about the show:
artists rachel schmidt, johab silva, and levester williams explore the concept of space, real and imagined, and how it can define, confine or spark transformation. the works exhibited respond to changing or unfamiliar landscapes, restrictive environments, population density and adapting to multiple facets of modernity.
Inspired by the legacy of Benjamin Banneker, Quota will collaborate with artist Alejandro Pintado to design a temporary public art installation at the Banneker Park/10th Street Overlook. The site was constructed in 1971 as the first parcel of public land commemorating an African-American in the nation’s capital. Scheduled for the Fall of 2016, the project will incorporate elements from a range of disciplines, including astronomy, city planning, and the study of time – all cornerstones of Banneker’s career and contributions. Working with DC-based design and architecture students, the artist will install an imagined constellation around the park with dozens of sculptural objects that will be visible night and day.
