Based on the likenesses of artists from the DC metro area, the objective of this project is to chronicle connections between artists, their environment, personalities and work through portraiture. The pieces in DOCUMENT range from black & white digital prints to installations where the audience in directed to play a part in the presentation of the portraits. The collective works of the project also serves as a selected educational archive of the dc underground art scene in the recent years.

Honfleur Gallery presents Wavelengths, an exhibition of four installation artists, curated by microWave project. These four artists have been invited to create installations throughout the gallery’s two-story space, based on their interpretation of the word “wavelength.” In addition to this exhibition, we will have a hands-on community installation project to help raise awareness and funds for those affected by Japan’s recent Tsunami and Earthquake disaster.
