New Work by Jill Frank
MOCA GA presents Jill Frank’s Working Artist Project exhibition. Frank's current body of work consists of large scale portraits of young people at social gatherings in the American South. While rooted in a documentary style, the photographs do not inform viewers about the rituals and realities of youth culture, but rather explore them as presentations of belonging and identity. Frank is based in Atlanta and teaches photography at Georgia State University.
The MOCA GA Working Artist Project (WAP) is an awards program to support established visual artists of merit who reside in the metropolitan Atlanta area. This initiative provides an unparalleled level of support for individual artists, expands the Museum’s mission, and promotes Atlanta as a city where artists can live, work, and thrive. Representing our city’s best and brightest, these artists are supported with an exhibition, promotion, a studio assistant, and a major stipend to create work over the course of the year. This program is supported in large by a grant from The Charles Loridans Foundation with additional funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
For context about the exhibition, please see: The informal as art: a conversation with photographer Jill Frank by Virginie Kippelen on ArtsAtl.
