Project Description

an arabesque in histories

a series of requiems from one vacant building to another

glo offers a new work to The Zero Mile Post, the oldest landmark in Atlanta. an arabesque in histories elicits choreography to demonstrate a compelling and nuanced need to use the archival materials on site as a way for systems and actions to be poetic connectors to serve citizens of today. The work will feature a series of response choreographies for eight female glo moving artists, a FORUM moderated by activist effort Thread ATL, and a VIEWING of the Pheonix Project, organized by Department of Anthropology at Georgia State University. The Atlanta Zero Mile Post stands as a reminder of the birth of the city of Atlanta. Established in 1847, the granite sculpture is currently locked away in a vacant building with a wooden wagon installed next to it, in the basement of a disused parking garage in Downtown Atlanta.
