About This Event

Continuing in its tradition of coordinating gallery exhibitions with D.C.’s world-class museum shows, Contemporary Wing presents, “MUMBO SAUCE,” in conjunction with the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s Pump Me Up – D.C. Subculture of the 1980s, currently on display at the museum. MUMBO SAUCE is a survey of artists with deep roots in Washington, D.C., and explores how such factors as Go-Go, graffiti, punk, hardcore, graphic design and fine art have shaped and influenced the work of these artists. MUMBO SAUCE is curated jointly by Roger Gastman, curator of the Corcoran’s “Pump Me Up” show, and Lauren Gentile, founder of Contemporary Wing.

Mumbo Sauce is a red, sweet, and tangy sauce, akin to barbeque or plum sauce. Indigenous to Washington, D.C., the condiment is found in carry outs throughout D.C. and the surrounding metro area. Mumbo Sauce is endemic to Washington D.C.’s African American culture, and it is the flavor of home for many D.C. natives.

Just as Mumbo Sauce conveys a rich texture and flavor that is distinctively D.C. in the cultural arena of food, the art works in the MUMBO SAUCE exhibit reflect the living, breathing soul of the city. MUMBO SAUCE explores how living and working in the District has shaped the artistic evolution of the featured artists. Participating artists include BORF, Richard Colman, Cynthia Connolly, Tim Conlon, COOL "DISCO" DAN, Clark Fox, Globe Poster Archive, Mark Jenkins, Rosina Teri Memolo, Mingering Mike and Robin Rose.

4 – 6pm Press Preview
6 – 10pm Opening Reception (artists in attendance)
7 – 10pm Music by DJ Stereo Faith
