For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights is currently on display at the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture, University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

“Through a host of media—including photographs, television and film, magazines, newspapers, posters, books, and pamphlets—the project explores the historic role of visual culture in shaping, influencing, and transforming the fight for racial equality and justice in the United States from the late-1940s to the mid-1970s. For All the World to See includes a traveling exhibition, website, online film festival, and richly illustrated companion book.”

EXCHANGE: a home-based artist residency is a thesis project by Hyejung Jang, a Curatorial Practice MFA candidate at Maryland Institute College of Arts (MICA) in partnership with School 33 Art Center. EXCHANGE is designed to explore new ways and potential for forming intimate connections between artists and community members by supporting emerging artists, and integrating contemporary art into everyday life.

This is a two-month long project—from January 23 to March 23, 2013—placing two emerging international artists with two local families in Baltimore. It transforms the home into a fertile platform of new experience, cross-cultural dialogue, social integration, education, and art while the artists live with the host families. The work created by the artist during their residency will be exhibited at School 33 from March 22 to May 25.

The project is currently in the phase of raising funding through a Kickstarter campaign.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Baltimore One-Minute Play Festival will feature over 50 brand new One-Minute Plays by nearly 30 local or Baltimore-rooted playwrights. Burgeoning playwrights will be working alongside prominent artistic voices in the region. OMPF takes the temperature of a collective artistic conscious through these series of pulsing moments.

Playwrights were selected by invitation and asked to engage in OMPF’s playmaking approach. Playwrights are encouraged to write about anything they are passionate about, and, as emerging themes or ideas become apparent, the plays are curated and presented in clusters to reflect those elements. Teams of directors and actors work to stage each cluster of plays.

Artists from EMP Collective, Single Carrot Theatre, Baltimore Rock Opera Society (BROS), Glass Mind Theatre, and other Baltimore theatre artists are among the participants.
