Event Details

STABLE founders Caitlin Teal Price, Tim Doud and Linn Meyers, will be in conversation with Vesela Sretenović, senior curator of modern and contemporary art, about collaboration among art organizations. The focus will be on the importance of working together and creating opportunities for artists.

STABLE is a new artist space in the Eckington neighborhood of Washington, DC. STABLE’s mission is strengthening Washington, DC’s contemporary visual arts community by providing affordable and sustainable studio space, fostering an engaged, diverse community, and collaborating with local, national, and international partners to provide programming and exhibition opportunities in Washington, DC.

Inaugurated in 2011, Creative Voices DC brings together the local creative community of Washington, DC, through panel discussions that include artists, collectors, curators, writers, and performers. Participants are encouraged to discuss works and projects in progress, exchange ideas, and share experiences.

The idea for Creative Voices DC aligns closely with what museum founder Duncan Phillips felt to be an important part of his own work as a museum director and the Phillips as an institution: the unwavering appreciation and support of living artists. Phillips believed that “artists speak not only for themselves but for those of us who are intensely interested in other ways of seeing than our own.”
