Alumni from the Nexus Contemporary Art Center will take part in a panel discussion presented by Emory’s Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library and ArtsATL. The event is free and open to the public.

“Memorial Drive: Nexus Contemporary Art Center” will examine the history of the organization (now the Atlanta Contemporary) and its role in the city’s cultural development. Founded in 1973 as a grassroots photography cooperative, the Nexus Contemporary Art Center became one of the strongest and most influential alternative art spaces in the Southeast.

Panelists include:
-Michael Goodman, a founding member of the Nexus Photography Cooperative and first director of the Nexus Press;
-Mario Petrirena, studio program artist and member of the board of directors;
-Teresa Bramlette Reeves, former gallery director and curator for Nexus Contemporary Arts Center; and
-Louise Shaw, former executive director.

Cathy Fox, former executive editor of ArtsATL.com and former art critic at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, will provide the opening remarks.

The moderator will be Randy Gue, curator of modern political and historical collections at the Rose Library at Emory University. The Rose Library is home to the records of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Nexus Contemporary Art Center, and the Nexus Press.
