Nov. 6-Feb. 23, 2013: Mia Feuer: An Unkindness
It’s generally a bad idea to run or rollerblade indoors, but now through February 23 you can glide around a synthetic ice skating rink in the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s Rotunda as part of a new exhibit. Mia Feuer: An Unkindness explores issues of oil production and consumption with site-specific installations that fuse imagery from the Arctic Circle, the Suez Canal and Canadian tar sand sites with the artist’s research into ecological systems around the world. Feuer is the first D.C.-based artist to have her work featured in NOW at the Corcoran, a contemporary art program dedicated to exhibits and performances by emerging and mid-career artists.
