WASHINGTON — The Corcoran Gallery of Art wraps their exhibit about the D.C. go-go and punk scenes of the 1980s this weekend. Contemporary Wing will continue shining lights on the underground with “Mumbo Sauce.”
Named after the condiment mostly found in and near D.C., the series will feature works from artists mostly found in and near D.C. Participating artists include Cool “Disco” Dan, Mingering Mike, Rosina Teri Memolo, Robin Rose, the Globe Poster Archive, Clark Fox, Cynthia Connolly, Tim Conlon, Richard Colman and more.
Just like the “Pump Me Up” exhibition, this show was co-curated by Roger Gastman, a graffiti artist as a teenager in Bethesda in the early 80s and currently a magazine publisher, documentarian and author. For this show he was joined by Lauren Gentile, owner of the Contemporary Wing gallery.
“Mumbo Sauce” opens Friday, April 5 and continues through Sunday, April 21. This run will be at 906 H Street, NE. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and by appointment. The art at the Contemporary Wing showing will be for sale.
