Cosmo Whyte: Don’t Whistle in the House

August 24, 2017

Work by Cosmo Whyte (MFA 2015) is on view in Don’t Whistle in the House, a solo exhibition at Chastain Art Center from August 25 - October 14, 2017.

Chastain Arts Center is pleased to announce Cosmo Whyte: Don’t Whistle in the House, a solo exhibition.  This show presents drawings, installation, photography and mixed media paintings. The exhibit will feature new works created to explore notions of identity as disrupted by migration.

Cosmo Whyte is a Georgia based artist living in Atlanta. His most recent work references bodies of water as liminal, transitional spaces with allusions to international trade, human migration, and liberation. Rituals, and their displacement, erasure, and adaptation also enter the work as generative sites of intervention, and as stages for performing and experiencing place-less-ness.
