GEORGIA

GEORGIA is a pop-up art space located in the alley behind 952 Mariposa Street in Denver's La Alma neighborhood. Housed in Sommer Browning’s one-and-a-quarter car garage, GEORGIA aims to blur space and purpose. To bring artists, musicians, writers, fabricators, and thinkers together. To bring them together in a garage. To bring them together in a garage for a short period of time. 


GEORGIA is pleased to feature Simulations, an exhibit of the work of Katie Caron. Caron uses ceramic, rubber, and a variety of reclaimed materials to build illusionary environments that engage the natural world, technology, biology, and human perception. Her forms gain an uncanny agency through the conversation between these concepts, surprising and even provoking the viewer. In addition to showing her mixed-media sculptural works, Caron will create a site specific installation for GEORGIA.


The opening night reception of Simulations will also feature the short films of Kelly Sears, an experimental animator who uses collaged imagery from historical archives and thrift-store cast offs to rebuild official or received American narratives.


Simulations will be on view one weekend only. 


November 17-19, 2017. 


All events are free and open to the public. For questions about accessibility contact GEORGIAartspace@gmail.com

Future Bodies

September 8, 9 & 10, 2017

GEORGIA is pleased to present its first exhibition: FUTURE BODIES, a collection of Joshua Ware’s large-scale collages. Ware’s collages combine absurd imagery indebted to Dada and Surrealism with color-field backgrounds that take cues from Bauhaus and De Stijl. By merging disparate artistic lineages, the works produce l'art du bricolage that promotes a pragmatic and inclusive approach to the creative process.  FUTURE BODIES will be on view one weekend only. 


Occurring simultaneously over the same weekend, Counterpath will show 952 Mariposa an exact replica of the garage before its conversion. The contents of the garage (boxes of books, broken air conditioners, cobwebbed exercise equipment, a car) will be installed at Counterpath, an already functioning gallery space which itself was formerly a garage.
