DCAC ART DECATHLON
Opening Reception: this Friday January 13, 7 - 9 PM
January 13 - February 5
The semi-finalists show the results of the worlds first art decathlon! After centuries of specialization in art that has relied on labels such as painter, sculptor or photographer, DCAC asked artists working in the DC metropolitan area to submit proposals exploring what “unspecialized” means to being a working artist today. For the competition, decathletes produce work falling under 10 disciplines-- textiles/fiber; painting; drawing; printmaking; photography; collage; sound; video; conceptual art; and sculpture. Semi-finalists, Shanthi Chandrasekar, Lee Gainer, Lisa Rosenstein, and Mary Woodall. This exhibition culminates in a medal ceremony, but only one artist will walk away with gold!
