Description

Spoken For employs text fragments selected from across DC for their capacity to suggest a meaning other than the author’s original intention. A fish market stall proudly boasts that ‘Our Crabs Have No Sand’ and a derelict shop bears the peeling legend ‘Rescue Workers’, but divorced from their context and placed into the shadow of the Washington Monument these disposable snippets of text assume new meanings more reminiscent of protest and political activism.

---- March 20 - April 27 ---- The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities' 5x5 project will exhibit 25 ground-breaking public art installations commissioned by artists from around the world.
