Call + Response is an annual art show pairing writers and artists to create new works with a twist. Five writers each contribute a call—a short piece of fiction or poetry—and five artists each create a new installation piece in response to one call. For the first time, this year's writers will view the artworks prior to the show's opening and respond in some way, possibly through creation, revision, or reflection, to the responses.

In 2012, Call + Response will run from June 2–16, 2012, at Hamiltonian Gallery,
1353 U St NW, Washington, D.C.
Metro: U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo

Call + Response is co-curated by William John Bert and Kira Wisniewski. Visit the 2011 and 2010 sites.
