The Athens Institute for Contemporary Art (ATHICA) is pleased to present I Swear I Saw This: the line as witness, a multi-faceted group exhibition curated by Dodd Assistant Professor Mike Calway-Fagen. The installation includes sinuous sculptural works, drawings, and writing that examine the wandering, witnessing, and becoming-the-other that take place when one writes, sculpts or draws. Each contribution focuses on line, as form traces form, translating perception to representation and back again. The artists make their world and the world makes them back.
Opening reception is Saturday, February 11th from 6-9:00 pm and will include a poetry reading by participating writer, Jacob Sunderlin.
On the evening of March 16th there will be a panel discussion on art as a tool for witnessing with exhibition curator Mike Calway-Fagen and the participating artists. The exhibition will be on view from February 11th–March 5th, 2017.
Closing night events on March 5th will also include a group poetry reading.
