The Week Ahead…& Some Photos from the Past Week

Today marked the advent of the Year of the Rabbit in the Chinese Lunar New Year.  The Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of Washington, DC in partnership with the DC Mayor’s Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs organized the annual parade in China Town.

Sunday night, reflected light gave a different look to the Eastern Market Metro Plaza…

and to the Plaza’s Northeast Quadrant where lies the children’s playground. 

CHC found Triple Candie working on a new installation today at their exhibit space in the former Li’l Pub at 655 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.  Triple Candie is a research-oriented curatorial agency run by art historian co-founders Shelly Bancroft and Peter Nesbett, pictured above.  Their purpose is to create alternative exhibition methods making that the object of critical focus rather than what is displayed (which for the most part does not include original artworks).  Go deeper here:

CHC returned later in the day to photograph the latest “curatorial riddle” installation in the 22 square foot space.  The first puzzling assemblage appeared in the space in December, 2021.    

Here’s a detail of the piece which may reference a new documentary on the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last Friday.  Here’s a link to the AP News story:
