"Hemphill"

Hemphill’s Artist-Citizen. (Courtesy of Hemphill)

Hemphill, 14th Street’s contemporary cornerstone for great art and community awareness, is celebrating their 20th anniversary of doing artsy good for their neighborhood.

This particular exhibition is almost homage to their purpose — to explain to the media and greater community that artists are not simply “possessed by reckless freedom and lacking accountability”; that in fact artists can be and almost always are productive, introspective and forward thinking. To sum it up, artists are good citizens. And Hemphill’s penned the name, “Artist-Citizen,” just for this special breed.

The exhibition’s purpose is honing in on the specific situations that effect and influence artist-citizens living and working in DC. We see Franz Jantzen’s mundane moments in a local barber shop, video art profiling friends and family shot by Larry Cook, Mingering Mike’s mixed media portraits and quick shots of sturdy, geometric buildings taken by Colby Caldwell.

These are simple, fleeting snapshots of the beautiful, the ugly, the boring: the artist-citizen’s daily life in the district.

The show features Colby Caldwell, Larry Cook, Max Hirshfeld, James Huckenpahler, Franz Jantzen, free[space]collective, Mingering Mike, Anne Rowland, Julie Wolfe, and Workingman Collective. The show opened June 5 and will run through July 27.

Bringing the Art in DC to you. – Shira Karsen

"performance"

Greenway and Omari. (Image from Hemphill Fine Arts website)

This Wednesday evening, Hemphill Fine Arts will host a reception and performance by acclaimed tabla player Masood Omari and conceptual artist Abigail Adams Greenway.

The tabla is a percussion instrument consisting of two drums: one larger drum on the left, the bayan, and one smaller drum on the right, the dahina. It originated around 5,000 years ago in Northern India, and is now used in Hindustani music throughout southern Asia and Arab-speaking countries.

Omari and Greenway will play an original composition Omari wrote for the event. The piece combines elements from Western music and the classic style typically associated with tabla.

The performance is in conjunction with the current exhibition at Hemphill, “Rewilding,” by Julie Wolfe. Many of her works touch on themes such as “the fluid interdependence of life” and the interactions between humans and nature. The artist abandons the “anthropocentric viewpoint,” in which humans are the most important entity on earth, and encourages the viewer to do so as well.

The Details

  • Where: Hemphill Fine Arts, 1515 14th Street NW, #300
  • When: Wednesday, April 24, 6:30 to 8:30 pm

There is no registration or fee required to attend to the event, but seating is first-come, first-served.
