Artuaré and Conversations in the Contemporary

<em>Artuaré</em> and <em>Conversations in the Contemporary</em>

December 12, 2011 – April 29, 2012

Museum: Anacostia Community Museum

Location: Main Gallery

On view are two installations in the 2nd part of the exhibition series Call and Response: Creativity and Community:

  • In Artuaré Steven M. Cumming presents multilayered installations that take on the power of visual representation and show how images can shape our ideas of who we are.
  • In Conversations in the Contemporary, CreativeJunkfood presents a video installation featuring animation, spoken word, and music that explores personal identity in the political, social, and cultural environment.

Call and Response: Creativity and Community is a multipart exhibition that explores artists and their visions as they draw upon the cultural expression found in schools, churches, community organizations, and other venues in the public sphere.
