New Date and Location for MUMBO SAUCE: April 5th - 21st

Continuing in its tradition of coordinating gallery exhibitions with D.C.’s world-class museum shows, Contemporary Wing presents, “MUMBO SAUCE,” in conjunction with the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s Pump Me Up – D.C. Subculture of the 1980s, currently on display at the museum. MUMBO SAUCE is a survey of artists with deep roots in Washington, D.C., and explores how such factors as Go-Go, graffiti, punk, hardcore, graphic design and fine art have shaped and influenced the work of these artists. MUMBO SAUCE is curated jointly by Roger Gastman, curator of the Corcoran’s “Pump Me Up” show, and Lauren Gentile, founder of Contemporary Wing.
Mumbo Sauce is a red, sweet, and tangy sauce, akin to barbeque or plum sauce. Indigenous to Washington, D.C., the condiment is found in carry outs throughout D.C. and the surrounding metro area. Mumbo Sauce is endemic to Washington D.C.’s African American culture, and it is the flavor of home for many D.C. natives.
Just as Mumbo Sauce conveys a rich texture and flavor that is distinctively D.C. in the cultural arena of food, the art works in the MUMBO SAUCE exhibit reflect the living, breathing soul of the city. MUMBO SAUCE explores how living and working in the District has shaped the artistic evolution of the featured artists. Participating artists include BORF, Richard Colman, Cynthia Connolly, Tim Conlon, COOL "DISCO" DAN, Clark Fox, Globe Poster Archive, Mark Jenkins, Rosina Teri Memolo, Mingering Mike and Robin Rose.

To preview the works, please contact

MUMBO SAUCE is open April 5th - 21st

Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980's, the first exhibition to explore the thriving underground of Washington, D.C. during the 1980's, giving visual form to the raucous energy of graffiti, Go-Go music, and a world-renowned punk and hardcore scene.
If you have not had a chance to visit the PUMP ME UP: D.C. Subculture of the 1980's, get there soon! The show closes April 7th. In the meantime, here a few upcoming PMU events!

March 28th
During the 1980s, Washington’s go-go and punk scenes adhered to different sets of cultural rules, yet both shared a staunchly DIY approach. This panel discussion, moderated by Alona Wartofsky, a former writer and editor for City Paper and The Washington Post, will explore the music and gang cultures of pre-gentrification D.C. Panelists include Trouble Funk’s “Big” Tony Fisher, Rare Essence’s Andre “Whiteboy” Johnson, longtime Washington music writer Mark Jenkins, former D.C. Police detective Donald “Goose” Gossage, and Gangster George, a former member of the Gangster Chronicles crew.

Ayo back up in the days though, when I was just a lil shorty, no J-O

Like we ain't have a care up in the world to name

Now the whole world wish we young forever and remain, never change

But we never stay the same on the same roads

And our interests and age grows as we innovate those, slow

We forced to be tossed in the kitchen

When life throws the fork at you don't be the chicken

I remember skippin class like I had the last… Laugh now cry later

Had a crazy past

Used to throw the finger at the bike cops passin (fuck em)

Fuck em, then we'd run around in Frick Park dashin

Officer Caplan used to know my first and my last name

Arrested me in school, that's a bad day

We used to chill up in The Smoke Shop, fuck with dude

Catch me wilin out now, ain't nothin new


You can't turn it back when it's gone…

No groundhog flash in the morn…

And life moves fast when you young

When you look back are you gon pass where you goin?

I wanna be young forever though…
