Vivid Solutions Gallery, Anacostia Arts Center, Washington, DC (July 22, 2017 - September 18, 2017)
Over the course of an eight-week Artist Residency at the Anacostia Arts Center (Washington, DC), Olivia Tripp Morrow transformed the Vivid Solutions Gallery into a colorful, immersive sculptural installation. During this time, women-identifying visitors were invited to donate clothing or other textiles, and to share a story, memory, or personal experience about the item(s) they donated. These textiles became the materials for Morrow's installation: they were cut and torn into strips in the gallery, and then woven by the artist into the chicken wire armatures hanging from the walls and ceilings of the gallery. This residency and solo exhibition was the first iteration of a series called IMMERSION, which was funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
