DAVID AMOROSO: DELICATE/VIOLENT (DELICADO/VIOLENTO)

Free Opening Reception Fri Jan 25 / 6-10pm

WED JAN 9 - SAT MAR 16
FREE
Mezzanine Gallery

Delicate/Violent (Delicado/Violento) features a series of portraits by contemporary artist David Amoroso of local rappers and reggaetoneros depicted in violent postures juxtaposed against delicate backgrounds. These two extremes seem obvious at first glance, but the more a viewer studies the artwork, the more they can evaluate their own paradigms as they relate to the theme of the exhibit. The exhibit's opening reception included a free Rappers and Reggaetoneros music showcase by some of the most exciting new and established rappers and reggaetoneros of the underground DC Latino music scene. Reggaeton is a Caribbean fusion of hip hop with Latin timbres. The performances centered on the Delicate/Violent themes presented in the exhibit through insightful and thought-provoking lyrics, street style and attitude.
