Native Gardens
by Karen Zacarías
directed by Kevin Dreyer

Good fences make good neighbors…or do they?  A good-natured comedy about a backyard border wall.

When Pablo and Tania buy a house in an historic Washington, D.C. neighborhood, they’re welcomed warmly by nextdoor neighbors Frank and Virginia. But soon the couples are embroiled in a dispute over their backyard property line that threatens to uproot Frank’s meticulously cultivated garden and forces both sides to confront deeply ingrained notions of race, class, and privilege.…

Exhibition: "Money Worries"

(part of a series)

Location: Snite Museum of Art

O’Shaughnessy Galleries II & III

January 21 through March 25, 2018

Money is a frequent source of anxiety and stress in our daily lives. How do we get it? How do we keep it? What do we do with it once we have it? Bank notes are fundamentally promissory notes that generate and structure interpersonal and social relations. How does that affect our understanding of our own self-worth, the value we place on others, and our relationships to them? The “flip-side” of making value is making inequality. This exhibition aims to disrupt visitors’ received attitudes toward money, wealth, and poverty by examining various forms of antique and modern currency and anachronistic juxtapositions of historical and contemporary depictions in art of financial transactions, allegories, and portraits. Visitors will also have an opportunity to play digital or board games that challenge assumptions of “fairness” both in the artificial environment of the game and in life.
