecturer of art at Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C.

    Description:
    WonderRoot, in partnership with Georgia Equality, Charis Books & More, TILTT and JustUsATL invites you to participate in Deconstructing Binaries, a community-based public art project that will explore and challenge binary representations of gender identity on public restroom signage.

    On Wednesday, April, 23rd, 2014 at 7:30pm at Charis Books (1189 Euclid Ave. NE Atlanta, GA 30307), we will host an open conversation dedicated to better understanding the multiplicity of gender identities and how people with various identities experience and use public bathrooms. Encouraged by our understanding that the arts are a transcendent language for communication and social change, among those present will be five professional visual artists. Each artist will be tasked with absorbing the thoughts and opinions of community members and creating restroom signage that supports a diversity of gender identities. Upon completion, these signs will be distributed throughout Atlanta with the intent of raising awareness that gender inclusivity is a form of social justice for all.

    We’d love to include your voice in this conversation. This event is free and open to all. A moderator will facilitate dialogue to ensure that the conversation is kept supportive and productive. RSVP to confirm your attendance here:
