2022 - 2025
A multi-project series exploring our relationship with water
FLOW is a multi-year series designed to explore Atlanta’s history with water, how it has shaped our city and the potential it holds for our future. FLOW will engage issues of conservation, equity, and urban design through installations and performances. Projects will be placed along creeks and watersheds, over buried waterways, and at other sites reconnecting us with nature and each other.
FLOW was launched in the fall of 2022 with Rachel Parish’s Emergence which built monuments to four springheads that are buried beneath downtown Atlanta. Upcoming projects confirmed to date include:
- Ghost Pools, a multi-media installation by Hannah Palmer exploring Atlanta’s history with public swimming by creating temporary memorials to two pools in East Point that closed rather than integrated
- An installation by Gyun Hur exploring the role of water in cultural and spiritual rituals
- Jonathon Keats’s Atlanta River Time unfolding as a series of installations and events encouraging audiences to establish a rhythm, individually and collectively, of coming back to the water
- Braiding Time, Memory and Water, by Core Dance, a performative collaboration with Keats’s Atlanta River Time
