M12’s Lone Prairie is an experiential installation that presents video and sound field recordings captured on the High Plains of Eastern Colorado over the last year. The 6-channel sound and video installation will explore the spatial atmosphere surrounding The Last Chance Module Array, a land work created in 2015-16 in a former agricultural field. This work is much like a ghost structure - something akin to what Robert Smithson referred to as a “ruin in reverse.”
Full Circle: Hue and Saturation in the Washington Color School
Opening Reception on June 14 from 7-8 p.m. Open to the public June 14-October 26; Tues-Fri, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and weekends, 1-6 p.m. at Luther W. Brady Art Galleries in 500 17th Street NW.
Drawing from the GW Collection along with critical loans, paintings and mixed media will provide examples of the Washington Color School and its legacy. This exhibition marks the first for the Luther W. Brady Art Galleries in their new space in the Corcoran School, a fitting venue for many of the artists represented were alumni of the Corcoran or have showed there before.
