Artists’ Talk: Thursday, January 19, 4pm
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 19, 6-8pm
￼Assimilation/Dissolution is the result of an intensive collaboration between DC-based artists Jefferson Pinder, Christopher Hoeting and Jeffry Cudlin. Generated over the course of six months, this cycle of works forms an extended conversation on the issues of shifting geographic boundaries and community identities in Washington, DC. At once a creative experiment and critical conversation, the process began with each artist creating one piece inspired by the current real estate boom and related issues of gentrification in DC. Every two weeks, the artists would then trade completed artworks and craft new responses to one another's efforts. The 30 resulting paintings, videos and mixed-media collages each trace intersections and divergences among the artists’ individual perspectives on race, class, urban geography and cultural and artistic histories. Assimilation/Dissolution is on view in the Gallery at Flashpoint.
