Flashpoint Gallery & (e)merge art fair
present the next
April 16, 3pm
Source, 1835 14th St NW
Free to the public. No RSVP required.
This panel discussion will explore how arts organizations can push exhibition practices beyond traditional galleries into alternative formats and will explore DIY artist initiatives that shape public experiences of experimental works of art.
Topics will range from the DIY ethos to ephemeral, time-based media and from art fairs to guerilla art projects. The panel will cover both the philosophical and practical aspects of exhibiting art.

The (e)merge conversations focus on the needs of emerging artists and galleries; past topics have included: how emerging artists build communities, artist representation, and the dynamics of artist – gallery relationships. (e)merge is committed to facilitating the careers of emerging artists by sharing information, initiating constructive discussions, and fostering inter-connectivity, among artists, collectors, curators, and gallery owners. (e)merge presents these educational events throughout the year, in addition to presenting extensive programs during the (e)merge art fair (September 22-25, at the Capital Skyline Hotel, Washington, DC).
