Artist Scott Ingram talks with Joe and Matthew the week before an art event unique to Atlanta but with relevance for cities everywhere.
All of the work in Til The Lights Go Out, which he is curating, will be demolished at the end of the exhibition along with the gallery space in which it is being housed. There are still lots of unknowns.
With this upcoming event as context, the conversation explores process, practice, and studio life. Gentrification is once again a theme: Cities grow and creative classes migrate. Scott’s studio history offers insight on the history of Atlanta’s creative community.
Because no one knows the genesis of inspiration, the importance of dreams and note taking are discussed. Night proves a recurring theme in the music of a certain drummer, with and without the band he is known for.
