Get This! Gallery presents the solo exhibition, SYNTHESIZ by Atlanta based artist Ben “Bean” Worley. This is Bean’s second solo exhibition with GT! The exhibition features new video work as well as prints based on stills from the featured videos.
The exhibition will also include a series of evening performances throughout the duration of the show. These will include music performances, DJ/parties and performance art events in which Bean will be doing live video mixing and projections to accompany the invited performers.
SYNTHESIZ fuses the binary roles of his personal and professional life with the historical precedent of film and art. Worley contextualizes his formal artistic training within a pop cultural experience that combines video, music and performance, transforming the analog materials he gathers into a contemporary digital medium. The transformative elements of Worley’s videos translate into the nature of the exhibit as a whole. The gallery will continually shift between both a formal viewing space and a music and events venue with every component synthesizing to create a unified visual experience giving the participant a view into the multifaceted nature of Worley’s work and background.
