Joey Almazora at (e)merge art fair!
Many of the best things around town do not happen on the weekends.
Tonight, two of them happen in close proximity to one another.
Black Whiskey, whose motto is “Don’t ask why, because it just is” hosts the closing party for Transformer Gallery’s Cult Fiction which sends off the mixed media installations of Cheyenne Seeley and Zach Storm.Have I seen them? No. Do I want to? Yes. It doesn’t hurt that both artists will be on hand to talk about their work and that I can listen while enjoying a Poor Man’s Speedball (Budweiser and a Coke). Closing Reception Wednesday, July 24, 2013 from 6-8pm with Artist Talk at 6:30pm, at 1410 14th St., NW.
If you’re looking for something a bit less hectic or the bros are getting you down, scooch on over to Hemphill Fine Arts on the next block, where native Washingtonian, DIYer and ne’er do well ceramicist James Huckenpahler presents “an unreliable slide presentation of dubious scholarly value” titled “Welcome to Chocolate City.” Yowza! Video screening, Wednesday, July 24, 2013 from 6pm to ???, 1515 14th St., NW.
This video of the exhibit “Conjugation of Verb” by Baltimore artist Bernard Hildebrandt as part of the Intersections program is kind of awkward, creepy and trippy. Say no more I’m in love. On view through September 22, 2013.

Friday night got you restless? Looking for something to loosen up with? Then maybe you should head over to Furthermore Print’s Mixtape Mashup.
Tonight’s gathering will showcase some local BFA/MFA talent in a video mash-up format. You can expect a laid back vibe, some drinks, good conversation, and projected images to get the weekend started right.
Friday, March 29, 2013 from 7-10pm at 52 “O” Street, NW, Suite 202B.
"Join Mitra Abbaspour, associate curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, and Carol Huh, Freer|Sackler curator of Shadow Sites, for a discussion inspired by the exhibition. Jananne Al-Ani’s landscape photography and videos, in addition to prints from the Ernst Herzfeldcollection in the F|S Archives, serve as starting points for considering the role of photographic media and archival documents in shaping histories and perceptions of the Middle East.”
Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 7pm, Meyer Auditorium, Freer Gallery.
This talk has finally been rescheduled! According to the museum’s site, in My Own Ai Weiwei, Vito Acconci will discuss “his 2008–2010 collaboration with Ai Weiwei at Para/Site Art Space in Hong Kong.” Who is Vito Acconci? Like Ai Weiwei, he’s multidisciplinary, including talents in photography, video, poetry, architecture and design, and performance. In lieu of Ai Weiwei for any artist talks, at least we get his cool friends.
Thursday, January 17, 2013, 7pm, Ring Auditorium, Hirshhorn.
What can you say about Nam June Paik? You’ve no doubt read my numerous comments over the last 2 years about how his retrospective at the Guggenheim many moons ago was one of my all time favorite museum shows; so there’s that. The new exhibition Nam June Paik: Global Visionary which opened last week at The American Art Museum gives yet another comprehensive look at his body of work (and vision) that escapes neat classification. This exhibition trailer gives just the slightest glimpse into the myriad reasons you should visit this show, but at least a glimpse is better than nothing at all.
Exhibition runs through August 2013. Also be sure to check out the extensive online resources for the Nam June Paik archive, exhibition programming and more at the link above.
