One Night Stand seeks out vacant lots in the greater Washington DC area and turns them into contemporary art venues for one night. The project team revitalizes the vacant lot, cleans, removes debris and prepares the space for an exhibition that lasts 2-3 hours. Solo, group and site specific installation projects are being planned to take place over the Summer. Most exhibitions will be local emerging artist, but we may throw in a surprise or two.
Our aim is to provide spot exhibitions and involve the neighborhoods we enter. Neighbors are invited to be a part of the transformation and attend the "Opening/Closing" event. In the end, we leave a cleaner and safer lot.
The first event is scheduled for June 11th.
