INAUGURAL SEASON 2017-2018 ARTISTS
Community members, art lovers, and artists alike will make the mobile art gallery a vibrant hub of activity, right at people’s doorsteps in neighborhoods across DC, as the 2017–18 Season of Space4: Art begins this Fall.
SALVITORE PIRRONE | STRING ROOM
In Salvatore Pirrone’s exhibition, visitors will engage in the simple activity of searching for string and pulling it from the wall’s surface – putting the viewer in touch with their surroundings and harnessing the pleasure performing a simple task.
MAGGIE GOURLAY | FEELIN’ GROUNDED
Maggie Gourlay will bring experiences of nature to urban communities through an exhibition that highlights the importance of clean air and water, and the devastating effects of climate change on the planet.
JD DEARDOURFF | UNCANNY FANTASTIC
JD Deardourff excavates passages from his comic book collection, removing the positive space and collaging the remaining imagery into large-scale, abstract, and unpredictable compositions.
AMY WIKE | IN A WORD
Amy Wike’s exhibition will be driven by content collected directly from the community in which the container gallery is placed. Visitors will navigate the space through a maze of collected words that reveal preconceived notions of the neighborhood.
Nara Park will create a mobile cemetery in the container gallery that investigates simulations of nature as expressions of the human desire for immortality.
AMANDA BURNHAM | BLOCK WATCH
Amanda Burnham will transform the container gallery into an exhibition space with an immersive drawing installation that builds upon her recent work and capitalizes upon the unique site-specific circumstances of the project to connect to the community in which the work resides.
JUNG MIN PARK | MEMORY SCAPE
Jung Min Park will create a dreamy atmosphere inside the container gallery by placing abstract cityscapes inside light boxes – evoking a sense of abandoned memory from viewers.
Noa Heyne will build an interactive whale-oid hydraulic sculpture, accompanied with an animation video. The installation will be playful and family friendly, while at the same time raising questions of responsibility and control of individuals over their space.
