Alchemy | ART PARTY

It's that time of year again - only 2023 marks our 50th Anniversary! Join us for our annual fundraiser - this year looking a little different - the night will transform the campus with programming, present you with special performances, and of course, Open Studios with our artists in the Studio Artist Program.

The Night's Happenings

Join us for an amazing evening that underwrites Atlanta Contemporary's vision to remain free admission, every day. Mix, mingle, move around and enjoy a specialty cocktail provided by esteemed mixologists or by one of our generous sponsors.

Atlanta Contemporary's VIP "Toast" Hour will raise a glass to the road paved by artists, curators, donors, visitors, and staff that drove the defining vision that is instilled in Atlanta Contemporary today. After the VIP Hour, you are invited to continue the night – mirrored after bygone years – venture down the rabbit holes with new installations, music performances, surprise activations, and Open Studios!

All proceeds from the night will establish a 50th Anniversary Endowment Fund to support the next 50 years of innovation, collaboration, and change-making at Atlanta Contemporary.

Artists. Community. Collect. Support.

Meander through the campus and explore activations in the main galleries. Before you venture out, be sure to check out our SHOP, featuring curated artist-made goods and Nexus Press books.

As you step outside, venture into any and every studio - peruse, learn, inquire, and collect - supporting our acclaimed artists participating in the Studio Artist Program.

About the organizer

A community that offers ever-expanding support for the creation and appreciation of contemporary art.

Founded in 1973 as Nexus, a grassroots artists’ cooperative, Atlanta Contemporary has since become one of the southeast’s leading contemporary art centers. We play a vital role in Atlanta’s cultural landscape by presenting over 100 consequential artists from the local, national, and international art scenes through our various exhibition and project spaces each year. We are one of the few local art organizations that commission new works, paying particular attention to artists of note who have not had a significant exhibition in the Southeast. We organize over 100 diverse educational programs annually including Contemporary Kids, Contemporary Cocktails, Contemporary Talks, Movement Love and more! Atlanta Contemporary provides on-site subsidized studio space to working artists through the Studio Artist Program, removing cost as a barrier to the creative process.
