For fifty years, the Ebony Fashion Fair shaped a new vision of black America through contemporary fashion. This exhibition of stunning ensembles by leading designers tells the story of the fair’s creator Eunice W. Johnson, who overcame racial prejudice to bring global fashion to African-American audiences. Developed by the Chicago History Museum in cooperation with Johnson Publishing Company, LLC, presented by the Costume Council of the Chicago History Museum, and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, D.C.

Photographs by Corcoran School of the Arts and Design student Matailong Du, (MA New Media Photojournalism ’17), artfully document the production of Margin, a dance performed by the Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in October 2016. As the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s first choreographer-in-residence, Dana Tai Soon Burgess (GW Professor of Dance) transformed six portraits from the Smithsonian Institution’s Outwin 2016 American Portraiture Today exhibition into dance. Matailong Du’s captivating photographs portray the movement of the dancers in Margin and their interaction with artwork in the galleries during preparation for their performance. The exhibit also includes statements by Dana Tai Soon Burgess and Amy Henderson, (Historian Emerita, The National Portrait Gallery), documenting the collaboration.

Reflections can be defined in numerous ways, from a physical mirror image to a contemplative thought on the past, to a resemblance to a person, place or thing. Reflections of all kinds, importantly, show us something of ourselves. Photographs from GW's Collection by Andy Warhol, Philippe Halsman, Sally Gall, Louis Faurer, and Louis Stettner as well as selected work from local photographers Jackie Bailey Labovitz, Dave Scavone, and Sandy Sugawara show both physical and ephemeral reflections. The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery has also invited four local photographers – Ken Ashton, Ryder Haske, Dean Kessmann, and Gail Rebhan – to exhibit a recent work alongside an earlier work from the GW Collection and include a written reflection of their own. This project highlights the gallery’s ongoing work with students, faculty and alumni artists. Funding for this exhibition is provided by the Francine Zorn Trachtenberg Photography Fund and the Friends of the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery Image above, right: N. Jay Jaffee, Man With Sun Reflector (East New York), 1952 (print date unknown). Silver print, ed. 18/25, 10 x 8 inches. GW Collection, Gift of Lawrence Benenson, 1982. Now through July 7, 2017 This exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information:
NEXT Thesis Exhibition   ( 12:00 AM Apr 12 - 12:00 AM May 21 )
The NEXT thesis exhibition is the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design's annual celebration of the brilliance and promise of its students. Each degree program at the Corcoran requires students to successfully complete a thesis project and then collaborate with other programs to to present a building-wide exhibition in the Corcoran's many gallery spaces. Theses may take many forms—from written research papers to a series of paintings—they all represent a culmination of a student's learning experiences at the Corcoran and a glimpse of future promise. Students exhibit their theses on the walls of the Corcoran School and present pictorial and oral presentations of their projects to an audience of their peers, faculty and the George Washington University community. Held every spring, NEXT is a dynamic, interactive and innovative thesis show located in the Corcoran's historic Flagg Building. NEXT gives D.C.’s art community the opportunity to see the latest in contemporary art from fresh perspectives. Visitors to NEXT have the unique opportunity to observe thesis critiques and discussions between students and faculty and to gain insight into the visual form-making process. This year's exhibition will be on view April 12 through May 21.
