IMMERSION: Feminicity by Olivia Tripp Morrow
Exhibition: July 29 – September 16, 2016
Artist Reception: July 29, 6 – 9 pm | Closing Reception: September 16, 6 – 9 pm
IMMERSION is an interactive, multimedia installation series that will be held in 3 locations around Historic Anacostia neighborhood and offer visitors the chance to touch, create, contribute, and share. The four selected artists-in-residence will present projects that will change and grow over time offering visitors memorable, hands-on experiences.
In Feminicity, Olivia Tripp Morrow uses layers of textiles imbued with meaning from the women who donated them, to create a winding installation of colorful, abstract sculptures. These pieces literally and figuratively wrap individual experiences into a beautiful collective one. Over the course of the exhibition, the environment will grow, change, and be re-arranged.
The artist invites donations from women (or anyone who identifies as a woman) of textiles (including clothing and linens)during her artist hours.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 7 pm
Artist Hours: Thursdays 10 am – 2 pm; Saturdays 2 – 6 pm; Sundays 10 am – 2 pm
IMMERSION is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
