The Collaborative | Doing The Work

May 13, 2023 - August 5, 2023

Ara Koh, Core Samples, 2020, fired clay.

The Kreeger Museum and Hamiltonian Artists are pleased to present Doing The Work, featuring Kyrae Dawaun, Cecilia Kim, Ara Koh, Samera Paz, and Matthew Russo. On view at The Kreeger Museum May 13 through August 5, 2023, the group exhibition will present new and existing works created by the cohort of 2021-2023 Hamiltonian Artists Fellows.

There are several pockets of contemporary discourse—from social justice to mental health—in which the question often arises: “what does doing The Work look like?” In this group exhibition that includes photos, sculpture, drawings, and video, “The Work” is both personal and collective, theoretical and tangible. It takes shape in various forms, such as domestic labor, self reflection, and methodical construction. Rather than focusing on end results, each piece is evocative of progression, calling attention to the patience, play, and serendipity that occurs within periods of growth and development. In Doing The Work, two fundamental truths emerge at the fore; the work looks different for each of us, and there is always more to be done.

This exhibition is presented under The Collaborative, a program developed by The Kreeger Museum in 2021 to support Washington-area artists.

Presented in collaboration with Hamiltonian Artists.
Curated by Anisa Olufemi.
