Won’t Lovers Revolt Now | Curated by THE FUEL AND LUMBER COMPANY in partnership with AIR Serenbe

Review: “Won’t Lovers Revolt Now” at Whitespace offers timely but uneven critique of Trump-era nationalism

July 11,2018
By Logan Lockner

The tense days leading up to the opening of Won’t Lovers Revolt Now at Whitespace on June 22 seemed to amplify the urgency of the question in the group exhibition’s title. Curated by The Fuel and Lumber Company, the Birmingham-based curatorial project of artist couple Amy Pleasant and Pete Schulte, the show would have still offered potent critiques of nationalism and closed borders even if its opening hadn’t followed on the heels of two weeks of disturbing headlines describing migrant children being forcibly separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border.

“As a southern youth in the 1980ʼs, total enjoyment came from making, constructing, and cultivating resourceful ways of visualizing my thoughts.

After graduating high school, I had the opportunity to attend the Atlanta College of Art, and I moved to Atlanta from Charleston, SC in 1994. Seven months after graduating from ACA, I had my first solo exhibition at Gallery Domo in the spring of 1999, I received a reception from the public and critics alike.”

CC Calloway | Long Lasting Chew

Review: CC Calloway’s “Long Lasting Chew” at Whitespace

June 12,2018

In Rachel Kushner’s electrifying 2013 novel The Flamethrowers, about a young woman who falls in with a fictionalized crew of post-conceptualists in 1970s New York, an artist tells the unnamed protagonist, “You don’t have to immediately become an artist… You have the luxury of time. You’re young. Young people are doing something even when they’re doing nothing. A young woman is a conduit. All she has to do is exist.”

With her exhibition “Long Lasting Chew,” on view at Whitespace’s project space whitespec through this Saturday, June 16, Atlanta-based artist CC Calloway manages to both reject and embrace this proposition.

Matt Haffner’s photographs in his Harmonic Dysfunction exhibition (at Whitespace through June 16) confront a different, less distinguishable part of the South, the spaces on the margins of cities where the architecture is determined by the function of the services provided by auto body shops, liquor stores and other unromantic enterprises that are often visually identical in cities across America.
