DescriptionDADA 2.0 features art by local artists that expresses absurdity and discontent through the lens of Dada. For two years, life in the U.S. has been bizarre, confusing, and at times downright disturbing. With the COVID-19 pandemic, uptick in violence, and social and political strife, we have all been feeling off-kilter. In some ways, this is reminiscent of the period during WWI, where artists expressed their discontent towards violence, war, and nationalism. They did so by rejecting logic, reason, and decadence through an artistic expression of nonsense, irrationality, and unconventionalism. This movement became known as Dada, or Dadaism, and birthed through the idea that “dada,” known as baby talk, evokes childishness and absurdity.

Join us on opening day, Friday, February 4 between 12-9pm for the widest selection of artwork. Del Ray Artisans has taken the ALX Promise pledge and is committed to the health and safety of our visitors. The gallery capacity is limited to 15 people at any one time. Face masks must be worn by all while visiting the gallery.

DRA, founded in 1992, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote art for the benefit of artists and the community.
The gallery appreciates the continued support from the City of Alexandria, Alexandria Commission for the Arts, Virginia Commission for the Arts, and National Endowment for the Arts.
