Residency: March 16–27, 2020
Exhibition: March 28–April 19, 2020
Organized by the High in collaboration with the international photographic cooperative Magnum, the Live Lab is a residency and related exhibition that will address contemporary life in Atlanta by involving the community in the realization of a new body of photographs. For the two-week-long “photographic jam session” (March 16–27, 2020), American photographer Carolyn Drake and South African artists Mikhael Subotzky and Lindokuhle Sobekwa will create individual projects about themes relevant to the city.
A studio or “lab” will be set up at the High as a base of operations for the artists. To make the creative process transparent, the active workspace will be open to the public at select times, offering visitors insight into the processes of developing, editing and sequencing the finished project.
The residency will result in a pop-up exhibition of the work produced at the High. Past Live Labs have been hosted in London, Paris, Moscow, Shenzhen, China and Kyoto, Japan. This will be the first Live Lab in the United States.
This exhibition is organized by the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, in collaboration with Magnum Photos.
