Artist-Citizen, Washington DC
Exhibition Dates: June 5 - July 27, 2013
Opening Reception with the artists:
Wednesday, June 5
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Artist-Citizen, Washington DC is both celebratory and reflexive. The gallery is making its 20'th year and this exhibition takes time to consider the gallery's investment in its community. This show meditates on citizenship and draws together represented artists and beyond who's work impacts society outside the bubble of the art world.
The works included in the exhibition point to or are made for situations concerning the Washington DC community—the place in which these artists live and work. Featured artists include Colby Caldwell, Larry Cook, Max Hirshfeld, James Huckenpahler, Franz Jantzen, free[space]collective, Mingering Mike, Anne Rowland, Julie Wolfe, and Workingman Collective. While photography is a focus of the show, works in other media including video, installation, and sculpture are also incorporated. Together these works reveal points that bridge the distance between the artist and the community, and they encourage a creative exchange between artist and viewer. Through these visually rich and provocative art experiences, Hemphill hopes to demonstrate how the Artist-Citizen engages us in the conditions of the DC community, reveals connectedness between citizens, and enhances an overall well-being.
