Glad I got a chance to check out the homie Munch Joseph’s (CEO of HedRush Agency) show “Is Separate Ever Equal?” at DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’ space in their HQ. In fact, it was too important of a show not to miss. The concept was Joseph curating a show centered around the 1954 Supreme Court case of Brown v. Board of Education. Five separate cases representing five jurisdictions across our nation were consolidated under one, each calling for gross societal inequities to be resolved.
Munch selected a range of contemporary artists who addressed these and other questions related to this topic. Visual art, public programming, thematic live performances and a series of lectures and demonstrations. To check out some of the works click Read the rest of this entry

The closing reception for CHAMBERS was, hands down, one of the best closing receptions that I’ve had the pleasure of being apart of and most definitely ended our exhibition in proper form. The Instant Vintage vinyl record fair, featuring some of the areas finest vinyl record collectors, and producer showcase, featuring some DC’s most notable beat-smiths making Wu-Tang inspired beats, served as perfect complements to what many guests considered as a more than memorable night. Thank you to everyone who attended, salute to all of those that helped spread the word, and props to our partners at ART WHINO and BLIND WHINO for helping to make this happen. Stay tuned for more is all I’m gonna say…
