There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
TO NOV. 4
Rock-related art things seem to be the specialty at Govinda Gallery, and music is indeed a central theme for photographers Antonia Tricarico, Lely Constantinople, and Cynthia Connolly. But for the almost-weeklong stint of “Itinerant,” the photographers are asking more fundamental questions and pushing the rock connection deep into the background. Through images from their travels, Tricarico, Constantinople, and Connolly seek to define the term “itinerant”: What does it mean to travel from place to place? For Tricarico, it’s about people and places: a gathering of Italian men (pictured), a naked woman in an empty bathtub, an antique car in Old Havana, a busted-up terrace in Potenza, Italy. Constantinople answers with dark, casual portraits of men in bars, Sicilian street scenes, sidewalk graffiti in Montego Bay, and a Greek watchmaker hunched over his work. And for Connolly, it’s as much about solitude and searching as it is about travel: portraits of lonely iceboxes, road signs, and deserted train tracks. At the exhibit’s opening, indie-rocker Lois will round out the itinerant idealshe’ll be busking outside the gallery. Her performance will surely be photographed. The exhibit is on view from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday, to Sunday, Nov. 4, at Govinda Gallery, 1227 34th St. NW. Free. (202) 333-1180. (Colin Bane)
