4 March—4 September 2017
Over the past decade, Theaster Gates has explored the built environment and the power of art and culture to transform experience.
For the second exhibition in the reopened East Building Tower 3 galleries at the National Gallery of Washington, Gates will present a new body of work—The Minor Arts—featuring several pieces created for the Gallery.
The installation will examine how discarded and ordinary objects, including the floor of a Chicago high school gym and the archives of Ebony magazine, acquire value through the stories we tell.
