Flux Exchange: Architectural Walking Tour
May 20, 2017 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am| Free
WITH ALEXANDRE ARRECHEA AND MICHAEL KAHN
Join Flux Exchange visiting artist Alexandre Arrechea and ArtATL’s architectural contributor Michael Kahn for a walking tour of Downtown Atlanta.
Arrechea has been incorporating imagery of architecture in his sculpture and drawings for over two decades, both as a solo artist and in the Cuban artist collective Los Carpinteros. Kahn, an architect, lecturer, journalist, and native of Atlanta, writes and lectures on the confluence of urban planning and architectural history.
Together, the two will discuss the complex past, present, and future of Atlanta’s architecture, as represented in buildings both preserved and lost, and discuss how these intersections can inspire concepts in contemporary art and culture.
Tour highlights include: the Atlanta Central Library, the Hurt Building, the Candler Building, the Ellis Hotel, the Healey Building, the Flatiron Building, the Olympia Building, the Marriott Marquis, and the Equitable Building. Tour begins and ends at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, 265 Peachtree Street NE. (Group will meet at the main Peachtree St. entrance.)
This program is free and open to the public.
