Destroy - Rebuild Mammal Gallery June 17th through July 7th

The goal of DESTROY/REBUILD is to bring together many different artists to destroy works of the past in order to create the materials for new work.

Phase 1:
Artwork will be DESTROYED, pulverized beyond recognition, and from the scraps of the wreckage, we will REBUILD.

What will we build? That is up to you to decide.

Phase 2:
We will host open gallery hours each week for artists and “nonartists” to come BUILD new artwork only using material generated from the DESTROYED art.

Pase 3:
The end result will be an entirely new show consisting of the collective work of all of those who participate.

>>>If you want to participate and have any questions or if you have any old artwork that you are ready to let go of in a really intense way, shoot us an email at info@mammalgallery.com

Mammal Gallery Presents: Maya Stein-Disappearing South

Aug 4th -27th

Opening Reception: Thursday, Aug 4 (7-11 pm)

An outsider perspective inspired by the developing landscape of the American South
About the Artist

An outsider perspective inspired by the developing landscape of the American South.

Maya Stein creates extended media paintings that investigate the urban landscape through quotidian language in architecture. Her creative process is driven by the venture of capturing a place with the premise that, even within globalization and standardization in America, it is still possible to find elements that are uniquely connected to a place, vernacular elements, that are a worthy subject to highlight and uncover. Since her move from New York to Atlanta, Maya’s focus has turned to suburban life style and driving culture as means to understand Atlanta as well as other similar environments across America.

Walker Keith JerniganRepurposed Aggression – Curated by Daria Filardo

July 2nd – 31st

Opening Reception: Saturday July 2 (7-11pm)

Walker Keith Jernigan - Repurposed Agression - Curated by Daria Filardo
Curator's Statement

Repurposed Aggression is a condition of urgency, where uncontrollable, difficult explosions happening inside find ways to come out as a form. This form is dangerous, on the edge of the abyss, yet contained, sublimated and perfect in its own way.

Repurposed Aggression is a long path. Showing its forms can be a frightening exposure. It can hurt but also liberates an awareness of what else runs through our veins, and lets it out.

The shift from a sports career to an artistic one is the spark that moved Walker Keith Jernigan. That shift is one of abandonment and surrender to art, giving the world the forms, disbanding a sense of anxious ownership thus letting them be real devices for everyone. Repurposed Aggression is love, cash, soccer balls, baseball bats, an arrow, ropes, lights, punching bag.

Love/d & Sex/ed

April 14th- May 31st

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 14th (7-10pm)

Love/d & Sex/ed is a meandering visual conversation touching on each issue within the broad spectrum of sex, gender, love, and intimacy. These issues range broadly in both negative and positive contexts, but connect to each other in a complicated and important web of influence, impact, and need, illustrating the challenges and triumphs our society faces when confronting these ideas. The work within the show will address these topics, create space for conversation and point towards action.
