Creative Loafing Atlanta

Cuban-born, Atlanta-based artist offers an effusive to creativity

It’s hard not to rejoice when a longtime Atlanta artist achieves Big Kahuna status with a show at the High Museum. Local artist Radcliffe Bailey scored big in 2011 with his retrospective Memory as Medicine at the museum and is probably still fist-pumping the air after scaling that career hurdle. Now the Cuban-born, Atlanta-based artist Alejandro Aguilera has garnered his own real estate in a more intimate, but still impressive show. About the Modern Spirit is an effusive, life-affirming group hug to human creativity that proves a nice juxtaposition with the neighboring show’s cuckoo-for-color graf-anime of the Brooklyn-based artist Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS.
