Atlanta-based artist, Michi Meko will be presenting a new exhibition of work at the Galleries that opening on January 27. In this lecture Meko will discuss his practice which as a multidisciplinary artist, draws influence from rural southern culture and contemporary urban subcultures. The works act as navigation maps and movements to convey narratives based in the personal and historic. Mashing up iconography and remixing content to establish new hybridized identities, Meko endows ordinary and rejected objects with spiritual powers, alluding to conditions both physical and psychological.
Michi Meko was born in Alabama in 1974. Meko has exhibited widely throughout the Southeast, is represented by Alan Avery Contemporary in Atlanta, and has work in the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art.
