Transience

to May 8

Transience

This 3 day gallery event will address gentrification, displacement, liminal and transitional spaces. Moving, waiting, changing, sustaining, places that offer us public and private platforms to interact with movement and flux. Artists involved have been asked to respond with work that addresses these in-between spaces, whether they relate to physical location, memory, time, or the ethereal.

Friday, May 6th-Sunday May 8th

Biophilia

The biophilia hypothesis suggests that there is an instinctive bond between human beings and other living systems.

Lion's Main hosted Biophilia in Georgetown in the summer of '15 as a fundraising party for our next show, Erasure. It was a magical night featuring a garden installation by Olivia Greene, live dj's, and a photo booth. We also debuted the 'Biophilia' Zine, which is available online. The party theme and zine entries were inspired by the following definition:
