Artisphere, Washington Project for the Arts (WPA), and Washington Sculptors Group (WSG) joined forces for Contain, Maintain, Sustain on view in Artisphere’s Terrace and Works-in-Progress galleries from May 19 through July 17, 2011. Contain, Maintain, Sustain is a group exhibition which takes stock of the ways in which concerns around sustainability are being articulated and visualized by contemporary artists today. Curators Welmoed Laanstra, Sara Reisman, and Ernesto Santalla selected a combination of 24 local and international artists to activate and complicate the local/global dynamic that has historically framed ideas about reuse and conservation of environmental resources.
