Robert Hightower
Atlanta native, Robert Hightower received his BFA in sculpture from the University of Georgia. Upon graduation, he moved to New York City and participated in The Bronx Museum of the Art’s AIM Fellowship (Artist In the Marketplace). While in New York, his interests expanded to include art installation and the creation of spaces, and has since designed and built many unique homes, penthouses and restaurants throughout the United States. Hightower has returned home to Atlanta and will be presenting his most comprehensive body of work to date, “The Apocalypse Simulacra.” This short-run immersive gallery installation is a narrative presentation of the twilight of humanity, at the fulcrum of extinction. Through stage-set constructions, readymade plastic models and paintings, Hightower investigates the duality of right/wrong, good/bad, eternal/ephemeral in light of the imminent end of the Human Epoch. It depicts the ideological origins of corporate greed and power, the reality of wealth distribution in the “American Dream,” and the socio-economic and environmental impacts of that collective greed. Hightower presents a unique universe of beauty, dichotomy and uncertainty. January 18 - January 29
