Exhibition: September 9 – October 15, 2011
Artist Talk: Thursday, October 13 | 6:30 PM
Join us for an artist talk with Matt Haffner tonight at 6:30 PM. He will discuss his current exhibition at whitespace, “Just Across the Tracks.” The show consists of a series of photograph portraits, sound recordings, collage works on paper, and a rotating diorama viewed through a camera obscura. All of the pieces depict life in the space between the city and the suburbs with references to Haffner’s personal experiences.
Matt Haffner currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia with his family. In addition to working on his art, Haffner is an Assistant Professor of Photography in the art department at Kennesaw State University. He was originally drawn to street art, since he enjoyed the danger, the giddiness of getting away with something, and the ability to create work on a large scale. He has since moved away from street art, but he still uses wheat paste, markers, vinyls, stencils and other street art tools for his current work. Haffner has exhibited his art both regionally and nationally.
