Ellen Harvey: The Alien’s Guide to the Ruins of Washington, D.C.
July 3–October 6, 2013
Ellen Harvey’s new project is a glimpse into a distant future in which aliens, enamored of classical architecture, have turned the uninhabited Earth into a prime tourist destination. Including a printed guide to the ruins of Washington, D.C., an alien souvenir stand, and the very latest in neoclassical spaceship design, the exhibition slyly explores cross-cultural misunderstandings and the language of power.
Mia Feuer: An Unkindness
November 2, 2013–February 23, 2014
Mia Feuer’s sculptural installations explore the relationships between the built landscape, environmental catastrophe, and the physical and social tensions of violated spaces. Inspired by trips to the Canadian tar sands and her own childhood experiences, Feuer’s upcoming exhibition at the Corcoran, titled An Unkindness, is a haunting vision of nature consumed, twisted, and transformed by human need. The exhibition features three new site-specific installations, including a skating rink and field of synthetic black wheat. “An unkindness,” which refers to a gathering of ravens, is one of the exhibition’s central images.
