Search Engine : social art garden

A man-made grassy hillside that grows over time for continuous choreographic situations, civic actions, and contemplation, and as an artists’ SEARCH ENGINE into the body’s motion as the most humane expression of art. For its first iteration, the experience ran for 24 hours for seven days in an in-between space at Atlanta Contemporary, sustained by glo moving artists, recorded nature sounds, and community, establishing SEARCH ENGINE as a garden for collaboration, sensory journey, and autonomous dreaming. In parallel to the installation are civic actions, including Farming, Shop, and Movement Choirs.

Other components of vigorous dialogue and community happenings included King of Pops, Coleman family letter writing, KSU French Club/ Photo Novela, Sacred Sound Orchestra, Bohanon Thai Bodywork & Yoga, Yoga on the Move & Coloring Our Landscape Beautiful, Eyedrum’s Sonic Adventures acoustic improv and Writer’s Exchange, Little Feasties, Eyedrum Discussion Party, ChopArt, all night candle lighting, storytelling with Carlos Thompson, LadyFest film screening, sunrise daily bathing, daily grass trimming meditation, daily smoothie making, and sleepovers.

SEARCH ENGINE is a production of The Goat Farm Arts Center and Tanz FarmSEARCH ENGINE is made possible by an Artists’ occupation at Atlanta Contemporary. The second iteration is made possible by an Artists’ occupation of the front yard of Octane Coffee Bar Westside.

Discourse & Art/Criticism in ATL

Please join us for the third installation of this ongoing conversation arching over discourse & art/criticism.  

Critical contemplation guided by conscious aesthetic sense. Critical contemplation guided by the soul. Lets talk about atlanta's growing pool of artists as critics. How do we harness action around these conversations? Are we already doing so? Lets talk about the small picture. These are a few thoughts on our minds at tanz farm.

Tanz Farm corrals Atlanta's artists, activists, writers and producers centered in the vanguard to-do and the practical demands of a still-evolving terrain of culture publishing:

Liliana Bakhtiari // organizer and activist

Victoria Camblin // Art Papers editor

Stephanie Cash // Burnaway editor

Jerry Cullum // writer and artist

Zaida J Sanchez // Wussy mag features editor

David Stedman // Murmur Media director of outreach & new initiatives


These are a few things we are thinking about at Tanz Farm.

Discourse & Art/Criticism in ATL

Please join us for a continuation of last month's FEED 

*Let's talk about the small picture. 

What is the best web infrastructure for fostering responsive arts journalism that encourages substantial conversations between writers and readers? Are there artists who do not wish to be included in publications that lack diversity and reach? 

Lets talk about atlanta's growing pool of artists as critics. Critique as performance. What makes a good critic today. can atlanta make them? What makes a good artist today. can atlanta make them?

These are a few things we are thinking about at Tanz Farm.

Spring FEED Conversation

Moderated by Daniel Fuller

Is discourse a democratic undertaking? Has the internet changed art criticism? How is Atlanta's art criticism enfolding the power of art within a larger dynamics of our community? What are the demands readers can make of critics?

Tanz Feed corrals Atlanta editors and writers from diverse publishers to reflect on the various roles of art publishing today and how these platforms consider the tensions around active discourse. This is a gathering for Atlanta's writers, artists, producers and curators centered in the vanguard to-do and the practical demands of a still-evolving terrain of culture publishing.

Wine and discussion could easily flow into the witching hour into the absence of judgement. The discussion is organized by Tanz Farm: a contemporary anthology collaboration of The Goat Farm Arts Center and glo.
