Strength in Practice

June 1st – July 19th

Opening Friday, June 1st , 2018 6-10pm

“Strength in theory is based on physicality or mental fortitude. Strength in practice is not so easily evaluated.” – Curator Joy Davis

The exhibition “Strength In Practice” (June 1, 2018 –July 19, 2018) will contribute to conversations about mental health, body image, gender, violence, peace, and perception. The exhibition is not attempting to define a word, but unpack the world’s anxieties about a concept that could be equated with words like love and justice.

This retreat – conceived by The Contemporary in 2016 – is in service of deepening networks, opportunities, and practices in Baltimore’s arts community. The Baltimore Artist Retreat features topical workshops, panel discussions, seminars, and presentations by participating artists. The retreat is free for all selected artists and includes transportation to and from the center, lodging, and all meals.

Literary, visual, performing, and sound artists currently residing in Baltimore City and Baltimore County are invited to submit an application. 

Participating artists will be selected to attend the retreat based on the following criteria: 

  • an interest in expanding artistic networks;
  • a need to access professional development resources;
  • a desire to share one’s practice with a broader audience;
  • a demonstrated commitment to Baltimore’s arts community.

Participating artists will be required to:

Artist/District is a grant-making program, created by Councilman Ryan Dorsey, for artists living in Baltimore’s 3rd City Council district. Four artists will be awarded $3,000 each by way of lottery.

The program has been shaped through a community effort, led by artists who reside in the 3rd Council District, as well as arts and cultural leaders from throughout Baltimore City. Councilman Dorsey and this committee recognize the importance of artists and art-making to our communities, and believe that artists shouldn’t be forced to choose between making art and supporting themselves and their families. The Artist/District grants program will give artists the opportunity to produce work that will enrich our community and support a culture of creativity within the district.
