Traditionally, when showing work in a gallery, an artist will complete the work, the curator will hang it up, audiences will come and see it until the exhibition closes. But an exhibit on view at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center tweaked that formula by having the artists continually return to the gallery to alter their work. WABE’s Myke Johns spoke to artist Nathan Sharratt about his work in the “In Translation” exhibit.

“In Translation” is on display now at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. There is a second exhibit running concurrently titled “Coloring,” and both shows are open through March 8th. You can find more information at Atlanta PlanIt.
