As always DC Art News beat me to it, but I just have to highlight one paragraph in James Bailey's response to Options 05...
Ms. Lumpkin – coming as no surprise to me – has dramatically failed in her mission to bring us the cutting-edge of D.C. art with Options 05 – instead, she has given us retrograde phantom paper cuts with the blunt edge of her condescending view of D.C. art and artists, and has compounded that error by virtually ignoring the radical voices and visions of marginalized and minority artists in this city who are not fortunate enough to be able pay the outrageous tuition to attend art school. Ms. Lumpkin, like most New York City art insiders, seems obsessed with finding the next great white hope artist somewhere out there in MFA land.
I haven't seen the show yet, so I'm withholding my own judgement, but so far I haven't read any reviews that were positive toward the show as a whole.
I myself am not very familiar with the margins of the DC art world. James, could you point us towards some artists to make up a virtual Anti-Options show??
