You’ll forgive Curator’s Office’s Andrea Pollan for packing the space so densely: Its current “Mixology II” show of photographic and photo-related works is a benefit for Doctors Without Borders, with 100 percent of the gallery’s sales take going to the charity. There are 34 vivid works by 31 (mostly) area artists, including Kathryn Cornelius, Christopher Saah, and Corcoran favorite Robert Mapplethorpe, and most works are editioned. “It’s my favorite charity,” says Pollan, who admires Doctors Without Borders’ willingness to brave gruesome conditions with only a backpack of supplies, sometimes at the risk of being shot—by bullets, that is, not by film.
THE EXHIBITION IS ON VIEW NOON TO 6 P.M. WEDNESDAY TO SATURDAY OR BY APPOINTMENT TO JULY 24 AT CURATOR’S OFFICE, 1515 14TH ST. NW. FREE. (202) 387-1008.
