NOW at the Corcoran: Exhibitions
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 new project for the Corcoran is a haunting vision of nature consumed, transformed, and twisted by human need. Inspired by the artist’s experiences in landscapes of oil production, An Unkindness explores the relationships between failed infrastructure, the natural world, and environmental catastrophe. Feuer is the first Washington, D.C.-based artist to be featured in a NOW at the Corcoran exhibition.
