The City of Baltimore is in the midst of a cultural renaissance. While artists’ studios, maker spaces, DIY workshops, and tech labs are proliferating in neighborhoods across the city, within these progressive working environments encouragement and support for marginalized groups may be lacking. To address these issues, a small group of like-minded people came together to form The Baltimore Women’s Maker Collective (BWMC), a growing, intersectional feminist group of artists, creative entrepreneurs, and craftspeople. The BWMC was recently awarded a Grit Fund Grant by The Contemporary, XXChange is able to expand the visibility of BWMC and celebrate the achievements of all people in the greater Baltimore region and beyond who are breaking gender and racial barriers. Through XXChange, we hope to build a creative exhibition and series of symposium style events that complement the community and conversations already taking place. This event will provide the arts community an opportunity to network with and inspire more self-identifying women interested in pursuing and/or participating in the fields of art, craft and technology. Artists selected for the exhibition are eligible for one of 15 honoraria awards of $100.

This year marks the second year of LabBodies Performance Art: Review Borders Boundaries and Barricades. In between July 27th to July 30th, 2016, we will highlight time based performance art work that has been presented in the greater Baltimore region.

The Labbodies curatorial team: Ada Pinkston and Hoesy Corona will fill the gallery with an installation that include sculptural assemblage, video art, photos, and other ephemera that is connected to performance art. For this tightly curated installation we will invite a number of local performance artists.

We will program a live performance every night over the course of 3 days. The live performances will be a program of performative work that examines the theme Retrospective. The term Retrospective has been considered and used more in contemporary times than it has been in the past one hundred years. Performers will be asked develop proposals that is an examination of or related to the past. There will performances that are an examination of history as far back as one hundred years, to one year, to one month, to one week. Performances that examine a macro retrospective, such as social, political, or economic history will be juxtaposed with performances that examine a micro retrospective such as personal histories related to identity, family, and aging.

Participating artists will be selected through an open call and nominated by an advisory panel. To submit a proposal, please click the link below:
