And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt
Dafna Steinberg
May 4 – June 9, 2018
[Washington, DC] Dafna Steinberg’s work spans a variety of mediums, including photography, video, collage, installation and performance. She incorporates themes that relate to the experiences of women, especially relationships and understanding men and women.
And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirtruns from May 4 – June 9, 2018 in Vivid Gallery (2208 Martin Luther King Jr Ave SE, Washington DC 20020) The opening reception will be held on May 4 from 6-9PM, and is free and open to the public. An artist talk will take place on June 2 from 2-4PM. Gallery hours are Wednesday – Saturday 12-7PM and by appointment. 
And All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt began while Steinberg was an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center in 2016. Though a catalyst for the project was a personal trauma she had experienced just before the residency, the work evolved into an emotional response to the current political and cultural climate regarding objectification of the female body, reproductive rights, sexual assault, and the continuous attacks on a woman’s right to be autonomous.
Dafna Steinberg is a native of Washington, DC. A graduate of Hampshire College, the International Center of Photography, and Goldsmith University of London, she has exhibited and curated challenging thematic shows in America and abroad. With an extensive resume, Steinberg is currently an adjunct faculty member at Northern Virginia Community College.
Vivid Gallery is an exhibition space that opened in 2010, originally located inside the Anacostia Arts Center, Vivid Gallery has relocated to 2208 Martin Luther King Jr Ave. and remains a project of ARCH, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the creative economy of Historic Anacostia.

Storytelling Classes at Anacostia Arts Center

This class runs from Thursday May 2 through May 30 from 7-10pm and is for residents of Wards 7 and 8 ONLY.
 
We are excited to return to the Anacostia Arts Center on MAY 2 to bring Story District’s popular five-week storytelling intensive to residents of Wards 7 and 8.  In this interactive class, you’ll learn the fundamentals of good storytelling and work on a story of your own over the course of the program in preparation for a final public performance. We will take you step-by-step through the process of how to identify and talk about meaningful narrative events in your life in a way that is entertaining and inspiring to the audience. These stories are personal, heartfelt, and demand that the storyteller be honest with yourself and an audience.
Thanks to a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, this class can be offered free to residents of Wards 7 and 8. A $100 registration fee is required to hold a space in the class. Upon succesful completion of the class, this registration fee will be automatically refunded in full. We do this because it’s important that we have a group that is committed to taking the whole course.  While each individual will get something out of this process, the real magic happens within the dynamics of the group — one that is collaborative, supportive, and committed to everyone’s success. Each class builds upon the previous one and there is limited space.
