"TRACES" Exhibition at The Kreeger Museum
Thrilled to participate in this group show at this historical institution. Here follow and little bit about the show---"The Kreeger Museum is pleased to present TRACES, an exhibition featuring regional artists Billy Friebele, Roxana Alger Geffen, Rania Hassan, Sebastian Martorana, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Antonio McAfee, Brandon Morse, and Johab Silva. Guest curated by Sarah Tanguy, the show explores how the past evokes shifting memories while suggesting new and present narratives. Rich in representation and abstraction, TRACES encompasses painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, sound, and video, and includes several site-responsive installations. As the artists dialogue with their source materials, they mine the many meanings of “trace” as noun and verb, and engage the themes of displacement, connectivity and transformation. Variously inspired by personal and cultural history, the natural and built environments, and the human condition, they offer an impassioned take on the issues of the day and suggest possible futures to come."

New flatfiles available at Transformer Gallery
Respost from Transfomers Gallery Instagram (@transformerdc) Featuring a new artist and their artwork for purchase in our FlatFile collection! This week we’re highlighting works by Johab Silva (@johabsilva) • Silva’s “Land Survey” series depict his interest in environmental issues, inspired by his personal experience observing the Amazon rainforest and the devastating impacts of deforestation. Using satellite and topographic images, Silva highlights, in blue, portions of the rainforest that are now gone as a result of illegal deforestation. Inspired by the blue of the ocean, Silva intentionally highlights these sections in color, in hopes that water will bring life again into a lifeless place. • Johab is a DC-based artist and a founding member of the Kicker Collective. Johab’s work is included in the group exhibition, "TRACES," presented by The Kreeger Museum and curated by Sarah Tanguy (@sarahtanguyart). The exhibition explores how the past evokes shifting memories while suggesting new and presenting narratives. Listen to Johab and fellow participating artists discuss their works in an online talk on November 12th. • Check out Johab’s “Land Survey” series and so many more artists’ works, all available for purchase through our online shop! • Image: “Like a Blue Land-Variation no 1, 2019, Tempra on paper
