Party Crashers: Comic Book Culture Invades the Art World opens tomorrow night at the Arlington Arts Center. The exhibit is geographically split between the AAC and the new Artisphere in Rosslyn; it's also split thematically between alternative comic books at the AAC and fine art that's sort of related to comics at the Artisphere.

Beat Freaks: “Like, a Few Months Ago, I Made 17 New Facebook Friends at Just One Opening!”

So, um, curious about Beat Freaks, the new band of artists Kathryn Cornelius and Jeffry Cudlin? Alt-art-scene doyenne Philippa Hughes shot some video of the band's debut last night at the $150 Washington Project for the Arts fundraiser. Sample lyric: "When I go out to Art/I get to see so manyof my friends there/It’s like [...]

Possibly the Only Reason to Attend Tonight’s $150 WPA Reception: Cornelius and Cudlin’s Beat Freaks

Perhaps you're on the fence about attending tonight's fundraiser for the Washington Project for the Arts! It does, after all, cost $150.
I'll assume that number either made up your mind or it didn't, and just get to the point: For its fete tonight celebrating the opening of "Catalyst: 35 Years of the Washington Project for [...]

Art NoVa: Who Gains from the Massive New Artisphere?

Earlier this year, Rosslyn’s civic leaders were touting the Arlington neighborhood opposite Georgetown as “Manhattan on the Potomac.” And now with the brand new Artisphere—which will open this weekend with a series of galas advertised heavily to the District’s cultural classes—they may have their Lincoln Center.
But that leaves out a complicating factor: Back in the [...]

Arts Roundup: 100 DMV Artists Edition

Good morning! Lenny Campello, author of the forthcoming book 100 Washington Artists, isn't happy—at all—with Kriston Capps' Arts Desk piece on him from yesterday, and says so at length on his D.C. Art News blog. Jeffry Cudlin—artist, curator, WCP art critic—has some thoughts on his blog, which he gets to after having some fun with [...]

F. Lennox Campello Compiles List of 100 D.C. Artists, but Where’s Mingering Mike?

F. Lennox Campello—D.C. artist, art critic, and keeper of an indispensable art-news blog—is working on a book tentatively titled 100 Washington Artists that will be published in 2011 by Schiffer Books. Over the weekend, he revealed which artists made the cut.

Arts Roundup: Exhibitionist Eye Patch Edition

Good morning! Seems like it's de rigueur these days to begin a roundup with some musing on the weather, but I'm an indoor kid.
David Quammen's patrons aren't, though, and that's the problem: The subject of my colleague Amanda Hess' column this week runs the MOCA DC gallery in Georgetown and is facing eviction—partially because a performer, [...]

Photos: Inciting Art-Gallery Dance Parties with Jeffry Cudlin

People will react to a man in a pink dress carrying a boombox down 14th Street NW in three ways. Some will pretend it’s something they’re used to seeing. Others will laugh. But most will just smile nervously, as if they suspect they’re being surveilled.
“There’s something liberating about making art that at the end of [...]

Jeffry Cudlin Looks Pretty in Pink

Pink Line Project founder Philippa P.B. Hughes has a distinct style to match her status as a tastemaker within the D.C. art scene. But this week marks a milestone in the life of this "Chief Contrarian" – the first time her look has become iconic enough to warrant satirical imitation. That's artist and City Paper [...]
