GEORGIA is a new, pop-up art space located in the alley behind 952 Mariposa Street in Denver's La Alma neighborhood. Housed in Sommer Browning’s one-and-a-quarter car garage, GEORGIA aims to blur space and purpose. To bring artists, musicians, writers, fabricators, and thinkers together. To bring them together in a garage. To bring them together in a garage for a short period of time.

GEORGIA is pleased to present its first exhibition: FUTURE BODIES, a collection of Joshua Ware’s large-scale collages. Ware’s collages combine absurd imagery indebted to Dada and Surrealism with color-field backgrounds that take cues from Bauhaus and De Stijl. By merging disparate artistic lineages, the works produce l'art du bricolage that promotes a pragmatic and inclusive approach to the creative process.

FUTURE BODIES will be on view one weekend only.

Occurring simultaneously over the same weekend, Counterpath will show 952 Mariposa an exact replica of the garage before its conversion. The contents of the garage (boxes of books, broken air conditioners, cobwebbed exercise equipment, a car) will be installed at Counterpath, an already functioning gallery space which itself was formerly a garage.
