“I Love to Hate You”: an exhibition by Damon Arhos (MFAST ’17) at IA&A at Hillyer, Washington DC

Damon Arhos’ installation I Love To Hate You seeks to expose the destructive nature of prejudice using the artist’s identity as a gay American as its frame. What does it mean to concurrently love and hate something? To experience physical and emotional attraction and repulsion at the same time? How is it confusing to be affirmed and reviled? This disorienting state of affairs embodies the three artworks that comprise his installation: The Antidote, Yesterday’s 30, and Trapped.

This exhibition is on view from August 3 – September 2, 2018 with an opening reception from 6 -9 pm on Friday, August 3. An artist talk will take place from 6:30 – 8pm on Wednesday, August 8.

IA&A at Hillyer is located at 9 Hillyer Court NW in Washington, DC.

Sarabel Santos (MFAST ’19) featured in “Puerto Rico Under Water” at the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race at Columbia University

“Puerto Rico Under Water” features the work of five Puerto Rican artists reflecting on the island’s debt crisis and its consequences, including mass migration, vulnerable infrastructure, and increased levels of personal insecurity. At the same time, the work serves as site of memory, humor, and hope as Puerto Ricans rebuild not only homes but a collective future.
