TransATLantic was first presented last summer by GALLERY twenty-four in Berlin featuring a group exhibition of emerging artists from Atlanta. TransATLantic has since developed into an annual bi-directional cultural event between the two cities. This years event is organized by Artist in Residence International (AIRI), Be Original @ Miami Circle, and GALLERY twenty-four in Berlin.
TransATLantic 2005 will be juried by a distinguished committee of Atlanta artists, critics, and curators. This exhibition features emerging artists from Berlin and will take place November 5 thru 30, 2005 at Be Original @ Miami Circle gallery in Atlanta. One artist from the top 10 finalists will also be chosen by the committee to receive the prestigious AIRI Artists in Residence Award, a 2-4 week residency which includes transportation to/from Atlanta, living accommodations and studio space. AIRI will also arrange public appearances, including but not limited to, open studio visits and guest lectures at local Atlanta colleges and/or universities.
