Reception & Artist Talk: October 9th @ 7pm

“The pandemic gave my mother and I time to talk about our traumas. I felt claustrophobic and isolated – a combination previously real, while hiking Montserrat. I began painting the mountain in acrylic on panel and left the sky empty. Mountains take on bruises, to examine domestic violence, bared strength, isolation.” – Elizabeth Ashe

Concrete Dreams

by Monica Jahan Bose

with Robin Bell and Maps Glover

On View: May 20 – 23, 2021 (front exterior of DC Arts Center)
Outdoor Projections: May 20 – 22nd, 2021 Sundown – 10pm
Poetry Slam: May 22nd, 2021 at 7pm

Bangladeshi-American artist and climate activist Monica Jahan Bose has led the CONCRETE
DREAMS project over the last eight months and will present the culminating
installation outside the DC Arts Center from May 20-23, 2021. CONCRETE DREAMS is a
temporary public art project featuring an installation and livestream of communitysourced
poetry on saris, mini movable sculptures, and projections.

In CONCRETE DREAMS, Bose has collaborated with artist and filmmaker Robin Bell, artist Maps
Glover, and residents of DC and Katakhali Village, Bangladesh, Bose’s ancestral village.
Diverse community members in DC and Bangladesh connected during the pandemic
through safe online and outdoor art and poetry workshops on the theme of the
pandemic and the intersection of climate, racial, gender, and economic injustice.
“Concrete poetry” refers to poetry that is drawn or arranged as a design on the page.
CONCRETE DREAMS uses concrete poetry and printmaking to highlight the dreams and
aspirations of residents of DC and Katakhali towards a sustainable and just future. The
poetry is inscribed on saris, on the building through a light installation, and on small
plaster sculptures in the form of “steles.” The project enhances and merges with the
street energy, night life, and restaurants in Adams Morgan, DC, including the Streatery
program moving restaurants into the street.

In honor of AAPI Heritage month, CONCRETE DREAMS links communities in solidarity
from DC to Asia. CONCRETE DREAMS is funded by the DC Commission on the Arts and
Humanities’ Public Art Building Communities Grant Program. It is part of the ongoing
STORYTELLING WITH SARIS climate justice art project.

Mourning

by Maggie Golightly Haslam

On View: March 20 – May 30, 2021 (click here to schedule a viewing!)

Virtual Artist Talk: April 22nd @ 6pm – Did you not make it to the Artist Talk? Don’t worry we recorded it so that you would not miss out!! Click here to view.

 

2020 was a year filled with more than words can express. We suffered individually, in our families, as communities and worldwide. We were isolated and confined, broken and infected, judged and criticized. Despite 2020 being a horrific year, human loss is unfortunately not confined to that year alone. Tragically, humans are very familiar with the act of mourning.

Partnering with the DC Arts Center and community members, artist Maggie Golightly Haslam presents a memorial to grief. The artist collected responses to the question “who do you mourn?”. Each response was hand-stamped onto monolith-like plaques made from recycled paper and plastics collected throughout the year 2020. The resulting body of work is a monument to loss and a memory of those we cherish, built with hope and unity.

Virtual artist talk: May 27th @ 6pm

Ace is a small thing; the dictionary uses “pip” to define it. An Ace in a card game is the smallest, yet most powerful card. In card games, some use a sleight of hand to slip something in without others seeing. In card games, some use a sleight of hand to slip something in without others seeing. These paintings are amalgamations of pips and patterns, examples of environmental interaction both internal and external — micro and macro— that operate as an avenue to the Ace of Hearts.
