Solo Exhibition Featuring the Work of Chakaia Booker at SCAD

ATLANTA, GA.- The SCAD exhibitions department presents "Sustain," a solo exhibition featuring the work of Chakaia Booker. “Sustain” pairs Booker’s signature abstract sculptures fashioned from found tires with a series of new photogravures the artist recently created at SCAD Atlanta. “Sustain” is organized to coincide with the annual National Black Arts Festival.

Highlighting her use of sustainable materials, these prints offer a rare view of the artist’s process as she ceremoniously forages the industrial landscape for sculptural materials. Combined with the expressive materiality of the rubber sculptures, the two series allude to physical and personal strength, racial identity and the human relationship to the environment.

Booker was one of two artists who worked with master printer and SCAD’s printmaking department chair Robert Brown, along with student assistants, to create original prints.

“’Sustain’ is a rare opportunity to showcase Booker's sculptures with another lesser-known but no less remarkable aspect of her oeuvre––her printmaking. SCAD is fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Booker to realize these photogravures. They enrich our reading of her work and offer an entree into her performative artistic process,” said SCAD Senior Curator Melissa Messina.

The exhibition will be on display at the ACA Gallery of SCAD, Woodruff Arts Center, 1280 Peachtree St., July 15-Aug. 29. The exhibition, reception and artist talk with Booker and Carrie Mae Weems are free and open to the public.
