June 2012


Hamiltonian Gallery is pleased to present the third edition of Call + Response, a collaborative exhibition between writers and artists. This exhibition will run from June 2nd – June 16th, 2012.

Call + Response is an annual art show pairing writers and artists to create new works with a twist. Five writers each contribute a call-a short piece of fiction or poetry-and five artists each create a new installation piece in response to one call. For the first time, this year’s writers will view the artworks prior to the show’s opening and respond in some way, possibly through creation, revision, or reflection, to the responses.

The pairings (writer + artist):

Kyle Dargan (poetry) and Mia Feuer (sculpture)

Michael Kimball (fiction) and Trevor Young (painting)

Reb Livingston (poetry) and Matthew Mann (painting)

Danielle Evans (fiction) and Lisa Marie Thalhammer (painting)  

Amber Sparks (fiction) and YAY Team (video)

Call + Response is co-curated by William John Bert and Kira Wisniewski. 

Join us for the opening of Call + Response on June 2, 2012, from 7-9 p.m., at Hamiltonian Gallery, 1353 U St. NW. Drinks courtesy of Chocolate City Beer. It will be preceded by a panel discussion with the artists and writers starting at 6 p.m.
