Low-Gallery Diet: Can D.C.’s Art Scene Survive Without Traditional Spaces?

Who’s bothered by the fact that House of Cards tapes in Baltimore, not in D.C.? Let’s see. Folks who work at the District’s Office of Motion Picture and Television Development, for sure. Young aspirational residents of Capitol Hill, too, I’m betting. The D.C. art world? After last week, when Pussy Riot joined Kevin Spacey and [...]

Mia Feuer’s Gas Station Installation Scrapped Altogether

Artist Mia Feuer's planned gas-station installation is officially off. Plans to install the piece, a full-sized replica of a gas station proposed as part of the D.C. Commission on Arts and Humanities' 5x5 series, in the Anacostia River were scrapped last week, with the commission saying it was pursuing other locations for the project. But [...]

Mia Feuer Won’t Install a Gas-Station Sculpture in the Anacostia, After All

Artist Mia Feuer's plan to install a sculpture of a sunken gas station in the Anacostia River has been shelved. The buzzy proposed project first hit a snag yesterday, when a coalition of opponents sent a letter to the arts commission objecting to Feuer's piece. The sculpture, "Antediluvian," was part of the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities' "5x5" exhibition [...]

ToDo ToDay: FotoWeek, Fall Fringe, Corcoran Community Day, and James Blake

NoMa could never be called the District’s most visually appealing neighborhood. But it has played host to heaps of local photography this year—notably during the recent FotoBazaar, and now, for the sixth annual edition of FotoWeek. This year’s photo festival kicks off tonight with a hipster-flavored cocktail-and-dance party at FotoWeek’s official HQ at the National [...]

The Artspace Race: D.C.’s Newest Artist Apartments Are Great—If You Can Get In

Back when Brookland Studios still stood at 3305 8th St. NE, the sound of passing Metro cars sometimes made its way into the art. Listen closely to “A Traitor in My Mind,” a song the D.C. indie rock band Last Tide recorded in 2009 at what was then an artists’ warehouse. The track starts gently, with [...]

Reviewed: “Site Aperture” at Flashpoint

Four artists contributed works to this exhibit of site-specific installations, including Mia Feuer, whose jackal-headed, missile-shaped, Styrofoam forms deliberately confound notions of lightness and heft; Talia Greene, who creates wallpaper that includes hand-drawn ants as an integral component; and Mariah Anne Johnson, who fills out empty spaces in the gallery with meticulously folded and stacked [...]
