January 23 - February 13, 2010
Opening Reception Saturday, January 23, 2010, 7 - 9 p.m.
Sixteen writers and sixteen visual artists from Washington, D.C., and beyond have paired to create artworks that resonate with each other for a new exhibition, Call + Response. The show includes the work of a Guggenheim fellowship recipient and seven Hamiltonian Fellows.
Call + Response's participants have given a new twist to the term "call and response" (a succession of two distinct phrases played by different musicians in which the second phrase comments on or responds to the first). For each pairing, the writer has provided the call and the visual artist has created the response. The result is paired works that resonate with each other, building a bridge between two distinct but fertile communities.
