The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery presents rotating exhibitions of notable art with a concentration on the artists of Washington, DC; alumni of the George Washington University; and art from and related to the GW Collection.
The large-scale sculpture, Ghost Dance, by the artist Robert Stackhouse was gifted to the George Washington University as part of the Corcoran Study Collection in 2014. The Stackhouse work is a focal point for a juried exhibition of sculptural works by members of the Washington Sculptors Group that celebrate similar themes of renewal, rebirth, and sustainability explored in the Ghost Dance piece.
Andy Warhol's photographs reflect his daily life including his travels, romantic partners, social outings, inanimate objects and preparations for commissioned portraits. This exhibition focuses on the concept of the Polaroid and black and white photographs by Warhol in the GW Collection. If read as mirrors to Warhol’s internal struggles they give insight into his feelings about being a famous and profitable artist, struggles with his sexuality and his friendships.
An exhibition commemorating the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 national lockdown, showcasing 27 works from the Corcoran Study Collection curated and researched by MA Exhibition Design class of 2022, Dr. Lisa Lipinksi's "History of Exhibitions". Through the lens of finding and uplifting community in times of isolation, the show follows eight themes, each linked to calls-to-actions, social justice organizations, and mutual aid funds, hoping to uplift these missions with larger audiences and community.
This exhibition seeks to show many facets of home through photographic works recently returned to the Corcoran Flagg Building from works exploring Washington, D.C., the city many of us call home, to more intangible feelings of where we find comfort, to the idea of the Corcoran Flagg Building as a dedicated home for art.
