Fall SOLOS 2016

On View: October 15 - December 18, 2016

Bridging the community with contemporary art is key to AAC’s mission. To achieve this, we bring 14 regional contemporary artists to Arlington each year through our SOLOS series alone!

More than 100 artists living in the Mid-Atlantic Region submitted proposals for this semi-annual exhibition. Jurors Sarah Newman, Independent Curator, and José Ruiz, Co-Director of Present Co. (NY), Director of Furthermore (DC), and Professor in the Curatorial Practice Program at MICA, recommended 14 applicants for inclusion in the SOLOS 2016-17 edition.

Aptly titled, SOLOS artists are assigned to one of our seven main gallery spaces, where they each mount a self-curated, self-contained exhibition, resulting in a selection of never-before-seen exhibitions. Join us for the opening reception Saturday, Oct. 15, 6 – 9 pm.

The Fall SOLOS Gallery Talk, a discussion and tour of each exhibition, followed by a light reception, is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016, 1 – 4 pm.

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.

Federico Cuatlacuatl: Tiaxcas Intergalácticxs, Topileastronáuticxs

April 6 - May 26, 2024

In experimental film and multimedia installation, Federico Cuatlacuatl explores transborder indigenous Nahua identities. His work envisions indigenous futurity as a means of thinking about history, diasporic legacies, and cultural identities.

Clarissa Pezone: The Woods of No Name

March 30 - May 26, 2024

In Clarissa Pezone’s figurative installations, the artist utilizes the qualities of clay to evoke the uncanny in otherworldly and unsettling scenes. For The Woods of No Name, Pezone has created a new installation that explores the concept of limbo–what the artist describes as “the mystic space that exists between reality and the unknown.”
