Happenings

Collecting Impressionism: Telfair's Modern Vision

Jepson Center
Collecting Impressionism: Telfair’s Modern Vision traces the early 20th-century footsteps of noted Telfair art advisor Gari Melchers (1860–1932) as he traveled the country and the globe identifying remarkable examples of the avant- garde art movement and giving them a permanent home in Savannah.

Before Midnight: Bonaventure and the Bird Girl

Telfair Academy
Telfair Museums presents Sylvia Shaw Judson’s iconic sculpture Bird Girl within the context of the history and art of Bonaventure Cemetery.

Complex Uncertainties: Artists in Postwar America

Jepson Center
The rise of America as a world superpower after WWII created a distinctly individual and identifiably “American” approach to artmaking. Complex Uncertainties is an evolving exhibition grounded by works in Telfair’s modern and contemporary collection that reveals some of the ways in which historic events challenge artists to construct narratives and react to power.

Machines of Futility: Unproductive Technologies

Jepson Center
This exhibition of interactive and kinetic art highlights artists making machines that use humor and absurdity to question the usefulness of technology. The exhibition includes artist Neil Mendoza’s Robotic Voice Activated Word Kicking Machine, which humorously visualizes how machines hear or don’t hear what we say, substituting an absurd apparatus for the unseen technology in our pockets and homes.

Events

41st Annual Telfair Ball

February 27, 2021 at 6pm Telfair Academy
The 1920s was a transformative decade and brings to mind fringed fashions, soaring steel architecture, iconic dance moves, the art deco movement, the rhapsodious music of the jazz age, secretive indulgences in hidden speakeasies, and a general air of optimism and living life to the fullest. A century later, let’s Lindy Hop together into our own Roaring 20s in a transformational way through a scaled down version of our beloved Telfair Ball
