All good things must come to an end

And so goes MINT Classic. We are moving onto bigger (not really) and better (really) things. To help get you in the mood, here's a little promo put together by our good friend Raymond Carr.

We've got the 5th Annual Postcard Pinup Show happening on Friday and it will also be a celebration of our move. We'll start the night at 8pm with an informal procession/parade from MINT Classic to New MINT. Our new address is:

145B Sampson Street
Atlanta, GA 30312

Then the party will go on until we say it's time to go home or until someone pukes on the couch in the office.

See you soon!

Refreshments provided by Asahi.

Say goodbye and wish us well on our move. We love you all.

November and December

Thanks to everyone to stopped by Nikita's opening on Saturday. Amazing turnout, awesome music from Bosco, and lots of love. You can read more about the exhibit here and here and you can listen to an interview with Nikita and Erica here.

We're gearing up for the big move to the new space in December so we've planned a last few events to bid a proper farewell to the current space.

First, is our yART Sale on November 20th and 21st to get rid of all the art and random items we've accumulated over the years. If you're an artist who's left work here at some point, please come grab your work before then! Otherwise, it will be sold and all proceeds will go to facilitate our move. On the 20th, the sale will be at:

1118 Colquitt Ave NE
Atlanta, GA 30307

And on the 21st it will be at the gallery:

684 John Wesley Dobbs Ave, Unit B
Atlanta, GA 30312

Second, we've got a big closing party planned for November 27th. We'll have music from Lille and Living Rooms, a lullaby set from Book of Colors along with refreshments from Asahi.

Then, on December 3rd, we'll have our first opening in the new space! It will be our 5th Annual Postcard Pinup Show and everyone is invited to participate. This event is a great, low pressure way to get artwork in front of the MINT staff. Email for submission info.

Tomorrow - BOOLESH1T

On Saturday, November 6th, MINT is proud to present "BOOLESH1IT" from Nikita Gale.

The show is an exploration of the evolution of the relationship between humanity and technology. The work presented in this exhibition seeks to explore the inherently fleeting nature of being human and how human beings cope both physically and psychologically with the rapidly expanding influence and permanence of digital technology wit...hin modern human civilization. Itʼs an exploration of how the human mind negotiates the massive proliferation of information in a visually-driven, post-literate age.

The name for the show “BOOLESH1T” was inspired by George Boole, creator of Boolean arithmetic. Boolean arithmetic is a mathematical system which precipitated the development of Boolean logic, a system used in electronics that spawned the creation of virtually every digital device and website on the Internet. The Internet has gone from being a source of information and social interaction to becoming a source of, well, a lot of superfluous... “SH1T”. BOOLESH1T is ultimately a visual investigation that seeks to answer questions like “How can we as human beings continue to lead meaningful, fulfilling existences in a world that is inevitably hurtling toward complete digital automation?”

“How has this overflow of information provided by the Internet affected the ways that we think and interact with others?”
”Are we becoming less compassionate?”
”Are we growing less aware of our physical selves and our surroundings?”

The gallery space will be transformed into an interactive physical and visual manifestation of the artistʼs interpretation of the Internet. The show will feature traditional photographic prints as well as photo-based installations and mixed media works.
