NEW WORK BY MEMBERS OF SPARKPLUG
JUNE 17, 2011
WASHINGTON, DC – After a year of working, talking, and being together as a collective, the seven current members of DCAC’s Sparkplug present riveting new work in their second exhibit at theDC Arts Center in Adams Morgan. The group exhibit, Something Other Than The Presentexplores the desire for non-existent places, unreachable times, and unattainable states of being. Working in the media of photography, painting, video, assemblage and textiles these artists draw from one another’s experience and process in this exhibition meticulously curated by Blair Murphy. In Something Other Than The Present the Sparkplug collective presents work that both reflects and comments on the common human longing for places, times, and states that are, ultimately, unattainable. Sparkplug is currently Chajana denHarder, Todd Gardner, Joseph Hale, Chandi Kelley, Matt Smith, and Dafna Steinberg with Blair Murphy participating as curator and writer.
