Arlington Arts Center: Borrowed from Dust by Marissa Long

  • Date: Sep 21 - Dec 14, 2019

Borrowed from Dust is a meditation on memory, loss, and impermanence. In her sculpture, photographs, and mixed-media works, Marissa Long utilizes visual and material symbols of obfuscation and mourning. Attempting to visualize what we’re unable to see, the work in the exhibition explores our strategies for understanding the incomprehensible.

Marissa Long is an Arlington, VA-based artist, and became a resident at Arlington Arts Center in 2017. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including Civilian Art Projects (Washington, DC), Transformer (Washington, DC), Washington Project for the Arts (Washington, DC), Cell Project Space (London, UK), Deutscher Kuenstlerbund (Berlin, Germany), Blank Projects (Cape Town, South Africa), and American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center (Washington, DC). Her work has been covered by various publications, including The Washington Post and Washington City Paper. Long holds a BFA from Corcoran College of Art & Design.
