DCAC’s Curatorial Initiative program has given aspiring curators the opportunity to work with and be mentored by established and experienced curators since 2006. The resulting exhibitions have brought over 200 artists to our gallery, and in celebration of those shows we have assembled a small sampling of their work.

Join us on November 18 for a reception to celebrate the arrival of a two volume collection of all the catalogs from Curatorial Initiative exhibitions from 2006 to 2016. Several of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work and there will be a brief discussion about the program and its resonance in our community.

Fetish: Elegant Objects of Seductive Obsession

May 2-25, 1997

Curated by Linda Hesh

Everyday we see the uniform of black suits and white shirts in downtown DC But one wonders what goes on at night for this same city to (be) able to support so many shops of another type of black clothing. Latex, leather, and vinyl make up a different type of power suit.  Fetish consists of 9 artists from the DC-Baltimore area whose work delves into areas of seductive obsession.  They work in sensual materials not always associated with art: leather, feathers, metal chains, rubber, and gemstones.  Their inspiration comes from the dark side of desire. The work is menacing, enticing, elegant, dangerous, haunting and beautiful. The attention to detail and careful craftsmanship demonstrates how serious each artist is about their private compulsions. The exhibit is accompanied by live performances in the theater each Sunday in May at 3pm.
