Meredith Kooi: Pitchtree, Peachtree, and Nickel Bottom, too

July 9 to August 6

Closing reception: Saturday, August 6

Pitchtree, Peachtree, Nickel Bottom, too is a site-specific project that responds to the natural, social, cultural, and political histories of the area surrounding {Poem 88} - the Zonolite district along the South Fork of Peachtree Creek in Atlanta. The evolution of Peachtree Creek has been significant to Atlanta’s development, and this project seeks to dig into these histories through research, performance, audio explorations, and radio broadcast experimentations to illuminate the various communities and infrastructures that have inhabited the area.

Pitchtree, Peachtree, Nickel Bottom, too is going to be structured as an experimental process-based research residency wherein Kooi will use {Poem 88} as a studio, gallery, and event space. There will be performances, workshops, lectures, drinks, cute people, smart ones too, and Meredith making things in the gallery, open to the public!

Sponsors include The Stuart A Rose Manuscript, Archive and Rare Book Library, Emory University, Zonolite Road Properties, Marianne Lambert, and the Southfork Conservancy.
