You'll find the CountDown Temporary Art Space in a residential neighborhood a short walk from the Bethesda Metro. But you won't find it there much longer. It's in a house that is scheduled to be demolished in the next six weeks or so (hence the clever name).
The last of several art shows that have popped up in the house the past few months, "Construct-Deconstruct" opens Friday with a reception from 6 to 8:30 p.m. It features site-specific installations on the theme of construction by four talented artists: Mei Mei Chang, Thomas Drymon, Scottie Fleming and Jessica van Brakle.
In a twist, their art will be destroyed along with the house.
According to curator Jackie Hoysted, the show will remain on view at 4526 Cheltenham Dr., Bethesda, "until implosion." After Friday's opening, the work will be viewable by appointment; contact Hoysted at 240-506-6910 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
