Hamiltonian Gallery opened their newest exhibit on Saturday night, Call + Response, which paired DC writers with DC visual artists to create the exhibition. The concept: authors produced an “on call” written work, and in response, the artists created an installation piece. Then, the authors wrote another work in response to the visual art. Co-curated by William John Bert and Kira Wisniewski, and the Call + Response pairings are: Kyle Dargan (poetry) and Mia Feuer (sculpture), Michael Kimball (fiction) and Trevor Young (painting), Reb Livingston (poetry) and Matthew Mann (painting), Amber Sparks (fiction) and YAY Team (video), Danielle Evans (fiction) + Lisa Marie Thalhammer (painting). The concept of the show is compelling and the contributions of the artists and authors are overall nuanced and insightful. – Rachel Eisley http://www.brightestyoungthings.com/articles/photos-call-response-hamiltonian-gallery.htm
