Celebrating Georgia Artists of Hispanic/Latinx Origin Series

Sep 5, 2020 - Oct 31, 2020
11pm - 5pm

Prior to the Covid 19 virus, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) in partnership with the Latin American Association organized the exhibition Celebrating Georgia Artists of Hispanic/Latinx Origin to spotlight significant contributions to contemporary art by 37 talented Georgia artists. MOCA GA is committed to showcasing these artists within the physical gallery space.  We are currently working on a plan to feature 3-4 consecutive exhibitions in our entrance gallery.  More information will be added to the website as plans move forward.

We are thrilled to have had approximately 650 artworks submitted by 160 artists from 51 Georgia cities and towns across 27 Georgia counties. While we remain closed, please find below links to images and artists’ information for this exhibition so that you may enjoy this exhibition remotely until the current health crisis subsides.

Cuban-born, Atlanta artist Alexi Torres, in conjunction with MOCA GA Director Annette Cone-Skelton had the difficult task of jurying this highly competitive call.  Each juror diligently examined all entries and carefully selected artists to best represent the diversity and expertise inherent in this community.

El artista Alexi Torres, nacido en Cuba, junto con la directora de MOCA GA, Annette Cone-Skelton, tuvieron la difícil tarea de juzgar esta llamada altamente competitiva.
