Atomic Surplus

6-8 pm, Oct 11, 2013 | $5 suggested donation
 

“Oh, yeah,” Candace Tangorra Matelic says when asked if the the Center for Contemporary Arts’ latest venture, Atomic Surplus, is more than just an art exhibit.

As well as encasing never-before-seen works by Tony Price, Atomic Surplus features a stable of international artists from countries affected in one way or another by nuclear legacy—from Japan to Switzerland—and also serves as the official unveiling of the CCA’s newly reconfigured gallery. 

“When curating group exhibitions, I strive not to create a precise narrative, but rather offer many points of entry for deeper consideration,” Erin Elder, CCA’s visual arts director says of her approach. “I think of each project as stakes on the edge of a tent; how the tent is erected or what shape it takes is really up to the individual doing that lifting.” 

Coinciding with the kick-off to the center’s 35th anniversary, the herculean exhibit comes as a result of a partnership between the CCA, the Los Alamos Historical Society, The National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, and others.
