Starting in July 2016, ARCH Development Corporation will launch an interactive, multimedia installation series called IMMERSION, a project supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. These four installations will be held in 3 locations around Historic Anacostia and offer visitors the chance to touch, create, contribute, and share. The four artists selected from the 66 applications are Olivia Morrow, Phillip McGaughy, Becky Borlan, and Susana Raab.

IMMERSION kicks off with Feminicity by Olivia Morrow on July 29 in Vivid Solutions Gallery located at 1231 Good Hope Road, SE.

Morrow will create a winding installation of a colorful abstract armatures suspended from the walls and ceiling will be wrapped in layers of donated textiles to create an environment that will grow, change, and be re-arranged.

Women (anyone who identifies as a woman) may donate their clothing or other textiles (including but not limited to shirts, dresses, leggings, scarves, undergarments, bed sheets, etc.) to be used as material for this installation. The artist asks that the donated items have some personal significance or tell a story about the donor’s life.
