Art in Washington DC




Greetings from Washington DC,
Immersed in the humid weather of Washington, went to many museums. These photos are from the Hirshorn show entitled Suprasensorial. The show features large scale light installations from 5 South American artists.
Lucio Fontana, Julio le Parc, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Jesus Rafael Soto and Helio Oiticica representing Argentina, Venezuela and Brazil. Most of the installations were meant to be permanent, but due to lack of funding or location were not.
This show is about interacting with light as a body as most installations are a walk thru experience. It ‘s all about perception.
If in Washington DC, stop by the Hirshorn.

There is a wonderful show about light.

About ruthoffen

Created by, Ruth Offen the founder/director of WaterWorks Gallery, a gallery opened in 1985 to showcase contemporary artists and jewellers that live and work in the Pacific Northwest. The gallery is on an San Juan Island in the Salish Sea.[ North Puget Sound] Pretty amazing place. While continuing to curate the gallery after 33 years, I'm decided to spend more time enjoying life by traveling, creating art with photography and dancing tango. Over many decades of amassing a personal art collection, now the process of downsizing is becoming a reality. How do we have more with less? Staying true to the motto, unencumbered by our possessions and not burdening our children with our stuff. This next process will take patience and courage.
