But THEARC Theater has opened a door for the arts in the city's less heralded wards.

Gallery Talk with Richard Gordon

Gallery Talk with Richard Gordon

During the 1970s, artist Richard Gordon created Meta Photographs, a book and portfolio that explores the self-referential nature of photography in a series of ironic, humorous scenes. Comprised of 47 photographs that refer to other images, to the camera, or to the act of looking, Meta Photographs confirms the significance of photography in American culture. Join Richard Gordon as he reflects on these photographs on view in the gallery. For more information and to register, please visit https://getinvolved.corcoran.org/richardgordonmetaphotographs.
