Lori Parkerson, the owner of Redeem, knows how to put together interesting events. The previous Redeem event still lingers in our heads as one of the best events we’ve ever attended in Washington DC; The Redeem + Mutiny Pioneer launch event was just as good.
Mutiny is a curated grouping of objects (typically vintage or antique but not always) around a theme, by local artist M. Gert Barkovic. Over the past year, Mutiny has taken on different guises or themes. The lastest theme is Pioneer – What makes Mutiny Pioneer so exceptional is its execution. Much more than a display of curiosities, Pioneer is a deep immersive experience, history washes over you. The eclectic collection of objects constantly surprises, from writing materials to antique books and vintage boots. As a history nerd this display is like a trap meant to snare my attention; I quickly forget where I am as I leaf through the pages of old books or stare at vintage tools. Pioneer is precisely the type of intellectual art meets commerce that DC does better than perhaps any other city in the world.
The Pioneer theme was perfectly complimented by members of Chesapeake, VA musical group Bison. Normally a seven person ensemble, four members of the group captivated the crowd with pared-down versions of their folksy music.
