Wanna go to an asskicking opening on Monday?

The Confidence Booster by Angelo Tirambulo

Location: Capitol Skyline Hotel Lounge, 10 I (eye) Street SW, Washington, DC 20024

WPA launches the installation and exhibition component of the Hothouse series at the Capitol Skyline Hotel with The Confidence Booster, an installation by artist Angelo Tirambulo. 
Consisting of wallpaper featuring flattering statements and a series of twelve mirrors containing lyrics from recent hip-hop music appropriated to directly compliment the viewers, the installation nods to our image-conscious culture. This wry presentation of soothing but ultimately superficial phrases gently satirizes its own source material, while subtly acknowledging its irresistible appeal.
