Gutstein Gallery 201 E. Broughton St. Savannah, GA
Savannah College of Art and Design presents Alter Ego, a group exhibition offering diverse approaches to the broad theme of the artist’s alter ego. The exhibition, featuring various artistic practices, follows a rich history of persona, but offer fresh approaches that critique or celebrate notions of celebrity, commodity culture, reality and fiction.
SCAD painting professor Vanessa Platacis presents a commissioned mural. The artist creates public murals that incorporate decorative elements referencing the traditions of painting and architectural ornament. Platacis formerly went by the alias PIXNIT and subsequently killed the persona through a public obituary and social media.
Alter Ego is curated by Ben Tollefson, assistant curator of SCAD exhibitions and Amanda York.
This exhibition is part of deFINE ART 2018, held Feb. 20–23 at SCAD locations in Savannah and Atlanta, Georgia. DeFINE ART is an annual program of exhibitions, lectures, performances and public events that highlights emerging and established artists and visionaries.
