The Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery is finding new ways to infuse art into your daily grind. Currently undergoing renovations and located at 1632 U St. NW, the space has found itself improvising. You won’t find any “Whoops! Excuse our mess!” signs displayed in the windows. Instead the Gallery has invited area installation artists to attack transition by displaying “In-Flux” mini-exhibitions in the gallery window. It’s a nice oh-come-hither gesture before the grand reveal and relaunch of the space next Friday.
Peter Gordon’s eco-installation “File>Print” will remain on display until Oct.12. Matt Hollis (whose recent installation was soundtracked by the Carribean) preceded him and gallery director Brooke Seidelmann says Frank Adams is slated to install a “moving graphite drawing,” in the space. Ehh? We’re not sure what that will look like either, but it sure does sound cool. Siedelmann wants to continue the project with a rotating cycle of artists through December.
The Gallery is reopening Oct. 15th with a new in-house exhibit, “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence: Identity Writ Large,” showcasing contrasting portraits of members involved in the drag queen social activist group of the same name.
