GKA travelled to Latina, Italy last Saturday to attend the 2017 COMEL Awards. GKA’s sculpture Holding Pattern, completed for last year’s Art on the Atlanta BeltLine has been nominated as a finalist in the award. A smaller version of the original sculpture was shipped to Latina for inclusion in the exhibition.
The award celebrates artwork made from aluminium and included pieces from 13 shortlisted artists from across Europe.
George King Architects have been named as a finalist in the year’s COMEL Award. The award, which celebrates the use of aluminium in contemporary art, received hundreds of entries from artists around the world.
GKA is one of 13 finalists whose work will be included in an exhibition in Latina, Italy in October.
George King Architects will head to Atlanta in September to take part in the annual Art on the Atlanta BeltLine event. GKA will be unveiling a large hanging installation entitled Holding Pattern that features 137 planes folded from sheet aluminium and arranged in a downward spiralling vortex. The planes will vary in size and the installation will be suspended from one of the underpasses along the BeltLine.
Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is the City of Atlanta’s largest temporary public art exhibition. It will begin with a lantern parade on September 10th and run through to mid November.
