This piece was originally created in response to the comments made about women during the 2016 election season. We Hold These Truths to be Self Evident features statements by former and current male politicians about women and their bodies to expose how political figures from across the political spectrum degrade and demean women. The work is intended to make people think about the implications of a culture where political figures use and condone such language.

Piscataway

Joerael Je Mural Opening

November 27, 2018 to Wed, December 5

Flagg Building
500 17th Street, NW
Atrium
Washington, DC 20006

On Tuesday, November 27th, come see artist Joerael Je’s newest mural “Imprinting Dimensional States of Being,” inspired by the Piscataway Nation. Joerael is a narrative artist with a focus on creating complex figurative works, which focus on the subtle body, psychological imprint and the metabolic hum. The content will highlight the imprints of the Piscataway, who once held great power over the area we know today as the nation’s capital. The artwork will provide a visual presentation of the Piscataway Nation to bring awareness to their past and current history. The mural will also address the imprint of this place of all beings who walk upon this land.  This mural on the ground floor of the Flagg Building will beg the question: How can we witness the way we dance upon this particular place and the earth as a whole?

*Open only to GW students and community
