Join Flux Exchange visiting artist Alexandre Arrechea and ArtATL’s Architectural Contributor Michael Kahn for a walking tour of Downtown Atlanta.

Arrechea has been incorporating imagery of architecture in his sculpture and drawings for over two decades, both as a solo artist and in the Cuban artist collective Los Carpinteros. Kahn, an architect, lecturer, journalist, and native of Atlanta, writes and lectures on the confluence of urban planning and architectural history.

Together, the two will discuss the complex past, present, and future of Atlanta’s architecture, as represented in buildings both preserved and lost, and discuss how these intersections can inspire concepts in contemporary art and culture.
