Join us on Saturday, December 3rd at 1pm for an artist talk with C. Harvey! C’s solo exhibition, ‘The Re-Education’ is on view in our Members Gallery from November 11, 2016 through January 21, 2017.

Review of the exhibition on Bmoreart: http://bmoreart.com/2016/11/the-re-education-of-c-harvey.html

The Re-Education is an exhibition featuring mixed media and sculptural works, photography, and text in an introspective analysis of the internal and external forces that have helped condition the gifted black mind. Exploring the emotional and psychological factors that cause and enforce the poverty mindset, the collection presents a new perspective on the narrative of institutional, social, societal, economic, and generational pathology that lend a hand in perpetuating the misunderstanding and exploitation of the 21st century black in America.

The Artist in Residence program offers professional artists of all kinds the opportunity to pursue their art in the premier wilderness setting of Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve.  Writers, composers, two and three-dimensional visual artists, photographers, digital artists, filmmakers, and artisans are all encouraged to apply.

The residency lasts approximately two weeks.  This includes several days in Bettles, Alaska to pack and prepare for the trip, eight days in the back country and then a few days for the artist to prepare and give a community program about their experience.   The artist will accompany park staff on a working back country patrol in July, August or early September and will be expected to participate in the working aspects of the patrol.  Patrols may accommodate the artist to a certain extent, but artists must be both physically fit enough to attempt such a journey and also possess the skills and experience for extended rigorous wilderness travel.

Fee: $0.00
Entry Deadline: 11/30/16





Kahlon is looking for Baltimore based black and brown artists to participate in an upcoming exhibition entitled Proximity to Dead Skin. This show will be the second installment of Kahlon: The Cut Up series and will take place at EMP Collective on February 4th, 2017. This exhibition will showcase artists working in performance, video, and new genres.

We asking press, creative leaders, and creative institutions in Baltimore to spread the word about this open call on their platforms and forward this email to other networks you think will have an interest in this. We have attached a image to post on IG/social media and a pdf for guideline reference.

In this exhibition we arrive at the Proximity to Dead Skin as a way to describe a daily existence. Living as the other in corrupted and spoiled environments; the distance to the end or the beginning–the dead skin–tends to be closer to us. This proximity within itself, is a ring that we inhabit that is not of death, but is living on the edge of a very specific brink, in which our lives could be ended due to forces or systems outside of our control. How does one react to such a circumstance? How do you consider evolution and progress given the length at which we have reinforced our humanity and confronted the opposition? – Curators, Abdu Ali + Elliott Jerome Brown Jr.
