May 4 - June 2, 2012
Opening Reception: Friday, May 4, 6-8pm
The Alternate Present will showcase Lisa Dillin’s recent sculptures. The works investigate the contrast between primitive and contemporary culture and the tension between the built environment and the natural world. One of Dillin’s central motifs is the contemporary office environment. The artist will incorporate materials such as Formica laminated MDF (medium density fiberboard), printed mirror and deconstructed vertical blinds. The exhibition will feature tree stump based side tables and a large wall-mounted cloud form inspired by modular cabinetry.
The artist will also be giving a talk at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Luce Center on May 20 at 1:30 pm.
916 G Street NW
