Sisters Song: Awaken & Chroma: Red for Elevate

Thursday, October 13 through November 11, 2016


The City of Atlanta – Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs presents Sisters Song: Awaken & Chroma: Red for Elevate, a dual exhibition featuring Atlanta Women photographers and multi-disciplinary performance group Chroma.

Gallery 72 celebrates photography with an exhibition exploring, from a womanist perspective, the impact that migration development, and gentrification has had on the city’s inhabitants old and new. The exhibition will feature a varied host of Atlanta based women photographers from the many communities that call Atlanta home. In addition to this exhibition Elevate: Microcosm will present Crystal Monds and performances by Chroma, a queer-Black-woman-healer led project that blends art with ancestral healing on Oct. 14 and Oct 21. The hopes, fears, tensions and collaborations that grow out of the changing racial and cultural narratives of contemporary Atlanta will be the nexus of the presentation.
