SHOOTOUT AT THE DADA SALON brings together nine DC-area artists whose work defies expectations, taking the viewer on a winding journey. Surrealism? Dadaism? These local artists march to the beat of their own drummers. In these works, they redefine aesthetics as they so please, confront cultural mores, swallow them, digest them, and defy logic in works that stand in a universe of each artist’s own creation. This diverse collection of 2D and 3D works alludes to reality, but a reality that has been twisted and subjected to each artist’s will. Their unique voices help us reflect on the sometimes harsh realities of our physical world and our ability, through art and humor, to transcend them.
