an arabesque in histories
January 28-February 3, 2018
Zero Mile Post
A site-based intervention to the Zero Mile Post, the oldest landmark in Atlanta. an arabesque in histories elicits choreography to demonstrate a compelling nuanced need to use the archival materials on site as a way for systems and actions to be poetic connectors to serve citizens of today. A co-collaboration with activist effort ThreadATL and the Department of Anthropology at Georgia State University.
The Atlanta Zero Mile Post stands as a reminder of the birth of the city of Atlanta. Established in 1847, the granite sculpture is currently locked away in a vacant building with a wooden wagon installed next to it, in the basement of a disused parking garage in Downtown Atlanta.
Featuring all new work, many of which will be created on site for eight female moving artists - Kristina Brown, Cara Celeste, Virginia Coleman, Christina Kelly, Katherine Maxwell, Mandi Mpezo, phaemonae, Mechelle Tunstall.

a utopia station series to various public spaces in metro Atlanta
July 9, 2011- July 25, 2013
Stallings employs universal gesture as a way into utopia- no place and good place - and as a series of public interventions envisioned as subjective everyday experiences in real time and intentional realities. Each cycle of Liquid Culture is unveiled over a 13-day period in the form of public stations for arriving, leaving and staying awhile. Locations for the installation vary in scale and density, and include a MARTA station, Sol dewitt's 54 Columns, High Museum Sifly Plaza, Little 5 Points neighborhood, and 15th & Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta. The project engages an ambitious collaborative, including The Atlanta Opera, Alliance Theatre and Sonic Generator, to investigate over-arching themes and common threads in individual installments, including public freedom and the need to be a part of a collective.
