Gift Exchange at DCAC

May 8 - June 7
Opening Reception: May 8, 7-9pm

Curated by Laura Roulet
Apprentice Curator: Landria Shack

Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s classic 1979 book The Gift, Gift Exchange presents the work of six accomplished Washington D.C. artists paired with six works by associated artists received in exchange. Relationships between artists such as teacher-student, mentor-acolyte, and collaborators are conveyed in the stories of these exchanges. The notion of art as a gift rather than a commodity, but also a gift as talent, as inspiration, and as catalyst for change, underlies the exhibit.

DCAC is located at 2438 18th Street NW, between Belmont and Columbia Roads, in the heart of the Washington's Adams Morgan neighborhood. DCAC is easily accessible by public transportation, we recommend that our patrons come by metrobus or metrorail if possible.
