Our client, Underground developer WRS, recently shared news of the approval for non-profit Urban Catalyst Lab to install the world’s first Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) based local-to-global art installation on property. The installation will find its home in the heart of the city amongst the 4-block Underground redevelopment. Urban Catalyst Lab strategically curated a strong list of brilliant artists that will bring to life their mission of contributing positively to urban space by using Art-As-A-Solution for a resilient and equitable community and city.
During a recent lunchtime launch event attended by media, industry and stakeholders, Urban Catalyst Lab revealed the names of four Atlanta artists behind the collaborative installation. The artists include William Massey, Shanequa Gay, and duo Jessica Anderson and Sebastian Monroy. There will also be one Afro-Cuban artist, yet to be selected, and in partnership with UN-Habitat, a contemporary public artist from Africa will also be selected. The African artist will bring the global perspective of social justice and will contribute to Urban Catalyst Lab’s efforts of democratizing the narrative.
Installation of the art will begin in 2020 on Lower Alabama Street. To learn more about the forthcoming art installation, read the initial press release here and the press release about the artists involved in the project here.
