Intersection of Krog Street and Irwin Street/Lake Avenue

* musical performances each night at 9pm

The galleries of i45 are pleased to announce “Convergent Frequencies”, a site-specific art installation commissioned by ArtBox, a collaboration between i45 and Possible Futures. Follow three local artists, Matt Gilbert, Matt Haffner, and Nat Slaughter as they reinvent the empty lot with three large shipping containers using images, film, and sound, while simultaneously celebrating the surrounding neighborhoods.


Matt Haffner’s contribution to “Convergent Frequencies” will be a series of narrative portraits applied to the exteriors of the three shipping containers. His silhouetted figures play out scenes with a background of urban iconography including bodegas, pawnshops, liquor stores and laundromats. Using found images, local architecture, and his personal understanding of the urban experience, Haffner relates the imagery specifically to the Inman Park, Old 4th Ward, Little 5 Points area that both he and the works inhabit.

i45 is a collective of Atlanta galleries in Inman Park (i), the Old Fourth Ward (4) and Little Five Points (5) working together to promote this neighborhood`s rich, creative identity. Member galleries include Barbara Archer Gallery, Henley Studios, Whitespace Gallery,
and Wm Turner Gallery
. Through shared events and common interests, we seek wider visibility for our artists and our vision of building a vibrant arts community.

Free and open to the public. Food and beverages available for purchase.
