The following is a press release from artists Absurdly Well and Esteban Whiteside.
Washington, D.C.—10 blocks from the Capitol! The most highly-anticipated joint show from the DMV’s most prolific artists!
Join us March 8th in Eastern Market at The Fridge Gallery! Political street artist Absurdly Well and artist Esteban Whiteside come together in their first joint art exhibition to address social circumstances that galvanize today’s urban society.
Gentrification and displacement is at an all-time high in major cities in the nation. The lack of financial, domestic and democratic safety has been taking a toll on the poor and middle class for years. Artists also have been feeling the pinch of big business moving in Washington. With more and more luxury condominiums being built & rising rents, artist spaces have been shutting down. These factors consequentially puts this “broken safety” in the cross-hairs of many U.S. citizens.
Collectors and admirers of Absurdly Well & Esteban will be amazed by the ambitious size of art and spanning subject-matter. Each piece is a unique perspective on and during the Trump regime from the most prolific artist-activists. Most pieces are never-before-seen.
This exhibition will be up until March 31st and there will be programming and artists talks throughout the month by both artists.
Original works, prints, street posters, and other merchandise will be available for sale.
