Admission: Free

Process: Reaffirmation is on show now @ Hillyer Art Space:

Sacha Ingber

April 1st 2011 – April 29th 2011

Curated by Gina Marie Lewis, Process: Reaffirmation is an exhibition which focuses on and reaffirms the processes of artists within their studios. This exhibition honors the personal philosophies, practices, and vocabularies of eight artists and attempts to explore a visual dialogue between their works. Ms. Lewis states, "The lack of a specific theme outside of this dialogue is not an oversight. The entire process of this exhibition from submission through selection to mounting the show is an experiment of creation in progress."

The exhibition represents an opportunity for artists to retain power over their work in the context of their own philosophies and interpretations. The artists selected for this exhibition include Anne Bouie, Daniel Brookings, Joel D’Orazio, Victor Ekpuk, Corwin Levi, Barbara Liotta, Adrienne Mills, and Cleve Overton. In some cases, the relationships between their works may be obvious, and other instances invite the viewer to inquire and explore the relationships from their own point of view. As a starting point, such aspects as linear relationships, creation of new processes, innovative use of materials, the making of marks, and defining space were most apparent during the curatorial process.

For additional information about the artists and images of works in the exhibition, please contact Lisa Gold at lgold or 202-234-7103 ext 3.
