Power (I Know It When)


The Sparkplug crew has spent the past six months discussing power and our work. I’m so excited for our second show, Power (I Know It When). It’s been a great two years!

Power (I Know It When…) Curated by Lea-Ann Bigelow

October 21 – December 4 @ DC Arts Center

DC Arts Center

Opening Reception: Friday, October 21, 7-9 pm Artist Talk: Thursday, November 17, 7:30 pm Happy Hour: Wednesday, November 30, 6-8 pm Closing Reception: Sunday, December 4 5 pm

Sparkplug’s nine members will share works exploring the dynamics, dimensions, and implications of power (and empowerment) in its many forms. Political power. Physical power. Spiritual power. Technological power. Psychological, sensual and – pulsing throughout – creative power. A phenomenon with strong and conflicting connotations, power can be admired, accessed, amassed, relinquished, feared or confronted. But it is not in the nature of power to be ignored. For the artists of Sparkplug, a sense of personal urgency and preoccupation with what it means to live in America, now, has guided their interrogations of power.

Hope you can see the show!
