‘Next at the Corcoran’: Art in Focus

Photographer Aaron Canipe’s work includes a portrait of his mother, trapped in time (or maybe just the beauty parlor). (Aaron Canipe)

You’ll find all the info you need to know about the show, including artist bios and public programs, here. Read my review and check out a selection of additional images from the show after the jump.

The people and places of Winfield Park, N.J. — the artist’s home state — are featured in the work of Caitlyn Bierman. (Caitlyn Bierman)

In the series of photographs “The Good Life,” Michael Evnen trains his lens on his home state of Nebraska. (Michael Evnen)

Kaitlin Jencso looks at the people and places of Southern Maryland, where she grew up, with a mix of detachment and affection. Her father is the subject of this photo. ( Kaitlin Jencso)

Several photographic installations include a mix of new and archival photos, as in Bierman’s series “A Town With Pride.” (Caitlyn Bierman)

You are being watched. Jeff Herrity’s “Focus Group” includes several sentry-like figures outfitted with video cameras. Visitors are welcome to reposition a few of the figures, which are mounted on wheels. A live stream of images can be viewed at www.jeffherritynet/focusgroup. (Jeff Herrity)

“Next” also features painting, drawing, performance and other media. Hannah Jeon’s thesis project is a collection of half-knitted scarves. Each work’s title references a Bible verse. (Michael O'Sullivan)

Juliann Holloway contributes a floor “drawing,” reminiscent of Australian aboriginal painting. (Michael O'Sullivan)
Born and raised in Washington, D.C., Michael O’Sullivan has worked since 1993 at The Washington Post, where he covers art, film and other forms of popular — and unpopular — culture.
