Review: Artists give lived-in look to Dashboard’s stimulating but unfocused “No Vacancy”

The most thought-provoking aspect of the evening was the knowledge that Coleman and Detweiler had actually committed to living exclusively in this space — eating, sleeping, showering, creating — for three weeks. Remnants of this experience were visible here and there — a portable shower like something used for camping, a homemade tent filled with pillows and blankets for sleeping, a toilet — and provided a more resonant layer of meaning to what otherwise might have seemed mere spectacle.

Arts briefs: Dashboard Co-op

Dashboard Co-op’s “No Vacancy, An Alternative Residency,” in which two artists are holed up in an undisclosed vacant Atlanta property for three weeks, is an effort to turn it all down and to see what kind of art develops in the relative silence and isolation.

Really Retro: Elevating Downtown Atlanta’s Historic South Broad Street with Murals and a Festival on Sat. Oct. 27

Tilt

The hope of Elevate organizers, area residents and business owners, and others who have been working together to revitalize the area is that the presence of this high-profile art in a setting that’s accessible to anyone will draw much-needed positive attention to South Broad Street. Despite the vacant spaces, a tightly-knit community exists here – one that understands the potential of the area and wants to see it fulfilled.
