Culture notes: Contemporary opens two exhibits about work on Friday; Fox announces two-show international series

VISUAL ART
Creative looks at work

The 19 Georgia artists showing in two exhibits opening Friday1/13 at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center work out some serious workplace issues:

  • “Day Job: Georgia” examines the artist’s relationship to a “real job” and investigates its effect on artistic practice — whether the works were created in resistance to the labor, inspired by it or even while on the time clock.
  • “100,000 Cubicle Hours” is an installation that evokes the office space and how creative types adapt it to maintain equilibrium.

The 7-10 p.m. Friday opening reception features a collaboration between the Good Food Truck and Dance Truck, the itinerant dance presenters known for using trucks as platforms for performances. Also, curators and artists give a talk at 11 a.m. Saturday.1/14

Both shows continue through March 24. 535 Means St. N.W., Atlanta. Admission: $5, $3 students and seniors, free under 12 and on Thursdays. 404-688-1970, www.thecontemporary.org. HOWARD POUSNER

PERFORMANCE
Fox announces shows

The Fox Theatre has announced two shows for its 2012 Delta International Series.

South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir, whose 2010 album “Grace” was a Grammy nominee for best traditional world music album, will appear at 7 p.m. March 4; and the Moscow Festival Ballet will perform “Cinderella” at 7:30 p.m. April 3.

The Fox typically presents a five-show international series, but a spokesperson said a busy schedule at the 1929 performing arts palace means that only two are being announced at this time. 

Tickets are on sale at the Fox box office, 1-800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com. HOWARD POUSNER
