Ed McGowin: Name Change<br>(One Artist, Twelve Personas, Thirty Five Years)



November 2 through December 12, 2010

From 1970 to 1972 Ed McGowin changed his name 12 times in the District of Columbia’s court system to demonstrate his theory that there is not just one linear course in an artist’s career. Over the past 35 years McGowin has continued to create works under each of these names. This exhibition presents works by each of McGowin’s 11 personas ranging from photography to painting to sculpture.
