Washington Project for the Arts release
Other Worlds, Other Stories

Artists conquer and contemplate outer space in the newest WPA exhibition.

January 9 - February 20, 2015
Washington Project for the Arts
Washington, DC

Other Worlds, Other Stories features the work of ten contemporary artists from the District and elsewhere who use the trope of space exploration as though it was a funhouse mirror — casting unfamiliar reflections on American dreams of escape, conquest, and adventure.

The artworks range from traditional painted images of distant worlds; to works of historical fiction illustrated with digital photography and collage; to interactive live performances in a test kitchen for astronauts. Together, they open a conversation about the heady intermingling of fantasy, art, and science that kicked off the space race in the twentieth century and still defines the U.S. space program today.

Exhibited artists include: Adam Fung, Felipe Goncalves, Gray Lamb, Casey Johnson, Heidi Neilson and Douglas Paulson, Roxana Pérez-Méndez, Jefferson Pinder, Michael A. Robinson, Steve Strawn, and Lucy West.
