Subversive Nature Show Open and Russell Biles Artist Talk at District Clay

October 19, 2019  |  6PM - 8PM
District Clay  |  2414 Douglas Street NE, Washington, DC

District Clay invites you to a show of intriguing work by Russell Biles, a South Carolina ceramic artist who plumbs his own subversive impulses to create works that call for us to think deeply, reach out to those around us and act as communities to better the world around us.In a major new work - Eagle Has Landed (400 Years of Occupation) - Biles casts a hard look at our domination of the natural world and asks us as a society to consider anew both the costs and consequences.

Using two striking installations, Biles’ VOTE and GIVE pieces speak both to the power of individuals and of people coming together. Biles vividly illustrates why acting for the common good is sometimes the greatest gift an individual possesses.

In keeping with Biles’ work as a call to action:
District Clay will be holding a blood drive and Biles is donating a small figurine from his GIVE piece to each person who gives blood.
District Clay will donate 25% from the sale of each political figurine from Biles' VOTE piece to a political action group

Doors open 6 pm, artist talk, 6:30 pm.
Light refreshment served.
Parking available directly in front of the Off the Beaten Track Warehouse
