Opening day exhibition hours in coordination with DC Art Studios Open Studios, December 9, 12-5pm

Body Map Body considers ways that bodies travel and cross terrains, and how landscapes can take on human form. When we are oriented, we're certain about our self, our direction, our past. But what do we find when we're disoriented? This exhibition shows some things that might happen when the map is abstract, when locations meld, when the body smears out of place, when our placement is just a memory.

Four of the artists in Body Map Body work out of DC Art Studios around the corner from Rhizome at 6925 Willow St NW: Rives Wiley, Renée Regan, Alanna Reeves, and Kristina King. The fifth artist is Eames Armstrong, who organized this exhibition.

About DC Art Studios: DC Arts Studios is a member-run arts organization providing studio spaces for our member artists of all disciplines, creatives agencies, and arts organizations so that they can have sustainable careers in the DC Metro Area. They also provide exhibition opportunities and professional support, and foster connections between member artists so that they can collaborate and grow in their craft, in the true spirit of an artist co-op. DC Arts Studios was established in 1979 as an artist co-op under the name A. Salon, Ltd. by George Koch (who later went on to found Artomatic). The organization hosted affordable arts studios in three locations in DC: Downtown, Georgetown, and Takoma. The Takoma building was acquired in 1985 and has been a flashpoint for artists of all disciplines ever since.
