A conversation with Annabel Daou

Join artist Annabel Daou and Arlington Arts Center's curator of exhibitions Blair Murphy for a conversation in conjunction with Global Spotlight: Annabel Daou, on view at AAC through March 26. The works in the exhibition – A Year Like Any Other (2020), and chou hayda / if you only knew (2017-2018) – offer meditations on the human relationship to time and its passage, particularly in periods of crisis. In this conversation, the artist will discuss these pieces and her practice more broadly, giving the audience a wider perspective on her work.

We are so excited that we are finally moving back into TJ's theatre for our first indoor production in... well... a while.

TAP and LTA's production of A Night of One Acts is quickly approaching! We are so excited about premiering these brand new plays! But, did you know you could see the show for free?! Wondering how? It's easy, volunteer with TAP!

Choose the opportunity that's right for you:

Work the box office: Each performance requires two people to work the box office and we are looking to train some newcomers. The good news? Because there's always two people, you're never alone! If you have not helped with our box office before or would like a refresher, please let me know and I will help get you trained.

Usher: This may just be our easiest volunteer opportunity (shhh, don't tell!). You'll work before the show starts to help patrons check their tickets and find their seats.

Interested? For more information or questions about either of these volunteer opportunities, please contact Brittany at [email protected]

Paul Rucker is a multimedia visual artist, composer, and musician. His practice often integrates live performance, original musical compositions, and visual art installation. For nearly two decades, Rucker has used his own brand of art-making as a social practice, which illuminates the legacy of enslavement in America and its relationship to the current socio-political moment.

Here is something that came up on the Kojo show recently: An artist without studio space is a "former artist." Art creation space has been neglected in DC Metro area cultural plans. DC government has been more concerned with arts presentation space, which now serves touring artists from elsewhere. 3 decades of DC cultural policy has effectively exported DC artists and imported artists from other jurisdictions. Mike Licht – Washington DC
Those trips to San Francisco and Ashland were wonderful for all of us. Awards for regional theater were hung with pride in the Ashland lobby. Our annual trips there in May of each school year were financed by hard- working students, who paid only for their own food. Many equity actors performed excellent plays, both Shakespeare and contemporary productions. I have fond memories of those artistic adventures too. Thanks,Carlos, for reminding me of those enjoyable times. Diane Howard
