ACP Public Art – 2008

Updated: March. 12, 2020

Within Our Gates – McCallum/Tarry

The artist team of Bradley McCallum & Jacqueline Tarry have developed an important career around site-specific work using photographic media to highlight political and racial issues in America. They have been commissioned to create an original, temporary installation in Atlanta for ACP’s tenth festival, October 2008.

The video-based art project will be notable for its radical transformation of a dormant space in the historic Martin Luther King district of Atlanta. The 1906 water tower was originally part of the South East Atlantic Cotton Compress Warehouses (now Studioplex lofts), and has been granted entry to the National Register of Historic Places.

Drawing upon the rich film, television and radio broadcast archives of the civil rights collection of WSB, housed at the University of Georgia, McCallum and Tarry hope to create a public art project that will resonate beyond the site, leading citizens from all over to interact with, and learn from this work of art and to experience, in an unprecedented way, an impassioned social protest movement as it unfolded in the Old Fourth Ward, in Atlanta, the US, and throughout the world.

This event is free and open to the public. Presented with the HDDC. Project organizer: Lisa Kurzner.
