Fall 2018 Exhibitions Opening Reception

Saturday / October 13 / 6-9pm

Please join us on Saturday, October 13 from 6 to 9pm to celebrate the opening of our fall exhibitions, Fall SOLOS 2018 and Dawn Whitmore: A house is like a mind that holds everything. Engage with artists from both exhibitions and visit our residents during their open studio hours.

The artists of Fall SOLOS 2018 examine landscapes, investigate personal histories, and analyze the ways physical objects communicate meaning and help us understand the world.

Exhibiting artists Nekisha Durrett, Zoe Friedman, Aimee Gilmore, Artemis Herber, Cindy Stockton Moore, Tristan Roland, and Julia Staples will install solo-style exhibitions in AAC’s seven main gallery spaces. Working in various media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, animation, and installation, these artists represent the wide-ranging practices and interests of contemporary artists working in the Mid-Atlantic.

Dawn Whitmore: A house is like a mind that holds everything is a 5-channel immersive sound installation that delves into the relationship between the mind and the house as metaphorical dwellings. Drawing on myth, philosophy, and global conflict, Whitmore invites participants to follow the work’s soundscape through time, moving from uncertainty to clarity.

Reception fare generously provided by Catering by LT (a division of Lebanese Taverna Group).

Liz Ensz: NO GRIDS NO MASTERS

March 30 - May 26, 2024

NO GRIDS NO MASTERS: a Post-Cartesian Experiment is an exploration and contestation of the grid and the structured set of worldviews that are embedded in it. Incorporating digital and traditional weaving, sculpture, found objects, and transformed cast materials, the installation reflects the artist’s intense engagement with material.
