We’re out here! Everyone knows that the South has a special place in our hearts here at Aint-Bad, so we spent the weekend at SlowExposures 2015 in Pike County Georgia, which is sure to be four incredible days of exhibitions, pop up shows, and events featuring a diverse exchange of views of the South. Check out the SlowExposure website for more info, and check out their mission statement: “Place matters. Art matters. So does community. And, when the three are mixed together by the SlowExposures volunteers–both natives and immigrants to the American South, a peculiar alchemy occurs.

Call For Entry

Deadline Extended! The Selfie is privacy made public. It is the ultimate in contemporary TMI, at once new and as old as the portrait itself. And though the selfie seems to be here to stay, there is debate about its effect on personal and collective self-awareness. Has it left us with a fetish of the self, senselessly archiving the banality of our everyday lives? Or is it simply a convenient, healthy channel for self expression?
