    Advocacy is always a hot topic in the Atlanta art scene, and the High Museum has long been criticized as a chilly ivory tower disinterested in emerging local work. As such, the exhibition Drawing Inside the Perimeter (on view until Sept. 22), which features works on paper by more than 40 Atlanta artists acquired by High curator Michael Rooks and collector Marianne Lambert, is the most significant show of support in recent memory. Wall drawings by artists HENSE and Rocio Rodriguez also make it one of the more dynamic exhibitions curated by the High. At a time when Atlanta's gallery scene is reinventing itself, the High's decision to highlight and invest in the careers of these artists is commendable. less...

    CINEMA REMIXED AND RELOADED at the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art did pretty much everything right. The massive, two-part exhibit brought together a frequently overlooked set of artists – black women working in film, video and other time-based media – and finally offered the perspective and critical analysis that's been due since about the early '80s. In a curatorial tour de force, director Andrea Barnwell Brownlee and Valerie Cassell Oliver (of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston) brought together Wangechi Mutu, Lorna Simpson, Xaviera Simmons and two dozen other artists who'd never shown together before. Excellently installed and smartly presented, Cinema Remixed was a show of national importance, and we're glad we had it in our own back yard. less...

    The explosively hued MORRIS LOUIS NOW: AN AMERICAN MASTER REVISITED was a memorable celebration of color and size at the High Museum. The retrospective was a welcome shout-out to old-school painting, featuring wall-sized “stained” canvases from the 1950s and early ’60s. Though the High was more inclined to promote its continuing Louvre exhibitions, the Morris Louis show proved there was room for everyone in the new and much-improved museum. Both vibrant and oddly soothing, the impressive paintings allowed modern and contemporary art curator Jeffrey Grove to explore an essential American artist. less...

    ORIGIN: ANDREW ROSS INSTALLATIONS was the breathtaking solo show featuring former Atlanta artist Ross’ meditation on the fragile history of humankind. It delivered the conceptual goods and had visual impact to burn. By coupling Ross’ work with a show of the local art collaborative Golden Blizzard’s acid-trip drawings, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia proved it could bring it when it came to smart, happening conceptual art. less...
